Even if you are doing some important task, nonetheless, you could ask the employer to reduce the notice period, say 2 weeks.. In your new company, you can ask 1 more week to join, which i think, the new company should be OK with..
I don't see what a longer period accomplishes.

For more senior positions 3 months is not unusual (it may be possible to negotiate that down, but that's not a given). And there will be negative repercussions if an employee just stops showing up, so that is not advisable. I'm always amazed to hear that there are places where that is common; it seems quite unprofessional to me.

My previous laptop never exploded like that. Read this tiny ad while I sweep up the shards.
