What are the main things I should prepare for before giving my notice to the manager that I'm leaving? Anything unexpected I should watch out for?

This is the first time I'll be quitting a job, so any tips would be appreciated.

      I believe Google prorates bonuses on departure, so I should be fine for that?

      For bonuses there's generally a hard deadline for if you have been employed at this date, you will get bonus even if you leave before it's handed. It's not anywhere near New years, so you're only getting PTO paid out

      E2. I had 2.5 YoE when I did the interviews, so I get the feeling it's partly based on that.
