Planning to give my 2 weeks notice tomorrow. I am not in any core business unit that is in direct competition with VMware. Will MS walk me out on the spot?

    Why would you even tell where you are going?

    Leaving E*TRADE, my promotion was canceled. If I had just waited past the weekend, my promotion and retroactive salary bump would have been implemented in the hr system. The retroactive salary bump was due to my cohort's delayed promotion. Missed out on a few thousand dollars. In my jobs after that, I became really careful in giving notices.

    No, very likely you won’t be walked out. Do you mind sharing offer details?

    I did that couple of years ago and was walked off that day. They paid for the notice period.

      Yes. Got greeted by HR and my VP and told to give my badge and take my personal stuff.

      Oh wow, guess I do have to be prepared for that. Thanks for letting me know! Just curious were you in a BU that has a competing product?

      So if they walk you out, they remove all your access/account, are you still on the payroll for that 2 weeks, hence the benefit still continues in those 2 weeks?

    Be prepared for it in any case. Clean laptop, take your stuff home the day before you tell them. Worst case you get a paid two week vacation out of it

      If I get walked out they are still on the hook for the 2 weeks?

      Not legally, but I've never actually heard of a reputable company that didn't pay out for the next 2 weeks. People would stop giving notice.
