This has been asked before so I’d appreciate any pointers to previous posts.

What are the pros and cons of telling your manager where you’re going and why when leaving the company?

For those who have recently moved from MS to FANG and told their manager where they’re going, were you asked to leave MS the same day?

    I was transparent, told them where I am going and gave two weeks notice. MSFT paid for remainder of two weeks and walked me out same day. Win-win!

      Same here. I had to leave next day but Microsoft pays for two weeks.

      Is there a reason to walk you out on the same day? Because you are going to join a competitor? I'm not aware of how things work, so just curious.

      You are so lucky :-) I saw tons of people being added to black list plus emotionally harmed even though they cashed out the 2 weeks. Never look back if you leave Microsoft

    Be polite and professional with your manager, play it by the book, get the hell out of Redmond and never look back. Congrats on escaping the country club! Search MS Blind there are tons of threads on this. If you get walked out you get paid during your notice period but don’t have to show up, so it’s a win-win.

    Why do you feel the need to tell? Just say that you are evaluating couple of offers and are not decided yet.
