    Congratulations on the offer.
    Only if the team you are joining is close to what you are working on, then yes same day they will relive you. Like Outlook and gmail.
    Even if they relive you on same day, its HR decision to keep you on notice period for 45days and pay you the salary or not.
    Stocks will only vest if you are an employee on the day of vesting.

      Yes, no need to show the proof.
      But depends on how confident you are when saying.

      Sorry I don't understand completely what you mean by that.
      Aren't we supposed to fill some forms in AskHR?

      You can tell your manager that you are doing to a competitor. You dont need to fill any info about that anywhere. You can choose not to.

    Based on my research when leaving Microsoft Redmond

    1. Companies which hire a lot of people from Microsoft. All the big names even if the business is unrelated. Finally, it's HR's discretion though.
    2. Yes
    3. Depends how they process your exit. Fill out your last day as Jan 15 and hope it sticks.
    4. No, you are free to join

      I like to believe Google, Amazon will definitely be on the list. Good to know that 2 is true.
      If you don't mind could you happen to know, how they would process year end bonus w.r.t leaving date. Is it same as the stock vest( Jan 15th).

      In Redmond, the year for bonus purposes runs from Jul1 to Jun30 with the bonus being payed out on September 15th. I left in July and still got the bonus check in mail in September.
