Excited to quit Splunk next week and go off to my new adventure! But how does quitting at Splunk work? Do you need a resignation letter? Do you need to contact hr? I want to make sure to get an exit interview.

- Intel babubhattCourtesy anywhere is to tell your manager in a 1-1. Then you can follow up with a letter if needed / requested.
- No, but my other time quitting was at a start up with zero processes. I’ve been here for a few years now and wanted to know how the kids do it these days. Also as I mentioned I want to make sure I get an exit interview. Pretty sure my boss will be pissed and try to badmouth me. Not that I care that much, have plenty of people that love me here and have already signed elsewhere. But knowing what I’m getting into helps!Jun 10 1
- Splunk is a great company to work for! But of course 90% of you happiness at work is going to be determined by your managers. I’m bummed that this team I am on right now is not giving me what I want (too much politics and red tape, little autonomy and career advancement opportunity) so the best decision in my case is just to go somewhere else. An internal transfer is not really an option bc the above mentioned politics :) I would say if you are considering splunk - or any other company - make sure you have multiple conversations about management styles, career perspectives, and make sure you align with that! A question I always ask when interviewing is “do you like your boss”?Jun 10 2
- Should submit a letter of resignation. They will ask you where you are going, answer if you like, but if you are going to a competitor that will be your last day. We had a guy go to a competitor and HR were pretty shitty to him left him stranded on a customer visit, disabled his computer and had to cancel flights and hotels and go directly home.
- Sad to see you go OP 😞 I think you should start the conversation with your manager on your next 1:1. Talk to your HR person (your HR business partner) and ask for an exit interview over email. Good luck in your next venture!
- Have to say I am older than I look and get pretty excited when I get IDed at bars. :D Wouldn’t call myself immature. Most of the time I try to think about what comes out of my mouth or keyboard before speaking and am mature enough to know there is no need to be a jackass to strangers on the internet.Jun 11 1
- Splunk SkatefreePretty sure exit interviews are a semi-mandatory part of the process at Splunk (and frankly everywhere). If that’s your wish I think you’ll be in good shape by just formally resigning to your boss, hopefully giving 2 weeks, and being professional about it.
- New / Other DuQvV7ymoreI know a sky-writer. It could be epic!
In all seriousness, 2 weeks notice is the norm to allow clean transition.
BofA made this 1 month years ago for certain levels. Dunno if that’s still the norm.
Don’t be a jerk to your co-workers who have to pick up the slack.
Are you retiring or refueling?
- Send an email out at your earliest convineance that you have decided to leave the company. I hope you already know how long of a notice period you need to provide. If not then follow up with HR and get this info first and send your email out.
- NetBrain Technologies ..x_x..Just join the new company and when your ex-boss calls you to ask where you are, tell him that you forgot to send a resignation email and it would be in your drafts and ask him to wait a couple of minutes till you could send him the email that you had in your drafts.
Do follow up with your ex-boss to confirm if he received the resignation 🤣
