    Just tell them you found a better opportunity or something along the lines of doing what's best for you. Dont have to give them details, dont have to mention microsoft.

      Your direct manager - verbally and in writing. Your manager will pass this on to HR

      Always the manager. Giving a two weeks notice is common and could help to not burn any bridges

    Always talk VERY nicely while leaving, but give absolute minimal info. Just as your company can get rid of you for giving no reason what so ever (at will employment law), so can you.

    Never give out next employer, expected salary, any grievances you may have at current place... unless giving that piece of info gives you some ridiculous benefit.

      Why. Can they use it against you? Why do you usually say this?
