Ghosting my job - Starting a new job without quitting
So I work for a small startup in CA (no longer with Yahoo) and executive management has lied to us, ignores our technical suggestions and blames us when their ideas break things, and I’m pretty sure has commited investor and client fraud. All of engineering is leaving, but they have no clue, YET. We also all work remote.
So here is a crazy thought expiriment. I plan to find a new job in the next month or two (Holiday slows things down). When I have secured new employment I will tell my fellow coworkers I am leaving in 2 weeks. On my final day I will return my computer to our office. I will then start my new job and wait for management to discover I no longer respond to any communication. I estimate I could possibly go 2-4 weeks before they realize I am gone. They have very bad track record with actually laying people off, so I can see me still being “employed” anywhere from 2 weeks to 2 months. At some point they will have to fire me, but curious as to how long that will take.
I am okay with screwing upper management and I would make sure my current coworkers were aware of what I was doing - ghosting my job. I NEVER will work for anyone in upper management again.
Thoughts? Has anyone done this? Have you heard of it being done?
