Not exactly what you’re looking for but I interviewed with them and did a lot of research on the company as well. All 2nd or 3rd hand info but happy to share my experience if you want to DM me. In general really liked them. They’re known to have a very thorough interview process

This is such a basic question, but what’s the best way to give my two weeks and not have things be completely awkward at work?

My boss has a tendency to be passive aggressive towards people that are leaving and given that my office is right next to hers I’m worried my last two weeks are going to be so uncomfortable. Suggestions/advice?

I get interrupted a lot at work now that we are virtual. I don't feel like this happens to everyone else in my team as much, meaning folks tend to let them talk longer. So I've reduced my contribution and talk less. But then others make the same point I'm thinking and would normally have said. So now I just look like a silent non-contributor or someone who gets interrupted a lot. Office/team culture is generally good, respectful and peaceful. How do I change this? What can I do differently?
