Do y’all think it is wrong if I don’t send a farewell email my last day at the firm?

I individually email people I have personal/professional relationships with. I’m not a fan of the mass goodbye emails, especially when I barely worked with that person.

I told everyone I worked with or was close with personally. That’s all that really matters.

I think you should email people you worked with or knew somewhat. I always think it leaves a bad taste when someone that I have worked with leaves but never tells me. Doesn’t have to be a mass email.

Nope. Outside of your team, they probably won’t even notice you’re gone.

I was pressured into doing so. I personally never wanted to

I didn’t - 3 yes at a firm but the group was a national group so only ended up working with 10-15 max. Sent private emails/calls that’s about it

Mass farewell emails always seemed strange to me. Very impersonal. I just called or email people individually to tell them if it was someone I cared about

Only if you have bombs to drop. If you are going out, go out a legend.

I left a pretty generic mass email, but I messaged the people I worked with and had good relationships individually.

No

I find myself really yearning of my childhood and remembering the “good ole days”. It really makes me nostalgic and quite depressed for my life.
