Has anyone been told by manager to lie during an exit interview? What did you do? I'm worried about burning bridges...

Sounds like a great discussion point for the interview.

It’s an exit interview. Yours. Speak your truth. If not now, when?! But stay relevant. It’s not a venting opportunity. Figure out what should change and say it

What’s the risk in telling the truth ?

Still relatively early in my career so I'm worried about burning bridges

The manager isn’t going to have access to it, so speak your truth in a fact-based way

I mean it's not on you to try and make Deloitte better if you are leaving. You can choose to just say nothing if you feel that is best for your career

Yeah, kind of. It was more, 'here's what they will do in response if you are negative', with the implication being that it wasn't a good idea. I agreed.

That is slightly similar to my situation as well. I highly doubt my honest comments will be taken seriously enough to make any constructive changes.

Keep it professional. Use facts. Don’t put a bunch of emotions behind it.
