How do you all deal with the guilt of leaving a comany/ team? I have been working at Microsoft for 1 year now, and seriously considering moving. I find the code base to be very legacy and I mostly work on obscure bugs that I spend so much time on, mostly due to navigating this large code base and not having much docs to refer to. Hence I find the job slightly unsatisfying, and that I could learn more elsewhere. However, I love the wlb, the team and company culture. The guilt stops my applying.

I had a recruiter reach out to me about a position that honestly checks a lot of boxes of my ideal job. Interview was one of the best that I’ve ever done. And I got a green light that she’d be setting up interview with the head huncho. The problem is I haven’t heard from her since. It’s been about 3 weeks since our last conversation and I’ve followed up twice through email. Still no response.

Has anyone dealt with this type of behavior? Any advice on how to deal with ghosting recruiters?
