How important is it to leave on good terms with your employer.

No matter what grudge you hold, never burn bridges. You never know when your lives cross same path again.


Oh yes.. it is. Most companies do have a rehire status that will ensure the reason and the circumstances of how you left the company. If it wasn't in good terms, the same will be noted in that part and in some cases may hamper future employment. In my personal experience, Amazon and Google does Dona background check, so that's important.


Never burn bridges.


Well, let's think about this, what would your employer say about you to your future employers? Always leave with class.

The world is smaller than you think, so to save your future self from your present self's actions, leave in goodwill. You burn bridges only if you're ready for the consequences that comes with it.

It's tempting to lash out depending on the situation but I've learned the hard way that the odds of you crossing paths with that person again are a lot bigger than you'd think. If a potential employer were to ask them about you, you want to be confident they'll give a positive response.
