I currently make 78k at Lockheed but I’m not doing what I’d like to be doing and i felt stuck and after many conversations with my manager and no solution in sight, I started applying elsewhere. I just recently got an offer from a smaller AI company for 95k that I plan to accept. I’m happy to make the jump, I just don’t know how my manager/coworkers will react when I tell them I’m leaving.

First off: congrats!

Secondly, who cares? You won’t be working with them anymore. If they are happy for you, thats great. If they react poorly, it reflects on them and you should not feel bad about ‘burning bridges’ if you can even call it that. They are used to this stuff.

1. Why do you care? You’re leaving.
2. Most won’t remember you after you leave.

Don’t worry about them. You gave them a chance to help you with your career development. You took matters in your own hands. Congratulations!

Congratulations on the new gig! You can’t control how people will react. Don’t burn any bridges on your way out. The worthwhile people will stay connected. Onwards and upwards!
