These firms are not our friends, they judge you off of numbers (utilization, salary, etc.) be happy that you have the chance to leave and enjoy your time off

I don’t think it matters... You got paid for the two weeks! Now don’t worry about it and take the time off

You were paid for 2 weeks, you did not have to sit through those 2 painful weeks at work and YOU WERE NOT FIRED. Irrespective of what others feel or if you are bothered by your coworkers outlook as you left, take this time to plan your next success.

Don’t overthink it. Be glad that you don’t have to see those miserable faces and soulless bodies for another 2 weeks. And look forward to your next journey!

Sometimes it helps the firm’s management reporting metrics to get you out but pay you (you won’t impact utilization metrics if you’re out). It might be a win win rather than firing you so look at the bright side, you’ve got two weeks where you don’t have to go to the office just to sit on the beach.

Same thing happened to my husband, but he was leaving for a different job. He gave two weeks and they basically said ‘stop working and take the money’. The prevailing belief there was it was optics - they didn’t want someone on their way out to have a chance to wreck anything on the ground (smack talk, poach, demotivate others, whatever... whether reasonable or not)

Not uncommon as far as I know. My husband in tech has similar. Regardless of exactly why you’re leaving, if it’s voluntary they don’t want you spreading negative vibes on your last days there especially if they can afford just to pay you and not have you work. Best luck doe the next chapter!

leave for reasons I stated. Is this normal? It was so abrupt. They gave me a box and wanted me out by noon. made me feel like I was being fired. I'm getting paid out for the two weeks though

Did you have performance issues? This isn’t normal unless they wanted to lay you off anyway imo

nope

As long as you get paid the two weeks, sounds like an ideal outcome?

Could be they were scared it could you know... escalate into something else. Don’t sweat it

Life is more than money. Your health is more important
