No, there is no reason to tell.

Nope. I would inform them when I put my 2 weeks in.

They have partners who they will side with over you. Don't tell them until you've accepted an offer and clear conflicts.

Thanks all. Just wanted to see how everyone else was thinking. I don't want to burn no bridges with my mentors at my current firm but I might miss the chance to leave if I don't leave now.

It’s tough having mentors that are at your firm because, at the end of the day, they’re not totally disinterested. They have an interest in you staying, so they likely wouldn’t put your best interests/professional development first. Once you’re set to work for the new firm, tell your mentors before you submit formal notice.

If the risk of sending over an imperfect thank you note after interview is much higher than not sending one, should I still send one then? From an interviewer perspective, have you ever 1) rejected a candidate because they didn’t send a thank you note, or 2) changed your hiring decision from no to yes due to a great thank you note?
