Is it bad etiquette to say where you’re going when you leave a job? Why do some people not want to say?

So people at the current agency can’t tank the offer with a phone call to the new agency.

Many folks are coached by their new company not to share. If they are following a former manager or co-worker, that exposes a breach of non-compete.

In my experience most people are open about it unless the offer isn’t finalized, they are follower former boss/co-worker there and worried about non-compete, going to a client or they’re feeling particularly superstitious. I’m sure some people are just private but usually it shows up on linked in shortly after anyway

The ink needs to dry before someone goes meddling in your business.

On the contrary. It’s a courtesy to say it. You don’t owe the employer you’re about to leave any information about your future plans.

Many reasons someone wouldn’t want to say it, but I think the main one is, the ad business is a small world, and they don’t want anyone contacting their new employer about them.

You can if you want to, but it's ok if you don't want to. It's your personal decision.

I need help forming an argument. My company recently improved its parental leave policy, increasing it by a few weeks and also increasing the amount of money that gets paid as part of ST disability.

Last time there was an update it was retroactive by 6 months but this time it’s “case by case”

I made a post yesterday generally asking thoughts on being asked to do a design assessment as part of an interview. I just received the project, and it is a five page brief asking for 2-3 variations of two deliverables as part of a phase one campaign for an existing real product. I am to present, make changes live on the call, then give them my files by midnight the day after.

I feel like this is scamming me of my intellectual time with no guarantee of an offer. Am I justified or being cynical?

My partner had an interview where a full naked body (either from a roommate or s/o?) was exposed on the interviewers side of their Zoom background. No apology or acknowledgement towards the situation was ever expressed during/after the interview. She decided to bring it up to HR and they completely brushed it off as well. She is emotionally scarred and in such a slump by the situation and job search in general. Is this normal agency behavior, especially from HR?! So grossed out by the response.
