Should I write my new company’s name in the resignation email? I’m going to Google btw.

Just write “If you are interested where I’m going next, Google it.” 😉

Goodbye emails are always best left brief, respectful, and vague on the details.

Nah. Just go with “I was given an offer I can’t refuse” 😎

I’ll never understand the comments about bragging on FB posts... everyone is anonymous, so how can one can post to achieve glory?

If you were going to some place like, say, Walmart Corporate would you be asking the same question?

That’s completely wrong Google1. Plenty of people who have something lined up don’t share where they are going especially if it’s a competitor.

Not necessary in your resignation email (the type that goes to HR). But my colleagues who send goodbye emails will mention what they are doing next 95% of the time )as long as it’s not a direct competitor).

OP - I would never broadcast my new workplace in that way. The resignation email should do what it’s supposed to do - inform the current employer that you are leaving and it is because you have an opportunity that you feel is more aligned to your future career plans. That’s it. If you want to share that you are moving to Google, you can always do that selectively with a few people, in person or over the phone when you have a 1:1 with them. That’s what I would do.

Humble brag ?

This might be a MBB thing (read: result of up-or-out, general acceptance if not open encouragement to look elsewhere when you are ready or we think you are ready, importance of alumni to our business), but vast majority of our farewell emails feature a description of next steps. Never thought about it twice and / or interpreted as ‘bragging’.

It’s no one’s business—say as much or as little as you feel comfortable with. I have drafted mine and it says I will be pursuing goals outside of the firm

M1: that’s exactly what I’m worried about. I don’t want to make my current manager think I’m bragging about the offer

Thinking back to when I worked for a boutique consulting firm, people still mentioned where they were going if 1) they hadn’t gotten fired/laid off and 2) they were not going to a competitor (could be school, industry, startup, taking a year to travel the world, whatever). These emails generally went to friends at the company and people you worked with on projects. It was never viewed as bragging but rather as a desire to stay in touch — you’d have to have a low opinion of your current company to view it that way. Resignation happened in a separate earlier email to HR plus maybe your current project leads. If #1 wasn’t true, you generally didn’t have the opportunity to write a goodbye email. If #2 wasn’t true then you probably didn’t mention your next steps.

Agree with BCG2. When I left, I mentioned Google - and moreover, folks in general who left for another op would name it (eg. only folks who were forced out / didn’t have a next job lined up would omit naming a next step).

4 year associate here at ID firm with 16 partners: 14 male, 2 female. “Partnership track” is 7-8 years, but there is no transparency, no clear guidelines. Only 1 of the 2 female partners worked her way up here. 1 more senior male associate has been told he is on partnership track. Myself and 3 other female associates are next in line, but 2 have no interest. I want to make partner. What should I be doing to be taken seriously? I am hitting billable hour requirements ✔️ cozying up to adjusters ✔️
