What is the appropriate way to provide your two week notice? Should you have a conversation with your coach or project leads beforehand, or should you just go on your internal company page and hit that resign button and go through whatever processes you are prompted to do? What steps do you take before after submitting your notice as a general practice?

You have a resign button? Best practice - Personal mentors (hopefully they know already and you discussed the decision with them) 1-on-1 - Career coach 1-on-1 - Project leadership 1-on-1 - They’ll provide input on how/when to tell clients and rest of team - HR - email - Friends who don’t know already know - Rest of team (last day on site at the latest) - Clients you personally care about (last day on site in-person. Don’t let leadership push you into ghosting) - Farewell email

Ah I see. That definitely makes sense. Thanks. I can see that being a major issue for engagements that have a high turnover rate as well.

I only told my manager the day before I hit the resign button. When you hit that, they'll ask you for your last day. I chose one week later. My coach was never really helpful, so I didn't bother letting her know. I didn't want to have fake conversations with someone who wasn't really interested in my career anyway. Just sent her an email the day before my last day, that's it. Burning bridges? Idk, may be, even if you had a conversation, there was no way I would've contacted my coach in the future anyway. I felt pings are more personal than emails. So, I pinged people close to me and let them know.

What do you all think about not telling them specifically which company and position you are heading to, but more letting them know in consultant speak? Ex. Strategy role for a large food and beverage company

Why do I have to disclose if its a competitor?

Those working in consulting at big 4..are you constantly seeing yourself working 50+hrs during Covid and just being told to keep doing it? To what extent can we push back? Just because we are home doesn’t mean we don’t have family obligations as well... expectations up front are never communicated so I don’t find out I’ll be working long until I start a new client....meanwhile many colleagues are working 40hrs consistently but pay is same.... not a complainer but something’s gotta give
