I can’t find any language stating I have to in my handbook and I work for a large network. I don’t have a senior role and not going to a direct competitor. Am leaving a toxic team and am worried my manager will ask, or say something like we need to know you’re not going to someone we think is a competitor.

I would argue that the leadership of the Holdup companies have plenty of power and money, but no real long term business planning discipline. Your average agency level CEO that falls under the Holdup company has little to no true decision making power.
I don’t even think our agency leadership knew that email was coming today! Goes to show you...
