So, long story long. I was laid of a little over a year ago (second one of those) and it took 6 months to find a new job. This new job is not exactly in my area of expertise, but it is with a large, well-known international company that pays well. From the outside it seems like it'd be the happiest place on earth, but the corporate culture is terrible and unnecessarily aggressive (it's been in the news for Weinstein-esque reasons recently). Think about how it is on these boards, but it is to your face every day from the top-level to the bottom rungs. It is a highly toxic place and I don't know anyone who is truly happy with their job.
So, I have had some pretty big issues adjusting to the atmosphere and have been close to walking out or being walked out a couple of times. Mostly it was due to unrealistic, poorly communicated expectations from management and my failure to anticipate their reactions (blame is on both sides). Anyway, I worked through it all and things have been good once we reset the relationship. However, I've been looking for a way out for the last few months.
Ok, I interviewed with a similarly sized and aligned company up the road and accepted their offer yesterday. This new, new job is right up my alley and will basically put me and another person in charge of implementing an enterprise-impacting discipline. Basically, I'm thrilled to be getting out of my current situation on my terms and moving into a space with a lot of positive career possibilities.
Of course I am giving my 2-weeks notice on Friday, but how do I do it? My options are to email personnel managers only at the end of the day; speak to my direct managers first thing and follow their recommendations; or email personnel, direct, and upper management after I leave for the day.
I do not want to burn my bridges because the technology industry around me is very small and I also don't want to do it sloppily so I look like a stooge.
Advise and Discus at will.
