No. of Recommendations: 5
I think we discussed this before, but I don't recall a solid answer was given.

Normally, if you plan to leave your job they want 2 weeks' notice. Well, I'm retiring. Even with a pandemic lock-down, I'm just soooo done. I'm assuming 2 weeks is not enough. From a practical standpoint, I could just leave. I don't need a recommendation in the future. But I harbor no ill-will, and I'm a stockholder, so I would rather exit gracefully.

I'm thinking two months' notice. That gives them time to interview, get someone for me to "show the ropes"**. Enough? I'm assuming I have to notify both my manager and HR (that is probably company-dependent, but I wouldn't think it ideal for a manager to hear it from HR before he hears it from me).

Etiquette isn't my strong suit.


**I'm not going to be able to train a new failure analysis person...that takes on the order of a year since they don't teach that in college. But I can at least show them what is where, and who to talk to if various situations arise.
