    Agreed. I was given 30 minutes at my previous employer to gather my stuff, say goodbyes, etc. That was 25 minutes longer than they gave the other 15 supervisors that day - because they liked me. lol

    I've quit, been let go and been hired back by 2 of my previous employers for not burning bridges. I've also hired back someone I fired before.:crazy:

    Never a good idea to leave a company on bad terms.

    Or maybe you have learned maybe mgmt is not viewed as approachable as you think? I've seen that. No matter what mgmt thinks, the employees perception is the truth.

    It's all right there, but you want to insist I'm wrong. Go ahead, and by the way have a nice day - you sound like you could use one!

    I didn't say anything about being wrong. You misunderstood what I said. I was simply commenting on the generalized "it's clear that we are approachable and it is encouraged." comment. I've been on both sides and I have seen management think one thing but the employees perceive it differently.

    This thread is somewhat disturbing.We have a loyal employee of 20 years,who finds a higher paying job.And she is in the wrong for trying to better herself.

    Working is a privilege and every employee in every job should just be glad to have a job, what ever salary they get is what the 'boss' deems fair and appropriate. Of course the world doesn't work that way but I've ran into so many 'bosses' that felt that it was that way.

    Which is why I have been my own boss for the last 21 years.

    I've been on both sides if this.

    The owner of my company figured out how to retain me. I work from home 4 days a week and get a decent quarterly bonus. I set my own schedule. I do more work than anyone else in my position within the company. That's part of the benefit of having me work without the typical office distractions. Plus I can set my own schedule. That helps as well.

    I have had two competitors try to steal me away recently. They offer me less and I would have to drive to their office.

    If a company wants to keep an employee they will figure out how to keep them before they look elsewhere. Unfortunately, what keeps one person may not keep another.

    Loyalty goes both ways.
