I like to send them out to get Krispy Kremes for the office and then change the locks before they get back.

59% of people leaving steal data? I find that surprisingly high. How are they defining 'steal data'? On the other hand, what ever happened to ethics in the workplace? (I can already hear people laughing as they read this)

I have worked one place where you were immediately escorted from the building when you gave notice (it was a known policy obviously). So I tied up all my loose ends before my planned exit day and documented everything that needed to be documented. When the day came for me to leave, no one was available to meet with me to discuss me leaving. So I just sent them an email telling them I quit, and explaining I would have gladly worked a 2 week notice if allowed, but knew it wasn't, and then I escorted myself out. No one ever contacted me about why I left, they just sent me my final check. It was a very awkward situation. I have always worked a notice and left on good terms with my other employers. That company also had a no-rehire policy...if you leave, you can't come back. I had no problems with that since, afterall, I was quitting because I didn't want to work there.


If it was easy, everybody would be doing it!;)

Steve,

I have a hard thinking that paying you for not working your last two weeks is punishment. ;)

My employer escorts employees out immediately. If you resign, you are paid for two weeks without having to work; if you are fired, you are not paid the two weeks. This is the only place I've worked that has had that policy.

It doesn't matter to me what is done.

The punishment isn't for you, it's your co-workers. If you resign today, and they're not aware, then your work gets shuffled to them, starting today, because you resigned.

I understand the policy, and it probably makes sense in many ways. However, I've also seen this work when the policy was that you'd work out your two weeks.

I worked for a prominent insurance company in Ohio for almost 5 years up until last summer. I was in charge of our HR/Payroll system, Company Intranet, document imaging solution, user id management and network access control... I could go on. Bottom line, I had my hands in a lot of pies with privileged access to all. The company was becoming very strict in documenting everything, locking down permissions, etc. Prior to me turning in my notice (I knew about a month before that I would be leaving), I started working on all of my documentation, training my counterpart and making sure the company would be ready for me to leave. I thoroughly expected that when I turned in my notice, once the CIO got wind of it, he'd ask me to leave. No such luck.

They did in fact want me to stay for the two weeks and continue to train and document procedures and processes. I find it odd because I know the CIO was gunning for me to leave anyway because I was unhappy. With as much access as I had, I could have done some massive damage. But I didn't. I played the honesty card and kept my word that I'd do my best to help prepare everyone for the day when I wouldn't be around.

Bottom line, I think companies SHOULD ask an IT employee to leave when they put in a notice. I have two beliefs that back this up.
1. There should be at least some cross training going on so someone could potentially fill a role temporarily along with adequate system documentation.
2. If the employee is putting in their notice, it means they don't want to work for you anymore and could potentially hurt the company by staying. Especially if they're going to work for another company in the same industry.

Just my 2 cents


The distance between genius and insanity is measured only by success.
