I have had one job all my life (30+ years) but am about to embark on a new career in 6 months. When I was talking with my sister about it she asked me why was I giving my company so much notice ( I gave them 1 year notice with a promise to give them a firm 90 day notice.) I told her as the #3 in a small company of about 300 employees I felt I owed it to the owner who has given me so much through the years. She said--- every paycheck you are even. You do not owe your boss anymore than that! (She has worked at many Fortune 500 companies throughout her career). I was blown away.... so I was just wondering what others thought.
