I was approached by former colleagues to join a different company. Few people from this company were former employees of my current company, and they still maintain friendship with the people I work with.
I was offered a position in this new company, and I rejected it at first, however they countered couple of times, and I finally accepted their offer.
The problem is, during this period rumors has started between the lower rank employees at my current work place that I'm leaving even before I accepted offer; it makes me uncomfortable because I have not told my team or, more importantly, current boss yet. I would hate to know that this information gets to my boss before I am able to have a conversation with him. While I am sure there was no ill intent, I know that these rumors were started by a member of the new company who was a former co-worker. This person is a lower rank employee who is going to be working in my group, and probably under me.
Should I email the new company and call her out? or leave it as is?I will officially be resigning tomorrow, and I don't want create any tension in the new work place, but I don't want to passive either!
