Tomorrow I will be completing my last day at my current organization (I had placed a two week notice). I am writing a "good bye" email to send to some friends and mentors that I've made over the time I was here. The email will be very specific, for example:
Dan Foo, thanks for all the mentoring you've provided.
Fan Doo, thanks for making the hard times easier to deal with.
And so on. I have decided to not include a manager and a mentor due to the fact that it was a very toxic environment and relationship.
Once I placed my two week notice, these individuals became less toxic. I considered including them in this email but I can't seem to think of good things.
Another thing, the people that I will include in this email are people I don't mind being friends with down the line. The toxic manager and toxic mentor are people that I would never want to be friends with. I have made sure to end our professional relationship in good terms.
I am not sure if not including them in this email is the correct move. Should I just not send an email out? Should I send an email to each person alone (as opposed to one email for all)? Should I include the toxic individuals anyway? Or should I send out the email how I want (no negativity, just thanking people) to the people I want?
UPDATE: Thank you all for opening my eyes and your time. I said goodbye in person to the people that are closest to me (of which I was able to find). The ones that I didn't find, I sent an email to each individual separately.
