Using a throwaway as my real account has my real name.
I’m a dev who got declined for a promotion on Friday from intermediate to senior and got the standard “try again in 3 months” Everyone basically knows that I didn’t get it as another colleague got his and everyone knows we both applied.
I’m the kind of person to apply to everyone when I want a promotion, not just my own company. I got another offer from a different tech company for the promotion and they want to know how soon I can start. At this point, I don’t give a crap about my current company anymore and am somewhat embarrassed to be seen there.
I don’t have anything at my desk of significant value, don’t care anymore if the sprint is blown, etc. I already remoted in to delete any sensitive files and passwords from the browser.
Other than blowing up a managerial reference, is there any consequence to just never being heard from again? I can get a good reference from a co-worker who left a month ago. Happy to move on immediately.
The other main long term consequence I can see is that I have never been promoted internally (I’ve never applied for a promotion internally without applying elsewhere and “elsewhere” is less cautious). I’m not sure if this is ever detected by recruiters. I spend 1-3 years in most places, so the tenures aren’t bad, but at this moment I don’t care. The new company wants me. The old one doesn’t.
It is Tuesday not Monday as we have flex days.
