I am going to give notice after my parental leave ends. I am on parental leave and got a good job offer . I cannot tell my manager immediately because I am stuck in India for visa stamping. Once back to US I will give the notice. Will it look very bad on me to give notice after parental leave . How to avoid burning the bridge in such a case , my manager is a great guy
Will it look very bad on me to give notice after parental leave
Yes it might look bad. It can look like you're using their company for visa reasons.
That said it's perfectly ok to hand in your notice after your parental leave. There's no reason for any bridge burning, or for anyone to take it personally, it's just a career decision. So long as you hand in the contracted notice you're fine.
