However, let's think for a moment that the employee leaving is not disgruntled at all:
- Relationship with direct line manager is good. Relationship with relevant execs is also good.
- Reached a good agreement regarding notice period and end date.
- Work/tasks during notice period were fair.
- The employee leaving even helped the company finding a replacement.
Let's also assume that the employee already has a new contract signed, and references have been already provided some time ago.
In a situation like this, would it make sense to provide honest (negative) feedback explaining the reasons for leaving? Things like:
- Lack of investment in some areas of the business.
- Low salaries compared to market.
- Under-staffed teams in core areas.
- Old/outdated technology.
Assuming a large company (> 1k employees) and UK based (if relevant, although it shouldn't be different in the US).
I am specially interested in answers from the point of view of the departing employee - although clear benefits for the company are also of interest here (other than obscure things such as using the exit interview time for blocking the network accounts of the employee...).
