Re: How much notice did you give to ER?

I gave 6 months notice that I did not wish to serve as managing partner of my firm anymore. Three months later I told my board that I wanted to go part time once my term was up as managing partner. We spent three months negotiating a compensation arrangement.

I just gave a mid year report to the managing partner about how my part time arrangement is going and indicated I wish to work (meaning bill) even less hours. We will see how it is received. Current plan is probably to stay to mid year next year. I will need a number of months to phase out. I have a lateral hire new associate working with me, which will help the phase out.

My goal is for all to go smooth for clients and firm, and if Mr. Apocalypse is right and all goes to heck, I can keep plugging along here indefinately. But I hope to be out by next May or June.

Billable hours so far this month: 42.

Re: How much notice did you give to ER?

Five months, due to the window that my employer identified for retirement dates.* That is, I'm working the maximum amount that I can before the early-out options closes.*

There won't be much to transition because the department that we oversea has been contracted out.* I don't see that the government is really going to save anything in the long run, but contracting out fits with the philosophy of the administration.*

John

I wasn't getting paychecks......I was getting health insurance benefits. I just didn't know it.

Re: How much notice did you give to ER?

Whether it was to ER or just to change jobs, I figured that the amount of notice I would give depended on how much I trusted my management. When I trusted them not to take offense and retaliate in some way, I gave about a months notice. When I did not trust them, I gave two weeks. More than a month seems pretty risky to me. Imagine, for example, that it is late February 2000. You give two months notice that you are going to ER and find by late April that your net worth is way down and dropping fast. You may think that staying around -- at least until the economy stabilizes -- will allow you to sleep better at night, but you've already given notice, trained your replacement and collected the gold watch.
