I was a DoD employee and gave my boss one years notice in the hope that they would find someone I could train. A year later I retired on CSRS and they hired a replacement a month later. Got lots of phone calls for help for a few weeks.

In my management consulting career, I used to include the effort to recruit my replacement in the scope of work. Although the decision was theirs, the candidates were mine.

When I was hired by CurrentCo, I was asked to give my then-employer (at which I had worked for many years) the minimum possible notice, so that I could start working here ASAP.

During my time at CurrentCo, I have received almost no briefings regarding new (to me) assignments, and have never received anything approaching written instructions or summaries. Essentially, I always have to figure out everything from scratch, even when much work has already been performed by other people.

When it is time for me to leave, my notice period will be in accordance with the corporate culture reflected above.

What is this phrase "buy out" of which you speak?

In my case it was a five years bonus to the rule of 80 so that it became the rule of 75 for one year. It enabled me to retire at reduced pension at age 49.

In my case even though I was 54, my pension was calculated as if I was 62, i.e. the company kicked in the extra to the pension fund, plus paid health care.

Given the state of the US auto industry, the mere fact that I'm still drawing this pension and health benefits is a miracle. No, my company did not get a government bailout.

In ancient times it was just called "I will pay you to go away and never come back".
