Brewer12345, best of luck in the new spot!

My exit interview was at the same time I was being laid off (voluntarily took a package). My boss had come from the Megacorp that had taken my team over and since I was being laid off under my previous companies plan, had no idea how to fill out the paperwork. I did it myself and then she signed everything. She did thank me for taking care of the paperwork. All in all, pretty painless and I was sure it was done right.

Good luck on the new job.

I avoided large organizations for 25 years, except for stints as an independent contractor. Finally had to join megacorp, and it has been an interesting 5 years. I've had 5 different managers, which is somewhat unusual, and have one great lesson to pass on. If it all possible, pick a manager, not a job.

My 5th manager (for 1.5 years) has made a great difference in how I feel about the job. Also, I may meet with him once or twice a month, but email and text on a regular basis. I really understand how to do work, and don't need micro-managing. I also don't need the pressure which accompanies a 10-25% downsizing, and the boss realizes that. So he shares background information. Knowing about possible growth opportunities keeps me sane.

It sounds like your new boss will have many of the same qualities as mine.

Congrats, brewer. HOpe your move goes smoothly, your house sells quickly, and that the new place is a bit more sane and gives you better compensation and higher quality of life as you make the final push to FI and ER.
