‘Flabbergasted’: Agency employees are quitting without two weeks’ notice

An insights manager at an independent ad agency on the West Coast quit earlier this year after nearly five years working at the company. Her final day? The following one.

“Bottom line: She didn’t think she needed to [give more notice than a day],” wrote the agency’s head of talent in an email. “We were flabbergasted at her decision.”

Over the last six months, this full-service independent agency has seen three other employees give less than two weeks’ notice when leaving.
