Dear Experts, I gave work my 2 month notice last week. It was initially approved by my manager but now she is forcefully requesting I extend my notice by one month. How should I react? Here is how our CAREEREALISM-Approved Experts answered this question on Twitter: Q#489 If they need more of your time, feel free to propose contract work at a reasonable rate. (@gradversity) Q#489 2 month notice is PLENTY. Offer to help find/train your replacement to ease transition. (@beneubanks) Q#489 Go out your terms, know what they are. If 2 weeks is standard, that's your terms. Suit up and show until your last day! (@DeborahShane) Q#489 2 months notice is a lot! Try to leave on good terms, but on YOUR terms. Difficult to work when on way out. (@keppie_careers) Q#489 If you WANT to accommodate, do. BUT you control your life & unless under contract leave on your schedule, may mean earlier too.

The real problem stands in the fact that the effective manager does need to have some traits. Failure to have them will lead to failure for the entire company.
