What is the standard amount of time given when resigning from a senior management position?

Senior management? We don't have posters that low on the hierarchy here. Nothing but owners and independently wealthy folks, who are impressively endowed and can throw a football 70 yards.

Sorry for your misfortune. :(

Somebody has to grease the wheels of these financial tanks.

2 weeks and offer to train your replacement. I'll likely be doing the same thing shortly.

Senior Management? I'd say shit on the desk and walk out.

Our company just hired a senior manager that was fired 5 years ago for credit card fraud. I'd say kstater is probably right.

2 weeks is the standard. But I've given 30 days notice twice. You need them for your refrences in the future and it looks good to your future employer. Burning bridges and leaving pissed will bite you in the ass later.

Someone is a senior manager and comes on CP to ask for resignation advice? Are you a senior manager at the gas station on the corner?

Senior management gives notice and then negotiates a time to leave that works for both sides unless a contract spells out specifics.

Nicely stated.

The only professional way.

2 weeks. Depending on where you are going, and how much knowledge they have about said departure, they may even offer to pay out your time.

Offer at least 2 weeks.

That said, don't be surprised if they have security escort you out of the building without a chance to clean up your loose ends.

However much notice the company gives you if they decide to fire you...

I should have stated that the manager is a friend. I work in the F&B industry and it is common practice to give 4-6 weeks. That seemed over kill for a 9-5 business type job.

Thanks

Senior Managers and Directors I've worked with usual gave 30 days notice. SVP level and above can give considerably longer. Depends how long you've been there. If it's less than a year, it can't hurt to offer 30 days but be prepared for them to show your ass the door immediately.

I don't think two weeks is enough. If you're a senior manager you should give 30 days notice and if possible talk with them about what's appropriate. Sometimes longer than 30 days is fine if your position will take a while to replace. Obviously, there may be a compromise if you've got another position waiting for you, but if you leave early it'll usually put some hardship on people that you don't necessarily want to screw over.

This. You stay as long as they need you to or until they aren't actually working actively to get your replacement in.
