Today I'm resigning from a company I've worked at for over 8 years. What should I put in my resignation letter? Overall they were good to work for but they seriously underpay. They try to make up for it with ridiculous titles but I'm more interested in getting paid for my value to the organization.
Maybe mention as nicely as possible that pay is the main reason you are moving on and that overall you enjoyed working there. They may try to give you a raise if they like you.
Chief of the beef product rotator area?
You don't need to send a message. Just resign and move on.
Have you already accepted a position elsewhere? Would you stay with the company if you were given a raise? If the answers are "no" and "yes" then go to your boss and tell him - might be able to finagle a raise out of it. If the answers aren't no and yes, then just give your two weeks, work hard, don't burn any bridges, and move on.
Poop on a piece of paper on your bosses desk.

It is ALWAYS a great day to be a Spartan!!!!
It seems like they paid you adequately enough if you were willing to stick around for 8 years...just wish them well and tell them thanks for the opportunity.
Sharpie 'I need a raise' all over your body then run around naked.
You're resigning today? And you haven't written your resignation letter yet? And, you're coming here for tips?
This all seems very plausible.

Let me get this down, $100 million. Oh wait, I have a better idea. Instead of $100 million, how about I send you a hobo's dick cheese?
Dear Mr. Boss,
Sincerely (and I mean sincerely)

I heard that if you include the phrase "choke on a bag of sweaty cocks," they have to give you another 4 weeks of severance pay.
This. Sweet and Simple.

Already have a new position lined up with a company that gave me everything I asked for. It's a much larger company with which I think will have more opportunities down the road. My current company tried to put something together but it isn't anything I'm interested in. It's just time to move on.
I'm going with.
Keep it short & sweet. An exit interview is where you give detail.
Also, be prepared for them to let you go immediately, the moment you hand them that letter you have technically quit and they don't have to give you two weeks.
Anyone else seeing people being let go immediately more and more after putting in two weeks?
Never burn any bridges - you never know when a contact/former employer will be needed again.
Do companies actually do those?
Yes, I've had one. It was incredibly awkward because they were basically baiting me to trash my previous boss which I didn't really want to do.
A previous employer wanted me to do an exit interview, and I told them no thanks. HR wasn't happy but it's not my job to help them make their company better after I am already leaving.
yeah they always seemed like a strange thing....why, after I choose to leave, are you interested in my thoughts.
Sometimes a job runs its course and then it's time to move on. Be gracious and brief.
This is really all they want to know, whether or not the supervisor is a problem.
