  • The best management strategy is encouraging employees to be open about next steps in their career, according to top tech companies like Netflix and LinkedIn.
  • Executives at these companies have said publicly that they have no problem with employees interviewing for other jobs — in fact, they sometimes want to help them with the process.
  • Some research suggests that employee departures can bolster the company’s and the manager’s image, if the employees leave for high-status competitors.

Interviewing for a job while you have another job can be tricky — often you end up lying to your current employer about why you’re late to work or stuffing a suit jacket under your desk so no one asks why you look so spiffy today.

And yet if you ask executives at some top tech companies, they’ll tell you this whole process is ridiculous.
