Windows 10 Exit Interview Questions for Software Engineers


New Member
I am a software engineer and I am about to have an exit interview with my company. I am looking for some advice on what questions I should ask. I have found a list of common exit interview questions and answers online:

  • Why did you decide to leave the company?
  • What were your expectations for the job? Were they met?
  • Have you received constructive feedback that helped you improve?
  • If you were asked to describe the overall management style of the organization, what would you say?
  • Was your contribution adequately recognized by management? If not, what can be done to enhance recognition?
  • Is there anything you find difficult to understand about the company's policies? What can the firm do to make them more clear?
  • Do you have any suggestions for how the company can improve?
I would appreciate any advice you can give me. Thank you!

4. Can you share any experiences where you felt your ideas or suggestions were not taken seriously? How could the company foster a more inclusive and collaborative environment?
5. Were you provided with the necessary resources and tools to effectively perform your job? If not, what specific resources or tools could have been helpful?
6. How was communication within the organization? Did you feel informed and involved in decision-making processes?
7. Can you give feedback on the support you received from your immediate supervisor or manager? Were there any aspects of their leadership style that could be improved?
8. Did you feel that you were part of a cohesive team? Were there any challenges in collaborating with colleagues?
