When to let the team know I'm quitting?

The company, PM, and team lead already knows, but the rest of the team doesn't know I'm leaving at the end of next week. They're leaving it up to me on when to announce it to the rest of the team. Is there a standard practice on when is a good timing to let the rest of your team know that you're quitting?

5 days before you leave is the best.

Some wil get jealous and give you more work before leaving. Or nobody wants to help you on your last few days.

let the team know a few days before, as mentioned earlier 5 days at the least. you may not want to tell anyone but don't burn bridges. you never know when you will come across someone you've worked with later on in life (when searching for a job, interviewing, etc).

Sounds a lot like public practice. The fake smiles and farewell handshakes. It's amazing how many people actually stay in touch when you leave practice (none).

OP - this is role specific, time with the company, and may also relate to the company you're going to. If you're going to a competitor or someone within their supply chain, you probably want to give a good 2 weeks notice (outside of your specific team).

you are under no obligation to tell them and they probably wouldn't care anyway.
