Should I feel guilty for handing in my notice? Watch
That said, I’m due to move on from the company, after working there for 10 years.
I’ve had a very lousy time in the last year, with my manager being horrible alongside a colleague who has been scheming behind my back. I think I will be giving in my notice the week after next, as I’ve got a job offer. I’m looking forward to the change.
Part of me feels bad, as more colleagues are due to leave in April and May. One guy is moving to a different city and two girls are off on mat leave. This has coincided with me deciding to leave as I’ve been treated badly and also got given a bad review by my manager at the end of last year.
I think the reason I feel bad is because I’m not used to handing in my notice, but logically it makes sense for me to go, given the bad treatment I’ve received.
Consider this: if they were to make you redundant, they probably wouldn't give you a second thought (given how business works).
If you leaving is part of a wider exodus, then the company need to consider why. No point feeling sorry for a business.
