I was vague when I left my last job.  I used my husband getting a job across the country as an excuse when I really was already planning on leaving that job if I found something else.  I didn’t see why I would want to bring up that it made me miserable though.

@Linz1231: I would put it in writing and I would be vague. You don’t want to burn bridges if you don;t have to. Plus if another employer down the road calls them off of your resume you don’t want to give them any reason to say anything about you that would be unflattering.

I don’t think it would hurt to let them know.  I’m sure they would want to know about inappropriate things going on if they aren’t aware.

I don’t think so.  You don’t want to have to deal with additional drama!

@Linz1231: I agree, it’s not easy at all!  My dad takes a new job every few years, I don’t know how he does it!

Oh I know!  Leaving jobs sucks… I had to put in a 2 week notice at a daycare when I got offered a public school teaching job… that sucked because I techinically gave a month when I had to ask for time off to go interview, since interviewing after work wasn’t an option.  Awkward.

I would definitely tell them about the inappropriate things happening.  Maybe bring it up like, “since I’ve benefitted so much from working here, I am sad to leave, but this new position will work better for me in my current circumstances.  However, I value this company a lot and therefore I think you should also be aware that….”

Something like that will come across like you are leaving on a good note totally unrelated to what’s going on.  What kind of work are you going to be doing?

@Linz1231: When I left my last job I was almost painfully honest with them. I had worked there for 2 years and most of that was at a different location but after moving to a different state I realized the lack of concern they had for the company. The owner of the company was the nicest person I had ever met and I had been told by my boss that he and his boss often lied to the owner to make their job easier. When I resigned I emailed my letter to all three to make sure the owner wasn’t lied to again. I’d be honest, that way something may be able to be done about everything that you are unhappy with.
