Advice on how to ask to roll off a project that is affecting your mental well being?

As stupid as that sounds, but: ‘Can we please talk about options to roll me off this project, I think it might be affecting my mental well-being’. If you do not have someone to confide in your firm to say that to, who will then take some pressure off you by helping you to get out of there cleanly, then say it to a mental health professional, who will write you a sick-note. Don’t drag it out too long please, that never really ends well.

In my experience with EY, if you put in your resignation, they will offer you pick of the lot to stay. In all seriousness, be honest with your MD. EY care’s about their employees more than you might realize now. You have to speak up bc nobody reads your mind. What department?

The fear is that I’m ingrained in the work so i fee like I am screwing over the team and project

They’ll survive, and you’ll do a good job of providing transition materials for whoever follows you

You are a human and therefore your number 1 and only responsibility! If you have been pushed to the point of posting on here, your work is, or will soon be, impacted. That company is huge and can backfill you in a snap. I quit for this reason and spent my last 2 weeks training my backfill. Be honest. EY genuinely cares. It is an amazing company. Keep moving up to the next level with your request until action is taken. I’m actually sad I turned down all of the accommodations offered when I left.

Need advice for resigning while on bench. I already have a start date with the new employer. Should I do a traditional two week notice or give <=1 week notice instead? My goal is to not burn bridges, but I also don’t want to get let go on the spot since I have nothing to “wrap up” besides HR tasks. I’ve read on here that sometimes they will let you go day of and pay you out for two weeks but I don’t see why any firm would do that for somebody not currently performing billable work...
