Not fired but I dream of saying “I quit” to my team lead daily

Maybe it's not included in your employment/ job offer. Typically directors and above (from what I recall) have it as part of their offer letter.

I did, got severance and unemployment, ended up with a better job making more money with fewer hours. 10/10 would recommend.

@Tax1 it was mostly valid with a sprinkling of budget cuts. My performance slipped due to COVID and endless wfh, then had some pandemic related family issues that further impacted my performance. Management seemed like they would have been more willing to work through it if we weren’t in a pandemic, but honestly I was miserable and already looking for an out.

Also I’ve had a coworker be asked to “resign” instead of get fired because they said it would look better to potential employers. 100% let them fire you if it comes to that so they can’t screw you out of unemployment

When it’s really stressful, honestly yeah sometimes. But it’s like a cycle because once you want to get fired, you stop caring. When you stop caring, stress goes down. Then it repeats

If you really hate your job, then get another one which you like more. Life is too short to hate your job every day. We all have off days but they normally pass.

Yes because I’d have time and motivation to update my resume and find a better job.

I have two opportunities I’m considering. One that’s a director position with a large holding company doing what I do now. The second is a well known vendor DSP. Both similar in building teams and bringing partners up. Both pay is similar. But going vendor side (not sales) would that hinder my path on the media/agency side if I were to take it? Director at large ad Agency or Director at Vendor DSP.
