You don’t owe them anything. If you find an offer you like, then leave. They’ll be able to fill the role. You might put a bad taste in a few peoples mouths, but oh well. An alternative is to tell them you’re frustrated and need X to stay. If you are truly essential and irreplaceable they’ll do what they can to keep you.

What makes you want to leave? Are there things that you can control or ask for support/change on? If you really want to leave, go for it! You gotta do what’s best for you. I’d recommend you set up a transition plan that a replacement can follow and that would help you preserve the relationship on your way out. I hope things get better for you, regardless of whether you stay or leave!

I am due to take 2 weeks parental leave sometime in the next month and have an offer lined up. Is it better to tell the new place I would prefer to push my start date to take my leave and join two weeks after (accounting for 2 weeks of notice when I get back)? Would that be burning a bridge with current firm (taking leave and giving notice as soon as I am back)? I want to avoid losing 2 weeks of salary during that time if I can.
