Give notice on 8/16.

Yeah they might just let you go before the vacation if you give notice now. I’d wait until after.

Official notice isn't necessary, you can quit whenever you want. But the nice thing to do is let your teams know as much ahead as time as you can.

After … you don’t want any drama when you are going on vacation.

Thank you all. That’s what I was thinking as well but wanted a sanity check

Don’t be surprised if they cut you loose a week early or even after you give notice though. Especially since you are giving notice right after your return. I still think that makes the most sense but just something to be prepared for.

I don't think anyone cares if your manager is good with your last date. Depends on how much transition you need to do .. you can leave in a week if you want to ..

He tells me about everything he does honestly but I can’t help but feel replaced.

I want to go for sanity reasons, but feel like it seems foolish too. What would y’all do? Just wait and see?
