Have an engagement planning meeting on Wednesday but I’m also expecting a job offer in the coming days. I feel kind of guilty knowing the whole planning is going to be on the assumption that I’m involved and then I’ll be putting in my 2 weeks within a day or 2. How bad of an idea would it be to let the manager know beforehand that I’m 99% leaving?

Do not tell anyone until is official. Work is always planned on who is there, they will figure it out once you are gone.

There are no absolutes in life besides death and taxes. Pretend nothing has changed until you have a written offer and IMO have cleared background check.

I agree with all these posts.
I waited until background check was done before putting notice. It ate into my plans to have some time off between jobs, but it's better to be safe than sorry in this situation.
What would happen if offer is not extended to you? If it's not at all what you expected? If something happens and you don't clear background check?

You don't put notice when you start job hunting, why would you after some good interviews?

To put it into perspective, do you think they tell people that they plan on letting them go? No, they're just out with it when it happens (usually).

I wouldn’t until I have offer in hand, signed and background check clears. Assuming this is a year-end audit in which they’ll have plenty of time to find a replacement.

Don't tell them. The planning has to happen regardless.

Is there a non-confrontational way to let a senior know that sitting on documents isn’t okay and they need to pull their weight? Senior won’t even acknowledge that they have been slow to review and sign off on documents. Instead, they throw the juniors on the team. I am a mid-level and know that the senior is the real hold-up.

Advice needed! I have been hustling for months. My partner and I have been offered two good freelance jobs (1-2 months). Both from agencies that we’ve been going back and forth with about other opportunities that fell through.

What do you do with a Staff with ~1 year exp that legit won’t work. For example, you give them a simple task at 10am that should take 3 hours max, they ignore your check-in messages and then ask if they can give it you in the morning. They never ask questions. Morning comes and they still didn’t do it. When they finally do it, it is riddled with errors and clearly shows they didn’t try. Working under tight deadlines, this staff is killing me as I cannot rely on them at all. What would you do?
