Advice needed: I just received an offer today and finally breaking out of big4! I intend to accept the offer, but unsure about how to time my resignation. My target last day would be the second week of Feb but I’m conscious that this would mean almost 1 month of early notice. I’m hoping this will give me an excuse to dodge new assignments and avoid wasting everyone’s time with things like training, coaching, etc. and focus on transition and wrapping up my current projects. Any downsides to this?

Has anyone been “layered” at work? How did you deal with that? I’ve been codirecting a team with another director who specializes in comms, and today I learned she’s been promoted to VP, overseeing marketing, comms, and another department. I have been reporting directly to the President as the most senior person in my area, and I’ve been assured it’s not performance related since I’ve been hitting all my goals and crushing it across the board - but this feels like a demotion.
