I’m planning to leave my firm end of the month. However, I recently found out that I’m gonna be staffed as one of the seniors on a client going forward.

If you are 100% certain you are leaving, you might as well tell them now. They can find someone else foe their engagement and they don't have to waste any few weeks. If you are not 100% sure, keep your mouth shut until you are. Either way, don't feel too bad. Its just business

Yeah, that’s why I don’t wanna say anything yet. My SM and I have a call in 2 weeks to discuss my new role on the team, but by that time, I will already have submitted my notice. So I think I’ll just need to tell him on that call.

What firm at are you at now and what kind of role are you taking? If you’re certain you’re leaving, could help to explain why

I would ask yourself why you had planned to leave at the end of the month? It seems like you would have had a good reason for that and that you had been on other teams that were not "super nice and supportive." Have you done anything to signal that you might be leaving that may have motivated your firm to staff you on this engagement? Are they just trying to keep you around for as long as they can and so they are moving you to an engagement w/ "supportive" management? I wouldn't feel bad at all about the turnover--that is the firm's fault (if not desire), and I wouldn't stay just b/c you you can't feel bad for the SM in this situation? The SM has to manage his or her own career and so do you.
