Last day at firm tomorrow & project manager hasn’t told client I’m leaving the firm. The client loves me & calls me “the brains”. Manager has always been rude to me. Is he throwing me under the bus?

So since you are leaving say goodbye and when they act surprised you can say you thought they knew. You are in the clear

Probably. Why haven’t you told the client yourself? They would need to be in the loop on your transition plan.

I’d definitely tell the client goodbye and how
Much you enjoyed working with them, and if the manager hasn’t told them you can say “gosh, s/he said s/he was going to communicate to you directly, sorry!” Agree you are in the clear

I'd tell them today. You don't owe the pm anything. You are leaving.

Why do u feel you are being thrown under the bus? Your manager will face the consequences of clients reaction. The person is being short sighted.

PM have asked me to let him manage the message. He’s a micromanager. I transitioned to another resource this week but the client hasn’t been made aware yet.

Agree with everyone else. Definitely tell the client and say your formal goodbyes. If the client is going to be surprised then be very professional and present them with the transition plan. If they are confused defer those questions to the pm who was supposed to pass along the message that you’re leaving. It’s there problem at this point and not yours.

Tell the client, but do so tactfully and with discretion.

Hello Folks,
Can you pls advise on which company to go for.
R-Systems : They are providing WFH + clarity on the project and team for which I’ll be working upon.
CTS : No clarity as of now, only thing I am aware is that I’m a part of full stack community.
HCL : Some clarity on the project but less package than other two.
R-Systems and CTS are giving same CTC.

How do I change I communicate that I want direct feedback?
