wtf?! you are not the SVP of finance at Apple. You just give it to HR and that's it.. it's up to you in case you still have some work to do if you want to have a little revenge on your team and do a shitty work and burn bridges or still do your job properly in case it was a good team or might bounce back.

Be definitive. They may to try to counter. Could be mean. Who knows. But the main goal for you is to go into it definitive. You don’t have to tell any details if you don’t want. Let me know if you need a resignation template

You will need to. For the official records

Think through the push back you can receive and have a response ready. You have to be stern. Otherwise, people will try to persuade you that you are making the worst decision of your life. I just dis the same and heard all sorts of promises but a bit too late. And with the massive turnover in my office, my life would have been even more miserable.

Are companies looking to hire more minorities and people who identify as LGBTQ+?
