Resigned and they set up a meeting to get me to stay. I dial in have been waiting for over 20 minutes. Burning bridges now. 🔥

Lol @D2 why? Cus I don't feel bad for someone who didn't get a pity party on the way out? When I left Deloitte I didn't get any special treatment and you don't see me on here complaining. I scheduled time with the people that had been influential on my career and I made sure to follow up with them. It's not their responsibility to cater to your needs when you are the one leaving. Sorry if my blunt attitude offends your feelings of entitlement but I don't think anyone deserves any special treatment.

I have to say I agree somewhat with A8. I believe in the fact that everyone is replaceable. I was taught that by one of my managers and this rule applies for not just consulting but all companies. It's on YOU to ask for changes when you are not happy with things. That 4 months of rescheduling issues that you spoke of OP, I went through the something similar with my CC. After the third reschedule, I just sent a respectable email saying let's play it by ear for the meeting setul but I'm really in need of some advice because I feel like I'm in a tough spot because of so and so reason. He made time for me the next day since he thought initially it was going to be a regular follow up meeting. To me it doesn't sound like you ever conveyed via email your dissatisfaction with the company to him/her. At a higher level though, you are right OP it was rude for him to keep rescheduling the meetings but again it's on you to look at a different option and say fuck it I'm just going to change my CC to someone that I know will care about my career. The fact that you got a call from the MD tells me that you are a hard worker, smart and someone who will get places in life, but here is my last thought on that. You showed patience by staying on the calls for 20 mins but wherever you go next I'd advise you show a little more patience. Your about to leave and you think the organization and leadership sucks then why are you getting pissed about the meeting not happening? This should be expected by you. Your time from now until you walk out the door should now be I don't give a flying fuck let's close this out and get some beers. If they give you an offer they give you an offer if they don't they don't. It's not like your time for the next few weeks is that precious at work anymore so don't get pissed and burn bridges. Life is a funny thing OP. The organization you hate right now might seem like the best place to work when you go elsewhere and you might want to come back. Just saying because I've seen it happen. Anyway OP, take care and wish you well in your future endeavors.

Wow @A8 what a horrible response.
OP is a person, who has feelings and deserves respect. If you don't care someone is leaving. Don't reach out - and then not show up to the session you organised. I think most normal people would be frustrated by that!

.This whole process has been indicative of why I need to get the fuck out of here and why I don't ever want to come back.

Resigned over email on Friday after CC canceled out meeting four months in a row. CC emailed asking to talk that same day. No call.

Spoke to CC on Monday, first convo in four months. Says they are surprised I'm unhappy. Um... because telepathy totally works.

Later on Monday MD emails me asking to talk. Tell him my availability, no response. Tuesday get an apology that forgot to schedule the meeting. Meeting scheduled for this morning. On phone for 10 mins, send him email asking if meeting is still happening. No response. Hang up at 20 min mark and send another email. Get ping that they are stuck at client and wants to reschedule.

At this point I don't know if I can safely hold my temper so it might not be safe or good to talk to anyone right now. Seriously, I'm going to get a flame thrower and burn all this shit down.

^ word. I am kidding though. As much as you don't want to, join the call. Careers are a long game and like others mentioned, you never know what or who you'll be working with later on. Not necessarily boomeranging back either. But do bring up the lack of professionalism during your exit interview.

I swear to God I now have an ulcer. I was asked to repeat everything I'd already told the PM, CC and two Senior Managers. MD thanked me for my patience said he'd get back to me. So no reason to stay or counter given. Thank you for an emotionally draining exit ACN.

A8 , it's not about being entitled, it is about being respected as a professional. Seems like you don't understand professionalism

@A8, OP is not complaining because he wanted to talk to the MD and they aren't giving him special treatment. He is complaining because the MD requested the meeting and then didn't join twice. OP wanted to just quit in peace. The MD wanted the meeting. If you request a meeting, show up to it. If the MD didn't care about OP quitting, then he shouldn't have requested a meeting to begin with.

I would like to have left respecting everyone I'd worked with and with goodwill towards the practice and the company. I never expected any conversation with anyone. Would have been happy to finish up the deliverables, focus on transitioning as best as possible. I'd told them I'd give them four weeks to properly close things but as A1 said, I need to muster some self-respect and just leave. It's clear they don't care about me as an individual and I need to stop caring about them and their project as well.

Wow A8- and how was your day? Bust have bad since you got out of bed. If your point is correct leadership should never have set up the call. They wanted the discussion, they need to follow through or OP can complain as much as they like. Get some rest A8.

M1 is speaking truth. Nothing to gain by going off. Give constructive feedback during your exit interview and get out. Seen the whole bridge burning thing backfire in a number of creative and unforeseen ways.
