I mean if they know you’re leaving, I don’t see the harm, you’ve built a working relationship with them. I have had multiple clients call to chat/wish me well when they were leaving their respective companies for a new opportunity, which meant a lot because they didn’t owe me anything.

They don’t know I’m leaving haha. Manager hasn’t told them yet...

What can you actually do to salvage a project going down in flames?

All the issues are now coming to us. I don’t have the experience to navigate this all alone, and I am not getting the necessary support as all of my managers are swamped with other (to them, more important) issues at the same client.

Hi! I have around 13 months of exp in LTI. My current project assignment gets over by December. And I want to change role after 18 months.
