My annual review is next week, but I intended to quit my job this week. Should I wait until the review to tell my boss or just go through with it this week?
I've decided to quit mainly because of family commitments. My mother recently passed away and I'm split between my father's and my apartment dealing with probate matters. I've decided to go back to school and I don't have time to handle the estate stuff, never mind make time to finish an application. I've recently found a remote gig that will give me more flexibility and time to focus on myself. To be honest, I've been planning to quit for weeks and I'm ready to leave tomorrow.
I'm expecting to hear that I'm getting a raise in my review and that I've done a fairly good job. My manager is more big picture and generally isn't that harsh, because our team does mostly self-guided projects. I'm nervous about quitting mostly because I do genuinely love my job and the people I work with. My manager was very supportive when I lost my mom and gave me more extra time off to deal with the funeral. Basically, I know it's time to go but I'm sad about it and don't want to make things more awkward before I go.
