My current company has no idea I'm looking for other opportunities and quite honestly, I think they'd be blindsided if I resigned, mostly because this is the type of company where people stay for 10+ years and I am the newest hire, at three years "old" with them.
During my interview process with another company over the past month, my current employer gave me a raise. They were behind on annual reviews, so it appeared in my check before they could actually review me. My official review is scheduled for today, where I will basically learn why they decided to give me a raise, etc. I'm expecting it to be a positive review, but my boss has already mentioned she wants to hear my "issues and concerns," as well.
I have many, many issues, but the majority are not ones that they can fix for me (without changing the nature of the position I was hired for), hence the job search.
If there is a strong likelihood I will be handing in my resignation within a week, how should I handle today's review? Should I make my unhappiness known, or keep my ('unfixable') issues to myself, keeping in mind that I might not be resigning in a week and I could have to stay a while longer until I find something else?
My guess is there's a fine line between constructive criticism and the fact that constructive criticism has already been provided and essentially ignored, which largely the reason that I'm seeking other opportunities. My fear is that if I pretend everything is fine and then resign in a week, they may feel deceived and I don't want that.
