This is a continuation from my previous post:
I am leaving soon for a new opportunity. Should I mention my co-worker's deficiency to our manager as I leave?
A little background (for those of you who don't want to read the whole story):
- I have 2 full SDLC projects
- I have a deficient colleague
- I am moving abroad for a new job
I have resigned and am going to finish work early January next year. Today my manager approached me to ask about my projects' progress.
The progress is not very good since I need to handle both projects (1 of the project is for 2 different OS) and there is no one to help me (although I work every day including weekends and nights). I am also pessimistic about whether I can finish these projects before my last day.
My manager said that he wants me to help the project although after I will be leaving in January (from abroad?!). Then, he kind of indirectly blames me for leaving during the projects. He said that I knew that I will resign before the projects began (although I didn't know) and if the projects won't finish before my resignation, our company management will hunt me!
Actually I have given 2 months notice instead of 1 month (which is the company's rule)
How do I deal with my boss? I believe my case is a bit unique since I have a colleague that should help me with my work but is not helpful at all in these projects.
It seems that my manager's point of view is coding is an easy task, maybe because he is from product background (similar to IBM's, Microsoft's products, if you guys know) that need installation and configuration only.
My manager also said to think about what he said. though I am not sure what he intends to convey.
Additional per 4th December 2015:
Hope this will be a useful information, I am not sure whether my manager has found my replacement, but he should tell me if he has, and up to today, he hasn't spoken any to me. I also have tried to look for someone to fill my position with no luck. Moreover, in my country, it is quite rare for my position and somehow, it is very hard to find someone. So, maybe this is the reason my manager acted like that.
Amount of hours - off hours (As asked by tripleee):
I can say that on weekday I can work 3-4 hours after office hours and 4-6 hours on weekend.
