This question already has an answer here:
I started my job two weeks ago and knew from day 1 it was a bad fit. So disorganized and nothing like the interviews. Staying here would be like going backwards 5 years in my experience. I work in IT. Current boss is meek and the company is small and not very well versed. I would have to do a LOT of work to get them aligned with industry best practices and I just don't have the motivation to.
Funny, the first week I received a job offer from another company that I really liked and seemed like a better fit. Bigger company, better benefits, and more aligned work. (even a bit better money). I thought about it and compared where I would be there vs current place and decided to accept the other offer and quit current place.
I would like to turn in my resignation tomorrow. My boss works remotely and is not in the office. I really REALLY have not learned much nor contributed much to the team or company in the two weeks here.
Honestly, I would like to say my last day is Friday in the letter. I would like to have some time off between this job and new job and spend it with kids and relax. Since I have a new job lined up (that's firm), I don't really care about burning the bridge nor would I list it on my resume.
In this situation, is it a) OK to resign without notice and b) better to put reason as bad fit or better fit elsewhere? It's not like I've been there a long time, developed relationships and contributed anything. I haven't done much in the time I'm here and no one seems to want to train or inform me of anything. I would simply be wasting their money staying for two weeks.
I am in US at an at-will company/state. I am in the probationary/trial period, which allows with or without notice.
