I have just said to my boss that I'll severance on next month. I and him had a big argument yesterday. Then, I think that I shouldn't work here more. He accepted my suggestion. However, he begins to look for my old faults to say (almost faults are from his mind! All people said that they was not my faults totally). I feel very uncomfortable. I should leave here as soon as possible? What could I do in this situation?

I think that as soon as a person feels uncomfortable working in the office where he is employed at then he should start looking for a new job. One can never be able to perform well if there are issues that keep on coming between the boss or the work itself.

I think you and your boss don't see eye to eye then you are in a real tough situation. I think if there are other options available go for them. But otherwise if you still need to keep the job for financial security, then it might be worthwhile to calm yourselves a bit and try to get back into your boss' good books. Don't get me wrong, I do not mean a$$ licking. What I mean is trying to understand what he needs and trying to cater to that. Cheers! Ram

In most severance cases, it is always better to leave early to avoid the uneasiness and embarrassment of having to share an office with unfriendly parties. But we must follow the rules and regulations for that situation. If your employer can agree to let you go earlier than the stipulated notice required, it is better for all parties involved.

Looks like to me your boss want to fire you, and he don't care if you, leave there or not, because you have been making, many mistake on the job, and he probably wants you gone any way, so if you feel that you should leave, then do so but I hope you have another job line up, so when you lose this job, you will still be working.

hi,.. perhaps you must apply for a new job if you don't mind. leave that company if you are not comfortable in that environment but be sure if you leave you must settle your argument with your boss.

A big argument with your boss, may be the best action you should take now is to leave ASAP; before your boss imagination run wilder and thinking of adding more faults into your resume and work history, blaming every penny loss by the company over the years of your employment on your shoulder. When that happen, it will be a lot more difficult for you to find a new job with any possibility of getting a spotless recommendation letter and your present resume of past work history from him. Obviously his mind is working wonder now from your description while all other people said otherwise.

You should probably leave as soon as possible. Try to make sure you have documentation that shows you did a good job, because it will be hard to get a new job if your old boss is bad-mouthing you.

I know you need the money, so try and stick it out until you find another job that your comfortable in and then quit. Maybe your boss is unstable and the others are uncomfortable to, but you deserve to be somewhere that you can enjoy going to work everyday.

it is natural to have differences of opinion in the workplace. if the argument with the boss was only regarding work (the ways and means of handling the job) then this is just normal. in your case however, things seem to be different. you said that you're going to resign next month. unless your boss talks you out of it, i suggest you stick to your word.

Hi tk, Please don't leave the current job without having one in hand. Its fine that you had a big argument and please understand you already had it and its over. So the next step should be with a little care. I understand your situation but try to get something to do once you leave this work. Getting out of here is ok but you need to take decisions which will be beneficial for you in the long run. Redo the analysis and till you find something else, stick to this job.. best of luck.

wow, Your boss really bad sample for another worker .. I think you should leave as soon as possible .. That's no reason to stay long time with someone who never accept your talent and your loyality to your office .. But first you should get your severance before you leave. That's your boss job to give you severance and don't forget to telling her/him when you get a better job from your office now .. It will make your boss to think what should he/she do before doing that to his/her own staff ..

I will leave this company as soon as possible. Anyway, the argument happened, so it's difficult for you to get on well with the boss again. Your boss begins to look for your old faults, I think a good boss will not do this. I wish you can find a new job soon, and I have a piece of advice for you, never argue with your boss before you have another chance to change your job. (I know some bosses are not good for us.)

Apply for a new job elsewhere because if this is the kind of working environment you have with your boss, it's best to find another job. It should be less stress for you.

Some bosses sometimes realize the facts, most people do not. That is the organization structure is made and maintained. It is unfortunate to know your part. If you have better option move out, or just wait for your turn to come.

Maybe you should go as soon as possible, and ask your boss for permission to go. though he does not care about you.
