This is the original problem from an employee...
Hi everyone,

To get to the point real quick, I'm very unhappy at my job and need to seek other employment. The problem I'm having is whether or not to let my boss know that I intend to resign. I'm the manager of my location and I report to the CEO who is over about 40 other locations. I have a very good relationship with him and I know he values me as an employee, so that's a part of why I don't know how to go about this. Also, the company helped me with an education about a year ago, only adding to my guilt. Considering this and the relationship I have with my boss, I feel like I owe it to him to let him know my intentions, so I don't leave him hanging with nobody to run the operation. But I just don't know if I should. There is nothing that can change my mind about resigning, as the stress, anxiety and general unhappiness I feel in this particular line of work is detrimental to my health. I think, as a manager, I would appreciate if a key team member was in my situation and let me know that they had to leave. I don't know; as you can tell my thoughts are pretty scattered about this. Does anybody have any advice on this matter? Thank you so much reading this and offering your opinion.

In your position, it would be pretty common to give 4 weeks as notice. Make sure that you don't leave them high and dry. Ensure that there are no major projects that you are half way through that require you specifically.

Otherwise, ya... move on and know that you are doing what you feel is best for you.
