Okay, so I’m leaving my job soon but I’m confused because even though it was a mutual decision, it feels like it was more forced.
Details are this: I was having a really bad day, my relationship just ended, I lost several friends to metastatic breast cancer, I was stressed at work and couldn’t focus, so I did what I believed was the responsible thing and let my boss know what was going on without providing all the dirty details, I needed a mental health day.
Her response was she was concerned that whatever I was going through was impacting my ability to do my job and she wanted to get on top of the it right away. This was the first I heard that of this but I let her know that the job was part of the problem.
Yes, I just received a promotion, I don’t feel I was properly trained for the new roll within the organization and I was still ver heavily involved in training the person that took over my previous roll.
Anyway, my supervisor and I spoke about the issues that following day and she almost immediately suggested that we start talking about an exit plan. This was her idea though I agreed.
I’m still receiving a severance package though they aren’t calling it that, and they are telling everyone it was my choice alone.
Does it seem to anyone else here that I was pushed out?
