Today I write to submit my resignation effective XX/XX/XX. I can no longer work with the backstabbing coworkers nor the pathological liars who call themselves the Executive Management Team.
You do not encourage new ideas. Employees who express opinions that do not go with the herd are considered “not being team players” rather than agents for opportunity, innovation, conversation and building something better. You have not tapped into my full talents; a promise you made when you hired me. Viewpoints other than yours don’t seem to matter nor do they seem welcomed.
Clearly you enjoy being a rubber stamp to those above you in the chain of command rather than a catalyst for great things. I cannot be your rubber stamp one more second. I deserve better. Your customers definitely deserve better.
I look forward to putting this awful experience behind me. I must stop this energy suck from destroying my soul. Resignation is the only answer.
The one who showed up every day looking to make a difference to customers and co-workers, but was not afforded that opportunity
Note: This resignation letter was just a bit of fun developed while talking with someone about to quit her job. We had fun coming up with it over a cocktail. No, she didn’t send it. Although she really, really, wanted to do so. Sometimes you just need to write the resignation letter you really want to write and keep it to yourself; then write the professional one that won’t bite you in the ass down the road.
