Q: I wonder if Chinese act differently when comes to resign the job?

I was thinking of telling my boss that I do not get along with these Chinese colleagues and decide to resign from this job.

All my Chinese friends think that is not a good idea to say it and it would leave a bad impression. I think why should I care how they think of me after I left this company.

An American friend said it is the perfect most reasonable reason to give for resign the job.

So I wonder if it is a main culture diffrence for them to hold a completely diffrent opinion.

I don't really understand the need to give a reason for resigning but it does make sense to leave on good terms if possible and I do know explaining why you're leaving so everyone is cool with it is how it's usually done in China so....

 

That's not a bad reason, it's the truth. But if you use it be ready with some answers when your boss tries to talk you out of leaving by saying he'll fix the problem. You know he can't and won't.

 

Here's another idea - Chinese staff I've worked with have often said they have family issues to take care of as a reason for leaving. It seems perfect because everyone understands and respects that, and nobody is going to pry and ask for details about the family problem, and if they did you could just look worried and say you don't want to talk about it.

 

That's what I would say if I were you. Family stuff to deal with, don't want to talk about it, here's my month notice.

A:If he did contact the embassy they would tell him to engage a lawyer. They at least might be able to point him towards a somewhat decent lawyer, I don't think they'd be of much help aside from that though. I doubt the lawyer would be able to do much other than help negotiate the compensation he will need to pay.   -- Stiggs
