How much information should you give when resigning?

Dear Evil HR Lady,
I’ve been at my job for two years, and I make a great salary and love the company, but a year ago, my new boss joined and he is a micro manager/control freak and I know that he will never allow me to progress. Outside of that, I’ve been maintaining two apartments for the past year – one with my signficant other in NYC, and one close to my office in Philly.

I’ve decided that I would like to take the summer off to travel and then look for a job in Manhattan this fall. I realize taking time off is risky at my level – I have over 10 years of experience, but I’ve reached burnout and need to recharge. I’m planning to resign [at the] end of this week, and not sure if I should merely make it about location vs. I’m accustomed to having much more responsibility and a team underneath me, etc. that I’m not getting in my current role. I suppose, I could do a combination of the two. I should also note that I’m offering to give anywhere from 2-5 weeks of notice so my hope is to leave on good terms.

Any guidance here would be appreciated!

  1. If you can’t say anything nice at all, just write “Please accept this as my notice of resignation effective xx/xx/xxxx”. For the letter writer in the above post, moving to New York for love is the perfect explanation. It also provides a reason for leaving in future job interviews.
