Resignation letter due to poor management (Samples)

In this brief blog post, we will provide examples of a resignation letter due to poor management.

Resignation letter due to poor management

A resignation letter due to poor management can be written when the conditions at your company are not the best, especially related to management.

Hence, you may be considering a new job offer or looking for a new opportunity. 

The examples we will present include some details on why an employee finds current conditions unsatisfactory.

While it is your right to elaborate on the poor management problems that are causing dissatisfaction, it is not recommended turning your letter into a complaint.

Your resignation letter due to poor management should include elements such as the date you are writing the letter, name of your manager/supervisor or recipient, few highlights about your time in the company, the reason for leaving, a brief description and the last day you will work for them. 

Sample 1 resignation letter due to poor management

“Today’s Date

Manager Name

Company Name

Company Address

Dear Mr./Ms. Manager:

It is with reluctance that I submit this letter. Although my time with (company name) has been, on the whole, satisfying and productive, for quite a while now I have become less and less satisfied with the work situation. The direction of the company, the group in which I work, and the new targets and the methods of accomplishing them have made it increasingly difficult to feel I’m contributing enough.

Therefore, it is with regret that I ask you to accept this letter of resignation from (company name) effective (last day of work).

Sincerely,

(Sign Here)

Your Name”

“This resignation letter example is written from the perspective of someone who has had a positive experience, wants to maintain a positive relationship and is thankful for the opportunity:

[Date]

[Immediate Supervisor],

Please accept this letter as notice of my formal resignation from my position at [xyz company]. My last day of employment will be [date].

I want to thank you for providing me with this opportunity three years ago. You saw my potential and provided the chance to learn from you and the team in ways that I could not envision and in ways that were unclear to me at the time. We’ve tackled many successful projects together, but my favorite was [project x]. That’s the project that showcased to me how much your mentorship expanded my [descriptive] expertise, and we had a lot of fun along the way. The time you spent teaching and challenging me has left a lasting impact on my career and development, and I’m grateful to have worked for you.

I wish you and everyone at [company] the best and look forward to staying in touch and helping in any way that I can — during and after this smooth transition. I’m reachable at [email] or [phone].

Sincerely,

[Name]”

Sample 4 resignation letter due to poor management

“Experiences over the past several months convince me that I must resign from my position as counselor, effective no later than two weeks from today. When I was initially hired at Doe Corporation, I thought that this was a company believed, as I did, that the relationship between a company and its employees should be mutually beneficial. Poor wages, infrequent raises, uncompensated overtime, routine layoffs, and an excessive workload have convinced me otherwise. Therefore, I can no longer work for a company that clearly undervalues the worth of its employees.

I want to thank you, however, for being a wonderful supervisor. I appreciate the time you took to discuss my concerns with me. I know you did everything you could to improve our working conditions, but the fact that your efforts have been persistently ignored by upper management is indicative that things are not about to change in the near future. I sincerely hope that my resignation does not adversely reflect upon you in any way.

Two weeks should provide adequate time for me to complete my assignments. According to current policy, I suspect my duties will be assimilated in the usual way. Nonetheless, I will gladly ensure that my more difficult accounts are settled before I leave.”
