Oh I don't have any staff to have issues with. It is just lucky that everyone who was previously so terribly unappreciated and stifled in development despite their obvious talent has managed to find such satisfaction and nurturing of their substantial assets in their new environments.
I mean it couldn't possibly be that they're enjoying the novelty of a new job...

I like working for the company and get on well with them but I need to leave. There is a project coming up that they want me involved with but I don't want to base their plans on me being here and then leaving. Do you reckon I should tell them my intentions now? I don't want to give my notice since if I don't get the visa I cant go. Should I wait until I get it and give the standard 4 weeks?
I would be appreciative of one of my guys telling me before I signed them up for some sizeable project... other managers maybe not so reasonable...as seen in this thread already.
If you think it could jeopardize your job there if the visa falls through, then probably best to keep it to yourself until your plans are solid.

For those of us who work in IT and are constantly plagued by parents and relatives asking for you to look at their PC problem.... just be thankful you are not a gynecologist.
Been reading all your posts . You all have valid points . My last day was today . I have had a bad year with family problems ( looking after terminally ill ) and just recently my oldest son in hospital with an as yet unidentified illness . Not once has my boss asked about how i am going , not that i expect this but when the other people i was working with ask then you know they appreciate your efforts . We were sold by Volvo trucks to a privately owned company and i have to say it has been a nightmare to say the least . All the new owner seems to be concerned about is money . Anyway i am not there anymore due to my own choice . I know where you all come from in regards to investing time and money into people , hell i did that with all the guys i had working under me and would like to think i have left them in a good way that they can go on doing the jobs i trained them for . But as i said to them " sometimes you have to things for you , not anyone else " .
