I'm considering quitting or being fired from my job. What are the pros and cons of each option?

I’ve been at my job for about a year now and I’m really not enjoying it. I’m thinking about either quitting or letting them fire me. What are the pros and cons of each option?

Both quitting and being fired from a job can have upsides and downsides.

If you quit, you have the control over when you leave and can often negotiate a better severance package. However, quitting can also negatively impact your future job prospects as it may be seen as quitting on a job, rather than taking another opportunity.

If you are fired, you may not have as much control over the situation and it can be harder to find another job. However, being fired can also be seen as a positive if you can explain the situation in a positive light (e.g. the company was downsizing).

Ultimately, you will need to weigh the pros and cons of both options to decide what is best for you.
