Please bear with me as I lay this out....
I work as a consultant for Company A. I am currently subcontracted through Company B, working at Company C. I have been here since last April, flying to NYC from Atlanta on Sundays and flying home most Thursdays.
The original contract was through the end of last year, but I was one of two people on the team from Co. B that was extended indefinitely. In December when this was extended I told the project manager from B as well as my boss from A that for various reasons I only wanted to stay until the end of April. The folks I work for are cool about it - we have more work than we have consultants to do it and we're not making much money from this particular contract.
In early February, my manager had not heard from the pm at B and when he was finally able to get get in touch with the pm in late Feb, the pm was talking like they wanted to keep me through at least September - he acted like I hadn't talked to him about April. At that point, through email, my manager told the pm in no uncertain terms that my last day would be 5/18.
It is now just over a month from that date and the pm from B has not told anyone at C that I am leaving. I'm concerned because I'm the only person working on what I do. C needs time to come up with a transition plan and find a replacement for me.
I feel like I'm in a no-win situation. I don't want the folks at C to think that this is a last minute thing and I'm leaving them in the lurch, but I'll cause problems in the relationship between B and C if I say something. I also have a big issue with the ethics of the pm at B over all of this.
I'm going to talk to my manager at A about this tomorrow because it's stressing me a bit. Anyone have any other thoughts or suggestions?
A computer only does what you actually told it to do - not what you thought you told it to do.
