On the other hand, if you are leaving for negative reasons, you should think long and hard before you tell your employer the reasons for your decision. Very often, your employer will provide you the opportunity to give feedback during an exit interview. This is your chance to voice your reason for leaving. However, you are not required to provide an answer as to why you are leaving. Very often, simply stating that you arrived at the decision that it was time to move on is the best route to go.
Employers are often aware of how dysfunctional their workplaces are. If you're leaving, chances are that you tried to make the best of it and somehow, it didn't work out.
Verbalizing problems that you see does not mean that the problems will go away. But, what is likely to happen is that the employer will become offended. Your boss will learn about your feedback and may be less interested to give you a recommendation or referral in the future. Unfortunately, sharing negative reasons when you depart rarely helps you or anyone else.
