Is quitting or getting fired better?
If you have another job lined up, then it probably makes more sense to quit rather than wait to be fired. If you don’t have a job lined up, then waiting to be fired could give you more time to job search while still getting paid. Employers are sometimes hesitant to hire someone with a track record of being fired.
