This heart breaking story is for and by all the IT employees out there(Fake Humans of IT).
Fake Humans of IT:
Some where in this cruel world of IT industry, I was working day and night from the past 3 years. And it was just to earn bread and butter for my family. Every year people celebrate New year and I used to wait for my Performance Appraisal Results to celebrate. But year after year I was only given hope instead of Appraisal. My Boss repeated the same dialogue every year, “Son, you are a very critical resource for this Project. Due to Cost Cutting this year, it will not be possible to give appraisal. But I promise that you will be rewarded next time”. These are the exact words that came from his mouth every time. Furthermore, I being an employee with no guts, start to work again like before.
Instead of Appraisal, I was given an award “Rising Superstar” of the year which comprises of a Traveling Bag and a Notepad. After that I was forced to give party to my team which costs me more than the cost of my Reward. I being a douche bag trusted my manager and here, I am still in the same company and working for more than 12 hours a day because of the hope that was given to me. I request all of you not to be a fool like me, make dependency and then switch to some other Company.
Don’t Hope, Just Do It.
