Null Void in life and Appraisals


Written on 3:12 PM by nitesh

" Expect sweet surprise "
It was written in my daily forecast in TOI under my sun sign LEO.

I was happy in the morning as I had completed my morning tasks (not office related). Came to office happily met my colleague who came back from US after 2.5 months had some chocolates though not much I liked the choco biscuits which he had brought.

Sweet surprise which I though could be related to my yearly appraisal which is due since 31st July. So i though I may get it today. But came the mail from the respectable HR department stating that letters has been sent to your managers and the distribution will start from 17th september and the process will be over by 28th September.

Only one word came in my mind after reading that mail "Bullshit"
I read the mail again and understood the whole strategy .. the process will never start on 17th so expect the revised letter on 28th Sept which is Friday , hence the letter will go the Finance/HR after my sign latest by Monday i.e 1 october so my salary will not come in october but in November may be 1st nov if every thing goes all right from now.

Okay no problem with this mail it happens but when you keep on promising again and again that you will get your letter ( as it is commonly called in IT world) by 31st August it hurts. The HR gal calls a meeting telling you the whole of the procedure with strict deadlines with fixed dates 25th july 28 the july etc, we all feel assured that this will go correct with us.

This is frustrating and because there is no other place where I can vent my anger so I am writing to calm down myself.

Companies talk about meeting the deadlines infact beating the deadlines in delivering the required to the customers but when it come to their employees there is no such concept ... delay will not do any harm .... this is their feeling I think. I don't with this vision/values can the company succeed.

HR guys should do a survey of how the efficiency of the employees falls when he is not given his due on promised date, when a engineer works hard to meet the deadline why can't you work hard to meet the deadline on the promised.
Had there been a month delay from our side we would have been screwed.

I am getting frustrated and don't want to work, probably the dull phase which creeps my mind once in 30-40 days has come back. It is this phase where you are tensed there is huge emotional turmoil going on in the brain/heart and you feel like shouting at the top of your voice at the top of a building just like irffan khan did in the movie metro. There is huge vaccum like thing i am feeling. Other reason can be no pay no work if it can be no work no pay why can't that also exist. But that's no that big reason this is trivial matter but though frustration is still there.

I need a break to charge myself for one of the biggest battle coming on which a lot of my future depends.
