I told here that I’ve got a good offer. I thought I’ll get a decent hike here because I’ve done a good work. Based on that belief and few other factors, I declined that offer. Its almost confirmed that here I wont get any hike this time. All my efforts towards shipping the product, my decisions on the design, 80 hour weeks, training for other members, personal sacrifices for this project, what more? Now all that for nothing. I’ve ‘promises’ for next appraisal, but should I wait till then? May be a good interesting work will make me stay. Nothing is decided as of now. But for the fact, I literally got pissed off because of this process.
