Smooth review call, however got escalated to my manager

So, the offshore delivery POC and I was working hard to address as much as comments possible, shared by the offshore lead before the scheduled call. But we were able to address only few of those comments and was expecting the other comments to be addressed by the on-site team. The call started and I was running through the updates that was made in the daytime to the on-site team and was detailing the comments shared by the offshore delivery lead and was requesting their support to address those comments. The on-site team was conveying that few of those comments shared by offshore delivery lead was irrelevant and they would try to address few comments. They were also debating about the information that would be going into the final slide pack and finally they were agreeing to the common storyline. The call got over in smooth manner and the hand off was done to the on-site team for making their updates. However, I got escalation mail from my manager to discuss about the call happened and suggestions shared by offshore delivery lead. Read more about the escalation from G R Team sites.

Rating finalized for me for the current year

I was waiting anxiously for the day to get information about my rating for the current year and I was sure that I would not be awarded last rating. However, it all depends on my manger and inputs from my colleagues across different location. I was working in the office anxiously for the finalized rating and I was sure that it would be shared earliest in a day or two. Suddenly I got a ping from my old teammate who had moved to new team that what was my rating and the comments shared by my manager. Without any clue about my rating I was conveying him that I have no idea about the rating or the feedback from the manager. He was persistent about the rating and was requesting me to check the portal for the finalized rating. To my surprise the finalized rating was shared and to add further to my surprise, I was awarded first rating in my team and read about more about my excitement from the posts in “G R Team Sites”

Another work day on tight opportunity

The other delivery person was able to manage the questions quite well and accounts team was pretty much okay with the shape of the proposal. However, there was a twist in the tale, the accounts team was providing various inputs to be incorporated in the deck and the call got over without much escalations. Post the call, I get call from another delivery person checking whether the updates to be made either today or tomorrow. I was like, “what the hell” there is no possibility of completing the changes in middle of the night and it takes lot of time to complete. So, let us incorporate all the changes suggested tomorrow and we can share near final version by tomorrow night. Initially the delivery person was hesitant, but later she agreed upon and disconnected the call. Now comes the most irritating part of working in this opportunity, few mins later this discussion I get call from my manager requesting status update on the call and whether I would be able to manage it. I said all the process are on track and we would be able to complete the work by tomorrow. However, before finishing it there were lot work in between and continue reading at “G R Team Sites”
