Work-life balance or money matters in IT professionals’ life


In recent times, there has been a huge increase in attrition rates across the IT companies and most professionals prefer higher package while switching. While it may depend on individual’s preference and may often have justification for their preferences. However, I prefer work-life balance and peace of mind over higher package. Following was few of my perception on why I prefer to stay in my current job over the high paying new job:
  • Getting work done in quick time and leveraging internal connects: When your stay in a company for a long time, it always works out for you, as you can get your work completed in quick time and reach out to peers for any additional queries or suggestions. However, if you are moving to new company, if you must figure out things to get it done and may find difficulties in reaching out to relevant stakeholders to get clarifications.
  • Work-Life balance and peace of mind: Often work-life balance depends on the specific project and company’s policies. If you are tagged into a good project with no work on weekends or late nights and have comfortable work exposure at your existing company, then there is no point in switching to the new job and lose out your peace of mind or invaluable times with your family.

Above perception of not to change job for high pay package may change for person to person and it always based on individual’s preference of whether they want more money or peace of mind. For more such articles, please feel free to check out the articles published in “G R Team Sites”

Completed unwanted task list from Onsite team

After clarification from the onsite team, my entire focus should be on the task list shared and not to work on any other suggestions or comments from my manager or any other person for that matter. I was a bit relieved in this direction from the onsite team as all the task list shared by the onsite team would not take more than an hour and any inputs or suggestions from my manager will be irrelevant due to the clear directions from the onsite team. By the end of the day, I have completed all the tasks assigned by the onsite team and in the daily status calls, I presented my work to them. Surprisingly, there were no new suggestions or inputs from the onsite team, and they were acknowledging my effort on the task list. However, I did not know that all these efforts will be in vain and I had to start from scratch post clarification from the Client.

Job loss during Coronavirus

To recap shortly, I took a long vacation before Covid-19 pandemic striking across country and got mail communication from my office that my job is secured, and the situation would not impact my salary structure. Even though the mail communication was consoling about the job, there was slight fear in me about the status of my job, as there was not even a single mail communication happening in the team and it was bothering me more than anything else. I wanted to check with my colleague about the work status in our team and called him up to validate the same. We spoke for about 15 mins and the discussions were mainly focused on our future in the company and our job security. To my surprise, he was mentioning that the entire team had work during my vacation and the Covid-19 pandemic situation gripping over the world. In addition, our team manager had mentioned that our team can connect from home until further notice and don’t need to worry about Covid-19 situation. To know more about what happened, please feel free to check out the blog posts in “G R Team Sites”

Convincing my manager about the work

After getting message from my manager, that all my work on weekend is irrelevant to the client requirements and all the slides have to be reworked again. I was furious at him and was asking him questions about exact client requirements. Now he took a step back and was consoling me that these on-site guys always have the habit of sharing the irrelevant information to us. My manager himself understood that whatever information that I have shared was relevant and I didn’t want him to embarrass further and told him that let’s take the version whatever I have shared to the on-site and get their inputs before even making iterations on the deck. He acknowledged the fact and this time he conveyed to the delivery people that we will take this version to on-site and after getting their inputs we will work on the client requirements. I felt relieved and was hoping to get some relevant information from the on-site team and they acknowledge my work. However exact opposite things happened and to know more, please feel free to check out the blog posts in “G R Team sites”.

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”

Still working on complex opportunity

Now I had to patch all teams and needed to make a promise that I would own up this opportunity including scheduling calls with this complex delivery expert. To ensure smoothness for the opportunity I have scheduled call with both new complex delivery expert and with old delivery expert with whom I had good rapport. Everything I was hoping to work out went out loose and was backfiring me, the new delivery expert was directly speaking with and he avoided speaking with my old delivery expert and the old delivery expert did the same. Of everyone in the call, I am the only person who didn’t have any clue about what’s happening in the call. After few discussions and mails, finally I figured out both had ego issues with each and I had to sort it out to complete this opportunity. However, they were in no mood to listen up with my discussion and was firing with each other on every call I had scheduled. I had very bad time of conveying message with respective delivery expert and was totally pissed off. Both delivery expert was curbing about each other in separate calls with me and was about to escalate each other. Continue reading at “G R Team Sites”
