Its been a while since I added a post to my Blog. Lot of things happened which made my life very very hectic.
Phase 1 of the major project I was working on finally went live this Tuesday. But the after effects of the go live was unimaginable.
Lot of serious issues came in , which needed immediate resolution.
My managers are treating the go live as a failure. However, according to my its my biggest success till date. For the past two months or so, I have been working day and night.
No time to talk to my parents over phone, No time to eat and no time to sleep.
I used to return home by 1AM /2AM . I used to hit the bed when it was early morning.
Workload and pressure was so high that I had to do all the work...(One Woman Army ) .
My friends and family members started scolding me.
Our project is based on On-site - Offshore Model.
Post go - live our on-site manager escalated saying that Offshore has not worked at all and all the post go live issues are because of Offshore.
When Success comes, Everyone wants a share...If its a failure, then only one person(i.e, I should take the responsibility).
My manager @ offshore read out that escalation email and asked me " Aren't you angry ?"
I was very very tired.If were normal I would have broke the computer screen . I was half sleepy and did not have strength to even get angry .
I answered him back saying "Dog's tail cannot be straightened ".
Its very difficult to change a person's character and this person is also like that.
No matter how much you work...Its OK not to get any appreciation but its hard to accept a false statement that you did not work at all. It hurts. Only I know that how much stress I went through .
If I did not work then how the hell did the project go live on time.
People are so selfish. No recognition for my work.
But I can guarantee one thing. No other resource in my project could have done better than me in this project.
I hope someone is seeing my performance and hope I get the recognition I deserve.
