I and my manager were working on the weekend to complete the request from the leadership team. My manager was requesting me to work on unnecessary changes, and I was furious at him, and I requested my manager to help me in updating those changes. After this request, my manager stopped sharing new suggestions, and I was taking care of the changes suggested by the onsite team. Out of nowhere, my manager shared his updated version to be discussed in the call and all my efforts went in vain. However, during the call, the onsite team was upset over the updates and wanted to focus on the latest information. I politely took control over the document and shared the slides updated from my end. After a few minutes of silence, the leadership team started to acknowledge my effort and was appreciating me for covering up the exact information in the document. My manager was absolutely silent, and he too acknowledged the effort and with no choice left, the onsite team went ahead with my version of the document.

I was assigned to work with the most annoying on-site team lead by my manager and adding to this issue my manager himself has nominated for the support. Most annoying part of working on this opportunity was getting insights from my manager, as he always provides unnecessary and irrelevant changes for the storyline, which would be thrown out by the onsite team. At many times, I sense that even the onsite team wants to keep out my manager for updates and my manager would be left out on purpose in mail threads. So, for this opportunity the onsite team was looking for customization specific to client requirements and my manager was completely against it and was suggesting alternative slide on every call. The most irritating part of it is that, I had to exhaust all my effort for that one slide suggested by my manager and at end of the day it would be trashed out by the onsite team. This was continuing on for a while and out of curiosity I was checking with my manager for completion date and my manager was mentioning that the opportunity would be completed by this week. I was wondering about the submission response, as with multiple iterative changes, it would take one more week to complete the document and I wanted my manager to validate the submission with the onsite team. However, the response shattered my handwork and to know more, please feel free to check out the blog posts in “G R Team Sites”

My manager didn’t provide any positive response for working from home until further notice due to the Covid-19 pandemic and I was about to take a long vacation for the next one week due to some family function. However, as each day passed by, the severity of the Covid-19 pandemic was increasing, and I could see many of my company employees preferring work from option. Finally, during one of my conversations, I was checking with my manager about his daily commute and was acting as if I am worried about his travel. He understood my concern about coming to the office and conveyed that I could connect from home for the next day. I was overjoyed of this information, as post next day I was about to take a long vacation and was hoping that work from home option would be extended by one more week. But this plan was completed turned upside down within a couple of days and without knowing the upcoming Tsunami of Covid-19 spread across the country, I was prepared to travel native on the same day and took only essential items back home.

I was pulled back into old service requests before my long vacation, for which I had spent very little time earlier for its completion and had very little insights about client requirements. Now, the on-site team has scheduled a call - I was confused about the nature of the service request, whether the call could be for getting insights from me on how I compiled the document with fragile client information or it could be for new requests all together starting from scratch. After much anxiety, I joined the next day’s call to understand the purpose of reopening old mail threads. The call started with all introductions and later on, the account manager started to detail client requirements. I was a bit relieved to learn that, this mail thread was altogether a new service request and since the on-site team did not know whom to reach, they have reopened old mail thread. However, at first glance, this new service request seems to be very little work and the major concern I had while involving in this service request was that it could extend until my vacation and could interfere vacation days. I don’t want that to happen and to avoid this clash with my vacation, I was conveying about my vacation plans to the offshore delivery lead that I can extend all my working days and weekends till next week and post that I am not available, please plan accordingly.
