When hired -> Wowww
When review cycle is missed due to date of joining -> Ok no problem, I'l make up for it next year
In the interim -> Lets work, do something different, innovate, build credibility, make a mark, be proactive, be super productive, work super hard, work really smart (mind you - employee's manager doesn't think so)and all other sorts of illusion.
When review cycle finally arrives -> WTF?? This needs no explanation
Looking for new job - > OK. Few days more. Lets pull along. Lets keep the search strong.
Finding a job, but not the right one -> That's fine. I'l get there soon. The earlier interesting work seems monotonous ( actually 'shitty' is the word)
Found a job / Finally resigning -> Wowww.. Fantabulous. Have never felt so relieved before. Let's get out of this place asap.
Notice period extended -> Oh nooooo.. Jaane nahiiiiii.... denge mujheeee.... jaane mujheeee.. denge nahi..... I hate gyaan stories from my manager.
Notice period further extended -> WTF??? Let me show them what I can do, they will never hold on to anyone for so long. Here comes the "Whose Father What goes" (किसके बाप का क्या जाता?) attitude. ( Sorry dear English, I couldn't find a better translation for this ultimate truth)
Moral of the Story : Life cycle summary of employment is mostly W3 (not world wide web) Its Whose Father, What goes, WTF
