Thanks Tamar :-)

It was nice to be wanted to be retained back !!. But I don't like the companies in my country that much though.. Though they are US based companies, still their mindset is still quite bad in their branches there. My company here and in my country is an exception. It is actually quite very nice to be here. There is so much of freedom and independance and people are very open. The other day I spoke to a director who was in my country, and I liked him so much. He was totally non egoistical, didn't expect un deserved respect just for being a director, he was totally respectful, open and honest. I haven't had any of that with my interaction with any other company.

There is way too much politics, and favouritism, even bullying and being in the good books of senior people etc. I hate all that. And all the HRs made so many mistakes in my interviews.. Once they called me for a wrong skill set. I went and wasted 5 hours there. Another company called me and forgot to interview me for 3 hours. I was waiting in the reception for 3 hours !!!. And another company told me they will give me an offer, but were too lazy to work on it. Eventually I got offers in all those companies, but still, it was totally unprofessional. They even typed my offers incorrectly, made a big fuss about joining date etc.. Totally not professional !!. IT is going to be a huge shock for me when I go back there. Even the supposedly great ones are not really that good. Especially the working culture is really very bad. They don't treat people with respect at all.

I had a bad interaction with a HR today morning and I don't like her one bit. She is like a crying child screaming for eveyrthing, and she made so many mistakes in my offer letter, and is totally irresponsible and reckless and on top of it is so defensive !!. I was like "Gosh give me a break". I was so surprised that the company chose her to represent the company to the outside world. I would have fired her if I was her manager within a day. Such poor choice for a HR. And for all this the company is one of the top few in Fortune 500. I was totally not impressed with her. I wonder how they manage to run business this way.

Anyway, I am just whining.. Don't pay attention :-). Just a bad day.

I am sure it will all work out eventually and I will probably get used to the delays and waits and favouritisms and politics there. IT is just that I have become so used to a clean system, and it is horrible to go back to that.
