magicMirror5506138dshit boss, fuck him. I hope it will get better, and you find a sponser, and then you get the h1b!
CoffeeNcode15394138dWhat a crappy experience! Please do take care of yourself, and don't let that experience take your self-esteem down. Just because they treated you like shit, does not mean you are shit. In fact it's often the people who try to be decent human beings who are taken advantage of. I'm sending a hug your way. Hang in there!
Hope1029138dFirst of all I won't try to tell you that it's okay because to you it probably isn't and that's why you're rightfully angry but you have to separate a cunt boss from a good field to work and make money in.
Don't hate coding, don't stop your education and don't ruin your life just because of this, just take a long long break to relax if possible to just get the hate out of your mind.
I don't know if it'll help out but something similar happened to me but I was lucky enough to have only worked in that shit company for only two weeks before I left, they pressured me to work more than 13 consecutive hours each day without a single extra over hour wage which was just fucking hell to me because of the peer pressure (I was always told to be 'like' the guy who worked from his laptop on the subway and in weekends) and it made me not only hate the company and its people but also myself, coding and anything tech.
Life goes onand you are more important than they shitty company
rutee0717493138dThat sucks. I hope all goes well for you soon and I hope none of the self-righteous trolls comment here insinuating it's your fault for giving too much and staying there for too long. I can relate because I tend to give my all as well and it broke me hard. The important thing is we learn and lessons learned from painful experiences stick to us a lot more. :)
funkyboss82138dI was pulled into the bosses office once. Was told to prepare for life changing money because the deal was done, the company was sold. Said, let's take a year off and regroup. Fast forward several months. I see new cars in the parking lot. Oh shit son, we are getting paid. But I am not seeing anything. Deal is done. Nothing. Boss gets 80 million dollars, which he deserves. Does not owe anyone shit in my opinion, until he starts telling people, "I owe you shit". Fast forward to today. Never got a dime. Those new cars in the parking lot were leases that got taken back with a quickness for perceived disloyalty. Folks sold their existing cars to take this "gift" from the boss and ended up car-less when yanked. In the end, I don't give a fuck. That was my brush with almost being rich. The boss, all things considered was a good dude. He gave me 30k one time as a retroactive raise. If he had never told me I was about to be rich and then reneged, i'd have nothing but good to say.
