I have made up my mind.

Fuck current employer. They took 7 years to value me that too when I resigned and not because of my hard work and efforts.

And they are still low balling me. If I stay back, I'll not get any pay raise for next 2/3 years since current one according to them is crazy high.

Moreover, there's zero learning and I need to future proof myself and build my tool box.

If I walk out, I'll be getting a decent raise not per standards though. But I'll learn and the said domain will open up horizons for me.

And I'll continue hunting and if I find anything better in another 6 months, I'll quit and move on.

I MUST grab the opportunity in front of me for greater good. Staying back will do no good except for giving me less stressful life but with lesser benefits and growth.

Time to risk it.

Time to say goodbye to current org.

    @SortOfTested Hahahahaha okay okay... let me put it this way...

    I had patience when I shouldn't have and didn't have when I should.

    Shame on them, really. You never really told me your skills, but I guess that you are putting a lot on the table and then pay you literal peanuts.

    It's that kind of extortion from workers that, at the end of the day, collapse entire companies.

    @OmerFlame There are 2 kinds of business model:

    1. New trendy subscription model
    2. Good old traditional one, money in exchange of goods/services

    Then I came to know about the third business model that my employer has:

    Over charge customers and exploit employees by paying them garbage and earn margin on both sides to make billions and become one of the top 10 richest man in the world famous of buying islands and hosting Trump's golf parties.

    Don't forget the part about canonifying wealth disparity in legislation to ensure his business interests are never challenged and the wealth disparity remains massive. Can't have the servant class rebelling after all.

    @Berkmann18 Have you tried that IKIGAI thingy?

    @F1973 On its own, yes, following a video from The Futur (led by Chris Do):

    It's an excellent concept.
