Ever been backstabbed by a vendor and new client who went around you And to find out they'reworking together? Disappointed in the lack of integrity in people and mainly myself. Trust no one.

Yup. By a longtime vendor and client. I had vouched for the vendor too. which made it worse. That shit hurts.

I tried but client was on board for edging us out. I'm waiting for Karma...

Hi everyone,

I have joined a company few months back. The process is to give interviews to get projects from clients.
During my first 2 months I have appeared on 3 interviews and I have cracked 2 interviews and have to work on 2 projects. It's been almost 2months I am working on the two projects simultaneously and I came to know that the client company outsourced me as full time employee. That means I am working for 2 companies at the same time.

I am continuing this in comments
