Need advice. I was told that I need to resign and be paid for the next 30 days or hit double my sales quota. My white counterpart, whose performance has kept him from hitting quota as well, is having no consequences. Im only 9 months in my role and came in with no book of business. Once I didnt resign and pushed back, they gave me a 90 day PIP with goals that are impossible to reach. I asked whats the precedent for this PIP as well as how they came up with the terms. Neither were answered.

I recently switched company, but now i am realising that the role which i have been assigned is not the one which was offered to me.

I then decided to go back to my previous organization. They are ready to take me back. Salary difference is not much(about 15% less than my current ,but approx 65% from my last drawn salary in my previous org). But i used to love my work and role in my previous organization.i switched because of money.

Is the decision right to go back ?

Retirement in India or USA.

Desi folks - What is your long term plan. Would you retire is USA or go back to India. I plan to go back to India and see my kids couple of times a year ( after they are settled here) . I miss india and a lot of things in India. People say that once you have lived here in USA for that long ( for me it is 24 years) I won’t like India ….. but I don’t think that will be the case with me. I don’t plan to work in India. I plan to retire.
