Hello Healdida,
You have got good suggestions. Since you are a brilliant Manager in the company, you may like to explore further options within this company to be more innovative and indispensable. Also you need not beg them, however you can give your suggestions for the additional responsibilities for which you need to explore yourself. Suggest some better ways of improvement in the company's profits.
Simultaneous you may explore options outside the company as well in some startups wherein even if you have to sacrifice some minor tolerable part of your current emoluments, you may still stand to gain. Focus should be on continuous learning and improvement in professionalism in the chosen field.
Best wishes,

This situation is not new to the Corporate world. Maybe your usefulness has lapsed in the opinion of the decision makers who may feel that they can conduct their business without your involvement.
\"Working Yourself Out Of A Job\" is something you will have to take in your stride.
I will give you one useful \"mantra\" ...when you have been made to feel unwanted, it is best to explore other options and move out before your employers ask you to.
I am afraid resorting to legal options is not a very good idea.
Best Wishes

Every 'accident' creates an 'opportunity'. If one door is shut, another door opens up. Dont lose heart. Prepare a nice CV, incorporating all your achievements and accomplishments in the present company and post it in the job portals. If you are really meritorious, am sure, you will land in a better job very soon. Instead of their throwing you out, you can submit your resignation and walk out !
Who knows you may end up in a better job than where you are in now. You can pick a company where your performance is recognised and your efforts appreciated. They may regret your absence sooner than later.
Best wishes

Hello Healdida,
I am absolutely with NK Sundaram when he says: 'If one door is shut, another door opens up'.
I recollect a Quote by Alexander Graham Bell [the Inventor of the Telephone] that I think I have mentioned earlier in CiteHR w.r.t. some other threads: "When one door closes, He opens other DOORS--but we so often keep staring at the closed door that we fail to notice the ones that He opened for us"--the key word being 'doors'--IN PLURAL.
Hope you get the point.
All the Best.

While appreciating other's opinions and suggestions; i tend to feel that Vasant has hit the nail on the head.

It is a common tendency of small and new Indian companies, to hire a key resource at any salary asked; exploit his skills to the hilt; and once his utility is over and others can take over; to junk the resource who helped in setting up everything.

We have come across many such cases in this forum; wherein sometimes a new fresh HR, who is not aware of the past performance of the person; is given the task of firing such persons.

Sometimes they will put the blame on the "attitude" of the person; as its difficult to find performance issues in such situations.

Since it is difficult to change or control the world; it would be more appropriate if one considers changing one's own thinking and priorities for action.

One should consider his role as an specialist who is able to command such asking salary in the initial stages. Once he sees his utility on the wane; or his targets and tasks being accomplished; he should start looking for other opportunities; before the company asks him to leave.

One should remember that even an innovator like Steve Jobs was forced to leave Apple, the company he co- founded !!

Warm regards.

More often than not, shrewd Managements use fresh HR shoulders for keeping the gun and firing troublesome employees !
Dear Healdida,

One of the best thread ever i came across in my life. Wonderful suggestions posted by experts and its really worth reading it again and again.

I wish not to repeat the same. If you are aware of your caliber and competencies, move ahead in your life rather considering this as a threat to your current role. Don't give up. Given an opportunity to you, I am sure you can do better than expected. Time is the best healer and no one knows whats may happen next but for sure, good things will happen with good people. This is just the turbulance. Consider this as your examination period and you need to score the maximum. May be a good opportunity is waiting for you somewhere else. Just be positive and please do maintain healthy relationship with your Management. Never let them feel your weakness. Please don't speak or discuss anything with them unless they initiate it. Your loyalty will be rewarded by ALMIGHTY. Please be honest and sincere, the way you were and are. Later, they may be drop their plans due to your KIND ATTITUDE(GOODNESS).

Last but not the least. Please do not give preference to money in your life. Understand your requirements and live a contended life rather seeking more challenging assignments which may not meet your health conditions as age is also one the performance factors.

Good Luck.

With profound regards

In todays world, there is no permanent job in any company. Good that you gave your best to the company for stand in a market but at the same time your skill is also polished.
Once the image become down in management level, very hard effort require to remake it and today's scenerio, competition of skill, knowledge and qualifiaction is more. Better to move up and try a job in some other company where you can use your skills.
Best of Luck to you...
