I work at a company X which keeps two types of employees, one as contingent workers(people from different organization but working for X) and another as full time employees who are X's own hires.
With this context set, I work at X as a contingent from a company Y. Due to many issues, such as lack of recognition, low hike from Y for the work I did at X etc, I sought to look for employment opportunities elsewhere and I got an offer from another organization Z.
Now I have resigned from Y and am serving the notice period for Y which is 60 days. I also wanted to explore that if I could be converted to a full time employee at X. I had a talk with my reporting manager from company X about my situation and on my request, he talked with the management and got my feedback(which was positive) and they agreed to get me converted to a full time employee for X, thus essentially removing the issues I was having by working for X through Y.
This communication with my manager was only verbal, and he told that as soon as openings come up(they don't have the opening's list now, as many people are on vacation), he would get me converted as a full time employee for X but the duration to convert me may take as long as 120 days from now. In the meantime, he told me to talk to Y and take back my resignation and continue working as a contingent. Once he has information of the openings available at X, he would notify me, on which, I would once again submit my resignation at Y and X would initiate the procedure of buying me out from Y. (Y has certain clauses which X needs to fulfill should X want to convert any of Y's employees as their own)
Here are my questions :
- Would it be okay to ask X that if they are going to match my compensation at Y and match my offer at Z (which is higher than Y)?
- If I just accept to the verbal communication and cancel my resignation at Y and inform Z that I won't be able to join them since I would be retained by X, what options would I have, if later on X offers me a package less than that of Z or even less than my current package at Y? I would have lost my leveraging clauses.
- What if Y decides that they would not let me go from their payrolls? (Since Y outsources resources to X, there are rumors that I heard, that prevents X from buying off Y's people until they both agree that Y is ready to let go and X is willing to take in that employee as a full time person)
- Or should I back off and just join Z?
