I took a sick leave of more than 3 months after having neglected health problems, and an evaluation meeting exacerbated my situation. I completely lost interest in the project.
My boss asserted once that my contribution was important, especially when it came to complex tasks.
I lost faith in my employer after seeing how my contribution was important, without interesting rewards, while my colleagues with limited skills were quickly promoted.
Some colleagues were promoted even if they were in a conflict with the customer itself, but they were in good terms with the bosses.
Anyway, the current situation now is that my boss called me and asked if I would stop my sick leave to work in a less stressful project and I accepted and got paid last month without doing anything. I just had a meeting and a PowerPoint document describing the project.
This boss then scheduled weekly meetings starting from January 2021.
During the last meeting, my boss said that nothing is ready and the project is being negotiated etc.
I am now comfortably getting paid and no one asks me about what I spend my days doing (working remotely).
Is there something going behind the scenes (are they waiting for me to resign gracefully)?
PS: My contribution in the previous project was always impressive, and when left in late 2017, it was a great loss according to my boss, and when I came back in 2019, the team started doing well again. Every time I take part of this project I make things work, but my boss always look for excuses to dismiss my promotion/raise.
