I joined a company 3 months back as a Business Analyst. Previously used to work as a Risk Analyst. During my job interview I was never asked a question about my studies as I had joined a Post Graduate course and completed that (was correspondence based and did while working as a Risk Analyst).
I was offered a position and good hike in salary, I accepted and joined. From Day 1, I was put on projects and I took it as a challenge. But after a month, the pressure and job expectations were too high. I couldn't cope and hence made mistakes, for which I was rebuked too. I took it upon myself that it was due my fault. This continued for the coming 2 months.
Yesterday, my manager told me that that I was being put on a PIP and I have a month to show results, I called my parents and told that I want to resign. My parents called my manager and asked the reason for non-performance as they were worried too. My manager told that I am hard working and sincere , but I not able to understand the requirements.
I called up my manager telling I want to put down my papers. He said that during my interview there was a expectation mismatch and he said that he will hand hold me for a month and teach me. Even after that I feel that this job is not my cup of tea then I can put down my papers and resign.
I want to know whether it is wise to give a month time and learn or resign and introspect / revise what was taught during my course for a month and half and then search for opportunities.
P.S. I was fresh out of my PG course and did not have prior experience in Business Analysis.The previous company is a huge company in Fortune 500 and the current company is startup types.
