The project I am working on is given by the government organization to two private companies (A1 and A2) through a bidding process. The government is their client and the companies are vendors. I am actually an outsourced employee of government, working for them and overseeing the projects lead by these two companies (A1 & A2) but in reality I am employee of Company A1.
The project is worth US$ 80 million and nothing is done on schedule, no correct penalties are applied to the vendors in reality and no body from my government company raises fingers at them since they are now friends with the PM of companies A1 & A2. Vendors take them on foreign tours and dinners etc., buy them cars and do personal favors for them. The PM of these vendors is also responsible for giving me salary, bonuses, an experience letter, etc. But at the end of the day, I am working for the government company who is corrupt and dishonest, just like the vendors.
Whenever I send an escalation email regarding the issues of the project, suddenly I am the bad guy. When in reality, I am only doing my job. What should I do? I am just so tired.
