|Hiya, I've been doing software development for about 5 years now, but always at smaller companies. My last company had about 25 developers on a single product and that was largest team I'd ever worked on at that time. I'm now working on team with closer to 250 developers across 3 locations/timezones and it's extremely overwhelming.|
I've been here for about a month now and still feel like I'm mostly just in free falling trying to figure out 95% of what anyone talks about or how to do things. It seems like everything works fundamentally differently than it does for a smaller scale company.
Do you have any advice for short/long term success as a developer that is very new to operating in an environment at this scale?
