|I started a job at a fairly large software company about 3 months ago. I was fully prepared for legacy code and dated processes, but in the interview process I was sold on “transformation” and “change”.|
Three months in and I am far less happy in comparison to my previous software engineering role. I work on a fairly distributed team, which was supposed to be agile. We don’t have a product manager and our manager isn’t involved much. We are told that we will be getting a PM, but nothing in sight.
I have one colocated team member and they are less than ideal. They fall asleep at their desk or during conference calls and don’t seem to care much about software development in general.
Onboarding and training was nonexistent. It has been pretty much trial and error since day 1.
I feel like I was sold something in the interview process that is not accurate.
Long story short, how long do I stick it out before looking elsewhere or even returning to my last job as I left on good terms?
