Ze first day!
Joined the new workplace today :D.The induction program – thats what they called it – seemed more like a instruction calss of what not to do at the place. It lasted for about 45 mins. However, when I got to see all the eye candy around the place my disappointments were washed away :mrgreen:. Sadly the place is such that everyone just sits at his/her desk jabbing away at the keyboard. That is why me and one of my 'co-joinees' have decided to make the place a bit more lively in the days to come. How far we are going to succeed remains to be seen. But if we fail then it'll b a major blow to my prospects there. Coming as I do from a place where no one bothered what I did as long as the job was done, this place seems like a jail!
The job profile seems to be very interesting and challenging. I will be involved in the development from the product from the scratch. Well, not really the scratch since the idea is already generated, but the product is still at a nasecent stage. So looking forward to the expirience.
Another noticible culture over here is the existence of some rules which no one follows. The management is fully aware of this. I hope they are scrapped ASAP since it makes them look stupid. I also hope that a bit more of freedom as given to our group, since we will b doing something no one newhere in the organisation does, authorship! It will be adisaster if we are lockd up in a place and asked to b there for 9 hrs a day with all sorts of useless restrictions on the accessing of the www (read the first line of para :mrgreen:).
With the kind of pay me is getting, me can make a few adjustments, but not too many :nono:. Khair, I am hoping for the best. let's see what the coming few months have in store.
