I had a rather unexpected experience recently with a company that I joined. Once I joined for the first three weeks I was not given any direction or proper tasks to do. I had to ask for some work. Even now I am just doing miscellaneous things. I sit quite far away from the development team. This seems to be a problem for me as a new comer I prefer to stay close to the team so that I can get to know them better and get their support if needed.
These experiences have led me to wonder whether I am at the right place. My initial impression of the place totally changed.
Any of you guys have gone through any thing similar to this? If so I would like to find out how you dealt with it.
Hi, Even i too had a similar type of experience when i started my project in Indian Oil Corp. Ltd. I didn't had any major work and no project related information was given to me for 2 months. I had to do some of their other office works like preparation of reports for the Materials department,etc. But now, after that i got up involved in a major project with their Operations Dept. Don't worry it happens...
