After passing three certifications in Java and J2EE I found a job, the project leader gave me a lot of interfaces to develop with HTML,CSS and JavaScript, there are no designers there and this was the first deception

Anyway, I suffered during a month to make them and now they want to develop the business
components with a framework called convergence, a bad one created by some poor developers here, no training, no examples, just a documentation full of empty theory

they want me to create business components for a wizard designed by another developer,
this man will develop the first two steps of this wizard, the third step will be made by another,
and finally me will make the last two steps, all these steps are joined with each other and
we are told to work simultaneasly, so everyone does whatever in his corner

there is no specification, no interfaces to implement, you should go everytime ask a poor
architect about what you have to do, even him does not know exactly what the client want

I began to feel some trouble in my heart from all this confusion, maybe I will quit this week,
I think even to change this career

Any advice will be welcomed

Thank you

Before leaving, have a look at this Joel Spolsky article and see whether it gives you any inspiration.

Agreed. Having little or poor documentation is somewhat common. Having poor specifications is somewhat common. To quit over something that is somewhat common -- that you can do something about -- is silly. Help write some of the documentation, even if it is just notes that you figured out. Help create a specification -- even one that is constantly changing. And send it out to your colleagues. Even if it isn't accurate (due to the changes), it will help keep everyone on the same page.
