I do Software Quality Assurance. In the past 6 months I've been pulled off my primary team to work with other teams. These are not one day tasks, but month long projects that require lots of time spent learning the product to understand how to effectively test.
I'm happy to assist anyone, as long as I'm adding value. I complete the work required, report to management and move back to my Primary Team, to only be pulled away again to assist some other team with testing. Since I feel my primary responsibility is with my Primary Team (since that is the team I was assigned to when I was hire) I feel slightly as if I'm not needed/wanted for that team.
I understand that it is hard to give a good answer without some context...All I can say is that I have not really received any negative-feedback with my work. Most people seem happy to have the extra help.
My question is: Should I view being pulled to assist other teams as a good or bad thing?
-Should I be worried that my work seems unsatisfactory or not needed for my Primary Team?
-Or should I take this as a compliment, that I can add value no matter where I am placed.
