I started work 2 months ago in a big company (5000 employees) as a software developper. I have the following problems:
- The manager assigned to me a couple of tasks. As in warming up. For each task there are people that I should talk to in order to help. In order to solve the tasks I have to look into the code which is so hard to understand and it's not documented. it's basically chinese. Anyhoo, every single time I go and ask them questions they seem annoyed and they don't give me full answers. Sometimes if I ask different persons I get each time 10 differents answers (For freaking sake it's Math and programming, it's not Philosophy). I really Have to go back and forth with them In order just to get the damn answer. I really have to push them to get an answer.
- I was assigned to a team to program some functions, and no one reached to me, they didn't even care. What I did is go to them once a day in the afternoon just to ask them what should I do or if I am working correctly.
What I am trying to say I feel like I am bugging them. I really don't like it, it's stressing to me, I am somehow shy and i really dont annoy people. I only ask the question once. I don't bother them with the same question over and over. It's just that I feel that i am working blind.
Is it ok to bother them more, when I finish a task? Once a day is not enough, I really need to get my stuff done. Sometimes I just want to say Screw them i don't care I'll be an A.Hole and just get my answers.
When I ask the manager he tells yes, go, ask them as much as you want. But I feel it's mean, it's not my style to really bother people.
When I also finish I always end it by thank you and excuse for bothering.
