This question already has an answer here:
I am a software developer, my skillset, experience and my previous employer's trust and so on would qualify me as mid to senior-level.
At the previous company I was kinda "head of" backend department and I was often tasked with leading projects. So working in a more "regular" position is something new to me. There was always something to do. Right now I feel like the work is drip-fed to me.
I have recently changed jobs and in the new company for the week and a half all I'm getting is trivial tasks of "add something here" or "remove this from here". I get 1 task every time, I have to finish it and ask for another one. The problem is - these are trivial things that I finish in half an hour or an hour tops. Which means I have to constantly bother a developer who is a technical leader on my project.
What to do? I don't want to be bored at my work but I also don't want to constantly bother that poor guy. I have already asked the Project Manager about it and they promised to have some sort of task backlog for me from which I could take tasks freely. That didn't happen for a whole week.
Should I patiently wait for a week or so to see if things improve or...?
