I started working at a place just a couple of days ago, I was working as a freelance web developer but applied and got selected for the job. The firm is not an IT /development firm but required developers for their website. The website is core to the working of the firm as it generates business leads.
Now the problem is as this not a pure IT firm they don't have a team of programmers or IT professionals whatsoever. So I have to start right from installing all the necessary software and tools to revamping their websites. That would not have been such a huge deal but none of their project files open without causing trouble, if I am able to open them they won't run or compile in the first place (These are all. NET based websites). Starting from scratch doesn't seem like a good idea because there's a lot back end that I alone would have to re do. I have spent the last 4 days trying to make the project run but every time a new problem arises.
My question is it worth my time to work hard in this organization, to get the results they want. Would it add enough value to my resume at the end of the day?
