Recently I started a contract and after joining I was told that we have to work using remote desktop, so I use my PC to login to another PC in the city they are which has made development slow as hell. I have tried to tell them if I can use my mac and do development to save time. But due to their IT policies I cannot do that or install any program that isn't being used by team e.g. I wanted GUI for Git but they force me to use Git by terminal.
This hinder my performance and already making me fall behind deadline. How can I discuss with manager that current setup in effecting my performance and ability to do tasks, I know his answer will be that is that the best we can do, should I discuss or start looking else where?
