I've recently started a new job at an advertising agency, one month ago
It seems like a good place to work, but they have some very dated ways of doing things when it comes to sharing project folders... there is nothing in the way of a server or any cloud storage (e.g. Dropbox) and we have to manually send each other files and folders if one of us is to pick up from where the other left off. This makes sharing files very messy and long-winded.
They also don't use the correct choice of software for certain projects (e.g. we have to use Photoshop for designing websites).
I briefly mentioned cloud storage recently and they seemed quite opposed to the idea... I feel they don't properly understand how cloud storage works.
Everyone else seems quite happy with how things work, I don't think anyone has ever worked anywhere else... and so they've never experienced a more efficient way of working.
I find these processes quite frustrating, but ultimately I'm much happier working here compared to my previous workplaces.
Should I just bite the bullet for the time being and wait until I'm more settled in before I try to get them to improve their work processes? Maybe I should at least wait until my probationary is over.
I'm tempted to speak up sooner rather than later, but don't want to come across as rude or disruptive... being the new guy who wants to get them to completely transform how they do things there.
