I got hired a couple of months ago by a product-based company.
All I've done these two months is learning how the product is made (it's a monolith), how everything is coupled together and how to integrate some feature they asked me to do.
I developed this feature itself in less than a week, but the other two months have been basically doing reverse engineering by spamming debug on this monolith.
I come from a consultancy firm in which the work is more bullshit-based, smoke and mirrors, etc., but I worked almost everyday with data science tools (huggingface, pandas, keras, building my own models, dealing with my data pipelines, model and data versioning, plots, etc.), in short, more what I'm supposed to do.
Is this normal? Am I just overreacting and I should have more patience? Should I mention it to my manager?
