Everytime I write some code, for as simple and "non-critical" as it can be, I must submit a code review with a senior member of the team.
The problem is: these code reviews are endless. I have some code reviews dead in my list since almost a year ago and everytime I "ping" to continue it nobody really cares.
I tried submitting stuff without a code review but they always end up blaming me for doing that. Other senior members can submit their code without any review.. and often that code is untested and error-prone.
The problem is: there's always someone who wants you to re-implement what I already did with another pattern / structure / class / etc.. sometimes even a variable name can cause disagreement (and usually everyone has a different idea of a variable name!)
I don't think my code's that horrible and I also often receive some useful suggestions, but most of the time they're nitpicks and modifications which aren't needed.
Under these circumstances I'm just continuing to accumulate code reviews on code reviews which nobody marks as "accomplished" after some initial reviewing steps... or they just die with a "let's discuss other approaches" sentence.
