I've been working in this company for six months, and it's getting more and more confusing as the time goes by.
I'm working in a geo-spatial consultant company, which is related to GIS, laser scanning and aerial photogrammetry. At first, I was working as a programmer (probably the only one), and the only thing I need to do is to take care any request from all my co-workers. My manager had promised me the job content is just this simple on my first day. No routing works, no data-processings, and no project to handle.
Last November, however, I was asked to analyze a project which had totally gone wrong. I didn't think much of it because I was majoring in geo-spatial in college. After fixing every filthy thing, this Feb., I finished fixing it on my own with a little program I developed.
Both my manager and the chairman of this company were pleased. The chairman even gave me a raise, and told me that my position in this company will be a system analyst for all departments, and no routing works as it was.
I must admit that it was the sense of achievement that makes me happy. But things started to change. Since there're no request from my co-workers and not being told to analyze anything. My manager asked me to do some QC on our product(e.g. maps and digital elevation models).
All these products have one thing in common, they're limited in quantity. After QC is done, I have nothing to do. Some of my co-workers start to keep distance from me, and others started to say something like:
How about lend us a little helping hand on routing data processing, Mr. Not-so-busy? We'd like to get off on time like you do.
I don't know if I did anything wrong. And I don't know what should I do. It's just getting really really confusing.
