About my job: I work as a System Engineer in an international company. In addition to the usual engineering stuff I am responsible for a few applications which I develop. In the 1 1/2 Years I have been in this position the state of the art has improved in terms of documentation, stability and features.
Today in a meeting with my manager I was told that my communication with coworkers is lacking. Unfortunately he was not willing to give me an example to avoid exposing the people who gave that feedback.
I am a pretty introverted person, I like to work independently and try to enable my coworkers to do the same.
If something happens a few thousand users are impacted and by default at least half the department is involved including my direct superior. In these cases it´s basically impossible to not communicate... When I get assignments or feature requests I get the work done in the requested time frame and communicate possible delays and problems to the people that need to know. When I come across information that I recognize as having an impact on the work of my coworkers I let them know. In general I felt my communication was sufficient and did not get feedback that suggested otherwise until now.
Long story short: what amount of communication do you expect from your coworkers and do you have any general tips on what one should pay attention to if he is looking to improve his communication with his coworkers?
