Background: I got this job through a very competitive selection process and therefore managers have big expectations on me.
We are a team of 10 people and me and one other of those 10 are designated for a specific area, which I already had worked with. So this guy has less experience than me in the area but of course more time in the company so he knows more about procedures etc.
On our first assignment after I got in I had to watch the procedure of his screen because I don't have access to everything yet. I thought that was ok even though I could the tasks myself.
In the middle of this our manager spoke to me and told me that I should take the leash and tell him what to do sometimes. Some time passed, we finished our assignment with me trying to help however I could. Always limited by the lack of access.
Now he(colleague) is assigning me what to do and updated a sheet with some administrative to do every week and he has me on the leash.
I am not sure what do here, I asked my manager for access 2 weeks ago and he told that would come naturally in time. I can't really do a lot of stuff without the access and sometimes I find myself asking the guy what to do.
Should I go straight to the manager and tell him about this situation?
