Since day 1 in this company, I felt something was wrong.
Maybe I am not the only one who felt this, since some manager spent a week only and left.
Anyway, the problem I am facing is that I was assigned two tasks related to two technologies I don't have any idea about. Instead of hiring specially skilled people on this area, they chose to convert developers with technical potential to work on these.
They didn't provide any training, and they prioritised a task (the easy one) over another of, and suddenly, without prior notice, they interrupted some meetings and rushed me to start producing in this technology I know nothing of.
Naturally, I responded that I can't do much and it's going to be a total failure. they shouldn't throw responsibility on a subordinate in such a chaotic way.
The escalation reached management, and all they did is to give me phone calls and tell me "talk to person 1, so that they talk to person 2, so that they talk to person 3, just try, just do whatever you can do ...".
Since the beginning of this new job in this project, I kind of foresaw this outcome, but I didn't really have a choice, and I wasn't sure yet, so I dove in.
All I can this of right now is that whether they secure the contract with the client or not, they will fire me, and that's how it felt.
My gut tells me that it's too much for mismanagement - they can't fail that way unless it's on purpose.
Am I wrong?
