I took up a position with a company as a
contract-to-hire 9 months ago and they are going to make a
hire/no-hire decision in next month.
Now, we have a situation going on. We have a star Developer in the team who has been here for 10 years and he is clearly a bully. His code-reviews are mostly negative and he is not helpful at all. Now, this is not my opinion. Other team members also share that view but they kind of stay away from the trouble.
I have been thinking to talk to my manager about it but then call off on the idea thinking that I do not want to draw a lot of attention just before a major decision about my employment is being made. I can wait till I am a full-time employee. However, on the other hand I think that if I do not talk to my manager about it right now and I get hired then I have to live with this bully for a long time.
I have been debating this to my self for a long time and finally decided to put up for discussion. Any suggestions?
