github100663yWelcome to DevRant.
Always on working mode is indeed tiring. I have been in that phase.
You can try to take to your mentor or manager with valid points if you think something is correct, in case in team meetings no one is listening to you
It happens many times that being a junior dev, you have to find your way up, struggling and fighting daily to grow better. And it's always difficult, but your hard work always pays off.
Try to think of a role or company that you wanna join. And look how working here will help you develop for that role. It sounds easy to give such advice, but it's really difficult to follow up. I am stuck myself following this and finding ways to be able to include what I want to learn into my work tasks.
That's the thing, one of current goals is to work for a small company/possibly start my own in due time. Which entails knowing a breadth of knowledge and experience is across the development spectrum. Both of which I'm working through every day.
And I did mention it to the client, mentor and manager. Mentor and manager sided with me entirely (great!), but the client is set on the desired outcome of the project and there's means of budge it, although if I'm successful it might be enough to tip them over the edge and then whoever works after me wouldn't have to deal with nonsensical tech stack I'm coupled with... Plus it's months past turning point and at least I can say I've tried everything in my power
Im in the same boat. Just moved 300 km for first junior dev job, underpaid, shit company and shit project.
But at least the co workers are nice.
And i am also underpaid.
I also want to make my own company, working for somebody else is just not a long time solution for me. Im trying to learn everything i can about how to lead a company but its difficult...
