h4xx3r138379dHolly.... I'm with you for the leave
Semmel12779dRun while you can. This is one of the worst stories I heard in years!
vlatkozelka290756dI don't wanna sound rude, nor am I saying that I know your situation than you do...
But, the project shouldn't matter to you, as much as it should matter how much you can make out of it for yourself. I'm not sure what exactly your role is in the project, from your description it's front end I guess... but anyway you sound like you're trying to solve all of it in one go.
No company will ever agree to 90% refactoring. Except Uber lol, they actually did a 100% refactor in parallel to their legacy project.
I was in a similar situation myself. I came to an agreement with the CEO that each ticket would be over-estimated. With the "over" time being spent on code-cleanup. O a ticket that takes a day, we'd be allowed 1.3 days, 0.3 days for code clean up, unrelated to the ticket itself.
If you can manage to pick up your front end team together, and at least clean the front end up, step by step. Then you'd be in for a great reward in the long run.
vlatkozelka290756dThat "tech lead" means nothing. No company would ever be like "don't fix my shit". If you manage to throw in some good examples here and there. Eventually your team will pick up.
At any rate, you have nothing to lose, you're leaving. So it might as well be the time to try an bypass that shit tech lead you're talking about.
Oh and screw React...
Native + Reactive architecture ftw. Just not React.
We are currently using RxKotlin/java with Android. And RxSwift with iOS. All native, with an architecture similar to Redux and MVVM (kind of a mashup), and it's been smooth sailing after a year of absolute garbage.
I wrote too much and forgot the point haha...
I wanted to say, that if your company realizes how shit the project is (mine did), and if you somehow manage to at least make a dent. The reward maybe worth it.
