35

Finished my first week at the new company. Fucking love it.

Monday.
Manager: we made a 3 week program for you, so you can get used to everything, adjust your pace, and when you feel ready, you can start getting real tasks.

*program literally contains plenty of 1hour meetings (had like 10 this week) with different people, also assignments that are intended to train me, but they have no value to the project (like think an imaginary field and add it to current application)*, except for last one which is to fix a real bug in their most legacy application.

Wednesday.
Me *to team lead*: do I really need to do those imaginary assignments, can I just fix that bug already?

Thursday.
Me: *fixes the bug* I am done!
Manager: congratulations on your first finished task!
Everyone else in the office: *starts clapping*

Friday.
*everyone treats me with respect*
*I get my second and third tasks*
*at the end of the day I go to the company’s own bar to get some free beer*

    @zemaitis @kgbemployee Thanks, guys.

    @waliurjs like @SauceBoss said - not worth it. But really, just move to some country with strong economic and put some effort to find a job, if you a actually good, then will find something similar. I know at least a few of those kind of companies, one of them - Mollie (Netherlands).

    @smb26 well, nice perks always come with some downsides. I already noticed, they have a pile of legacy code. What was it in your case?
