asgs809740dThis is not an easy situation to deal with. I had that kind of experience few years ago and only thing I managed to do was hand hold for a few more months
I wanted to shout at him, wanted to get him moved to another team and also wanted to report him to our manager. I ended up doing none of these. As in your case, he was a nuce fellow and was having a good attitude towards work. Though he showed progress, he was too slow
You might have to talk to him personally and teach a few things as to how work should be done. And you can ask your manager/senior to allocate one more mentor to divide the time and effort spent. Wish you both the best
24th-Dragon216640dTell me when you find out. Ive had a simular experience in my previous job.
It started of with hes new with this technology, but he is an experienced programmer and can pick it up quickly. Even thi i was a junior and literally started few months before him. He kept making the same mistakes over and over. I had to push him to the edges of our program so we can have a healthy foundation and me not having to rely on his code. He couldnt even format his code ffs its two fucking keys and the ide does it for you. I grew to resent him and ended up switching stacks to get away from him. I regret not speaking up against him because he just didnt improve and kept taking credit for the poor soul that ended up working with him and blaming him for every mistake.
My advice give him a chance, but speak up if he doesn't improve.
