rutee071428326dMy problem with working in large companies is bureaucracy and the fact that despite the fancy titles of your co-workers, they are often less competent than the developers you'd find in smaller companies. They brag about their standards when all it does is slow everything down and give you a sense of being elite working for them. The tasks are broken down into so little pieces the same way Jesus divided one bread and gave it to all the employees who were hired because the company has so much money to waste and had to brag about their company's growth in number of employees.
All of these stress out the very few competent developers that work for them.
UnicornPoo27226d@rutee07 yep the bureaucracy was terrible. My first week there I had to write a business case to have development tools on my PC, even though my job title was developer.
They wasted so much time filling in forms and having meetings as people’s time wasn’t counted as a cost but then wouldn’t spend a penny on training because it was too expensive.
nibor309926dSometimes the bureaucracy is just rubber stamping. When I needed to give a business case to get local admin rights, I just put "to develop code", it got approved ok
