Nastrand1945y@SHA-16384 it's really not so much money, in my country is a lot but in the international market no. Also I was hired only as a developer and I don't think they will hear my complaints.
Nastrand1945y@tomtom that's right.
@Nastrand stick with it. It may take a few weeks or even months to pick things up. Sometimes things seem odd to start with but once you understand why they are done a certain way they may make sense. And after you've worked there a while and you earn their respect they will be more open to your suggestions for change, especially if you can explain why something is better.
"development must be done connected directly to the production database"
I must stop your right there.
Simply take your hands off the keyboard, look around, find your belongings, calmly pick them up and throw them in a bag, stand up, walk out of the building and leave.
On the way home browse some job boards, because you'll need to work to get money.
But under no circumstance should you do anything if you're forced to do it on production all the time.
People get shit wrong. We all do. Doesn't matter how much experience or smartness you have, you'll still make mistakes.
And it's a question whether the mistake costs you 1 hour, 1 day, or a broken production database and customers that sue the company and a boss that blames it all on you and your mistake.
