How you view your work
|So that is what a lynch pin looks like|
What you learned does not apply to work
How you get the answers you need
Get used to politics and gossip
- Your team works closely with another team. A new feature is being developed that interacts with both teams. Your manager decides that your team will do work that offloads the more complicated work to the other team (even if you have capacity to work on it).
- You are assigned to work on a project that is clearly out of scope of your capabilities and get no resource you can reach out to for questions.
- Upper management relationships decide which teams get more resources. This either means more tools for you to get your work done or more time you need to spend in the office to get your work done on time.
- Friends with the manager get extra time for lunches and are allowed to slack off a little bit more at work without reprimand.
Learning shouldn't stop
