Small Developer Advice - Second Week
Started at a small developer a few weeks ago and I wanted to know what some other's did to keep track of different tasks and make the most of it. The firm has 4-5 people in different areas I work with on the development side (finance, legal, construction,, etc). There is another associate and we both work under someone, but there are also side tasks with other guys in the office. Seems to point to wearing more than one hat at a lean shop. Guys are there to help, but it's also a learn on your own environment.
- What have you done to stay organized? (I've used email reminders, notebook, sticky notes, and making a weekly to do list that I have it on my desk). No real tracking software.
- Candidly it is also an aggressive environment, anything to do to get used to that or does getting thicker skin come over time? (Assuming it does).
- Part of the first point, but how do you organize your emails?
- What to do about random non job related BS (help owners with any personal things they need) that as a part of the culture is what is expected and probably would not go over well if you declined so I don't think that's an option. - would never fly at a more corporate place, but at their own company there really are no rules, advice? Just part of the job?
