New Job Pain

Well, two days down and an unknown number to go. Things have gone from worrysome to horrifying to depressing over the last 48 hours. As I get up to speed on how the "software" they wrote works, and this thing they call an "architecture", I get more and more frightened.

I think the last two days of stubling around in the dark have been more stressful than any at O'Neil -- at least at O'Neil I knew that I could make a positive impact and get things done. At Standard Register, I'm afraid that the damage (organizational damage) was done so long ago by so many clueless people that no one person could "fix" it, even with three years and a team of smart people.
