Are you frustrated by being in a large software development group, and you’re a minnow? You’re working on a very minor, specialized, sub-component of another element 4 layers deep in a program module?
You’re having trouble getting motivated to work on your assignments when the focus of the software program or SaaS platform appears to benefit some internal accounting application for enterprise clients. You want to work for a company that is changing the world, impacting people’s lives, and helping your users improve their personal success. You want to be proud of where you work when you brag to your friends and family about the company.
The head of the development group doesn’t know anything about you other than your name which he forgot last week. You’re just another cog in the machinery. No one has laid out a development plan for you to move you in quantum leaps forward in your career. There is no coaching, training, guidance of how to become better and more effective. You’re not in an environment that values personal growth and helping you to reach increased capability.
You had dreams of rapid learning, high personal growth, intellectually challenging work, and being a BIG fish in a small pond. You had visions of driving change, winning awards, and being viewed as a hero by other programmers, developers, and engineers whom you were asked to mentor.
