in thread (OT) On starting a new job

Corollary to "No-one cares how good at programming you are." is "no one cares if you have good ideas".

Dilbert said recently that stress is caused by thinking people care about you. Very true. No one does unless you've made actual friends. It's all about advancement and your ideas are usually a threat or make someone else have to fix their stuff. Ugh, I hate it.

    "no one cares if you have good ideas"

    It's not that I don't care if you have good ideas. No! Really! I do want to hear them. ... Just not right now. Not when you are supposed to be fixing a defect. No, really! Fix the defects you have assigned, then we can discuss your ideas to make the applications more "efficient".

    Make the application work before you try to optimize it!
