Did I really know what I was doing?

I’ve just started at a new company a friend of mine works for, he thinks I’ll do well, but I’m not so sure yet. I’ll be honest, I really don’t know anything about the products, what the capabilities or really anything about the industry. What I do know is project management, how to manage a project from start to finish and the basics of the cabling used. The systems are mainly MS based, which is a little disappointing, but not unexpected given where most of the developers are located and where they came from.

This is supposed to be temporary, all things considered I don’t really like the job, but I’ll do my best. Even though most of my colleagues are young in both age and… well age. I’m low man on the totem pole so I don’t have a lot of say in anything procedural, even though I see some gaping holes in their systems I’m not listened to. Not surprising, but still bothersome. Oh well, there’s nothing I can really do about it but play along.
