Re: Nice systems
Thank you for your comment.
I do agree that there's definitly a disconnect, specially when the expectation is not realistic.
From what I've seen, this really depends on the are that you're engaging. Within IT, everybody is aware that there's a ramp up period, that can be as short as a day to even a couple of weeks before a person is fully productive.
Other times, the hiring manager is so disconnected from how IT procurement runs, that he assumes that on the day the employee starts, things should be up and running straight of the bat.
There really isn't a clear answer, and many times this does lead the new hire to re-think the job offer since they're already being told there late on a deliverable.
