Hi guys,I've just had the news that I haven't passed on my probation at work, my manager said that they need a more senior engineer. I entered in the company without a JD, and when I entered they gave me the project on an HD and nothing more. my manager never answers me and no onboarding is provided or training, the communication in this company is terrible.It's like this? company's just leave you on the blank? I can't understand, I ask for answers, and they send an email with the probation end.

Some of this is normal some of this is weird.

They don't use version control or what? Mistake I would expect from a college student, not a tech firm. Very strange, makes me question their competency

As far as the hands off approach. It's normal for more Sr engineers in tech firms to be given vague directives and expected to figure things out. It's not easy, which is why many people never make it past mid level.

That said, if you are asking good questions and getting ignored you are being hamstrung. Now if you're asking a million questions, 80% of which you could figure out on your own then your boss probably doesn't have time for it

I asked for help from the old employee, the manager said to solve myself because it’s not even a option.
He said “you need to hit your head on the wall and solve it.” I was just like: what? I’ve stayed because need the job, but I was seeking to change anyway. I think it’s better that way

Sorry they didn't create an envirnment that fostered growth for you. A lot of tech requires rugged individualism to survive. Unfortunately a lot of teams aren't setup to mentor and teach. It isn't impossible just hard. You can find good mentors on online communities.

That is just poor management. Are you able to go to HR in person? Have you documented their practices in relation to you and other co-workers? Was the position advertised as entry-level or was it clearly represented to you? It has to be very frustrating and I am sorry this is happening to you.

A good manager will be able to describe exactly what is expected of you and will give you all you need to solve this task including answer any questions you may have. It’s about supporting you and ensuring you understand the environment, set up, configuration and what the task is.

These guys sound like they want you to be able to read their mind. It’s like going to a restaurant and when the waiter asks for your order you say, “can’t you figure it out?”

You deserve better treatment and support. I’ve dealt with many people like this but usually it’s not a winning situation except to try and get a better job.
