When in a new role how often is it ok to ask questions to manager for direction? There are things I am sure I can research to possibly find an answer. But asking manager would save a lot of time. Do mangers get annoyed when you ask too many questions?

If you think you can find the answer without asking your manager, try that first.

Good suggestions above. I’d add that I get annoyed when the same person asks the same question more than once (and is not looking for further clarification). When I take the time to explain something to you — which I agree is absolutely part of my job — I appreciate you writing it down or remembering it.

Batch questions and ask away! I’d much rather someone ask than operate under false assumptions.

I...usually don’t care if you’re asking me questions. If I’m getting crushed I’ll ask you to setup some time to go through them or ask for you to prioritize them to me on skype/mail. I worked under a woman who dunked on me, in a perf review, that I asked too many questions....as a consultant. I’ll never understand that mentality and I’ll never be that person, growing the talent behind you is one of the most important roles you have as a manager 🤷🏻‍♂️

Wow I wish i worked with managers that had that mentality. They don’t explain and expect me to know what I don’t know and then proceed to make condescending remarks or make me feel stupid about it.
