I start as a developer with growth of spring and java Ee. I do some integration of system for the pass 4 years. However, I decided to leave my old firm and join a new company and due to my existing pay, they promote me as a senior.
As I always do integration, the system structure are already build. Easily manuvour and understand where to pick and changed.
However my new current workplace require a system migration where I have to move existing behaviour to a new system which some of the libraries and function is not available in the new system.
It already went 3 weeks I don’t know the basic of how to manuver to their system and they wanted me to handle 1 module by my own and lias with other team to mentioned what is handled by my team or others. Problem is I don’t understand how the system worked.
Of coz based on my experience with spring and hibernate. I don’t learn full course thus I only know some of the annotations used on my previous company.
What should I do?
Do I talk to my manager( person who hired me) that I have some difficulty with my current situation and would require additional help and I be proactively ask question. Sometime I don’t know what to ask. And meanwhile I take some refresh course
Should I mentioned that I feel like a junior developer and would like to drop my senior role to be a junior and accept a huge paycut.
I find out that this company review is good and there are a lot of opportunity of learning new stuff which was why I left my previous company which I don’t learn anything.
