Tips

Keep your mouth shut

Cwolf112

The worst thing you can do when you're starting a new job is to mouth off on what you think is wrong with your company. That's a surefire way to lose a lot of respect and trust. Best to keep your mouth shut for a little while, till you're really familiar with the company and maybe make a list with your ideas so when they DO ask for your opinion to improve things, you're ready!
