Beware of whom you are replacing
I was hired by an unpopular director to replace a very popular developper, which he was in conflict with. Of course I wasn't told. A total mine field. I was the enemy of the developper pool right before my first word. So every time I suggested something the director was tapping me in the back, but the other developpers just stayed silent...without giving any feedback...with long faces.... My advise, keep complete radio silence during the first days and pay a lot of attention on the non verbal language expressed by people around you. Make affirmation which you can back from by using words like "I think it could..." "Its seems like...", etc. And pay attention to the "rictus" (smile) of people. It it goes downward while you are in the room or while talking, then there is definitely a problem with that person.
