How much idle time is normalLocked
The company I work for seems to find it normal to have it’s developers sitting idle for weeks at a time while projects are in the testing and deployment phases. It’s making me absolutely crazy. I always appreciate some slack time in which to do research, learn new things, etc., but this is beyond all limits. I’ve asked repeatedly for more work to no avail. This leads me to two questions, really.
First, how much idle time do developers spend on the job?
Second, since I’ve already asked for more work, how do I approach management about my lack of work without convincing them that they could do without me?
