Do not be like this little kid who did not see what was
coming. Large companies are complex beasts and in the first
few weeks the sheer amount of information you think you
need to absorb and the often critical decisions you need
to make can easily overwhelm you. A good manager should
help you filter what is important and what is not and help
you navigate the info-storm, but...you need get used to
the fact that for some time to come a lot of things just
aren't going to make sense to you that you really feel you
should have a good grasp on. It is OK. Do not panic.
