    To me one of the worst things you can do is expect new designers to start "working" in the first hour of the first day. I think having someone sit, watch, and learn is the most valuable thing they can be doing for the first few weeks or sprints.

    Every organization functions differently, and it takes time to learn the vibe, speed, customs, and personalities of the process before jumping right in and trying to impress with your skills.

    It might seem like a "waste" of time, but I find it also saves from having to re-do work that was done prematurely.
