How long is reasonable for onboarding?
Really need your input here. I started a new job and I am responsible for overall operations. This is a new field for me and my boss knows this, but expects that in 90 days I will come back with a very robust recommendation on staffing, processes, etc.... It's a very large organization and I'm not being given a lot of guidance on who to speak with to get information, etc.... So, I'm doing what I think is right. I told him that it's an aggressive timeline and I don't know if I'll be comfortable making meaningful recommendations when I feel I need at least 90 days to understand their current structure and staffing. He says we can keep talking about it. I am completely overwhelmed and after 8-9 hours a day of back to back meetings, my brain is beyond full and nothing is coming together. HELP!
