We are a team of 5 guys. I am newest one among the team and a starter (been with them for about a year already)
I have two issues here:
Whenever I try to voice my ideas/opinions during meetings they are abandoned/ignored. The team is dominated two senior people who just discuss among themselves wok which is to be done while the other two are dormant. That makes the situation very demoralizing.
We have the most senior member of the team, who often ends up writing all code himself and has no idea on how to handle pair programming. At the same time our manager always wants us to work in pairs. Whenever it ends up that I need to work with him, he just asks me to work on something else and shows no interest.
What should be the best course of action I could take to resolve these issues?
