So i have been working as a graduate developer in this company i joined 5 months ago with some other graduates. I was on probation and it was supposed to end in near future but it got extended because " i was not being punctual". The feedback i got was " you are technically brilliant and have done all the tasks you have been asked to do but aren't being punctual and coming late to the office sometimes ".
I am indeed at fault that i sometimes enter the office late like 5-10 mins from the mentioned range. But whenever that has happened i always made it up while working late at work, this is my first job and even though i was being funny with the manager when we were discussing this i am not so happy right now, is it a big enough reason for extension ? Do you think if it can become a reason for termination ? Some other graduates have their probation extended cause of other reasons like late task completion.

Just need to understand how badly am i fucked.

    Sounds like a sweatshop.

    It could be justifiable if you constantly missed meetings or something actually important.

    Staying late doesn’t mean you can come in late. People should be able to rely on you. Like planning a meeting and not knowing if you will be on time?

    If you come in early and stay late often, I’m pretty sure noone will care if you come in late sometimes.

    If you have been missing something important like meetings or whatever then yes you are at fault... however if its just common everyday nagging then you should find a new job... but do remember if you come on time... leave on time!

    Don't worry about it to much mate, they just try to keep you on a lower pay as long as possible ;)

    @randomnumber i missed one meeting in the last 5 months and that was less about me being late and more about the calender not syncing, i think its more because my manager in a 1 to 1 mentioned it in a really informal way and i took it as if i was taking more time during the lunch time which i fixed but he meant in a general way so he got mad that i didn't fix it. They are paying is above the avg so i dont really think its about the money as most of the grads have been passed ( i think) except 4-5 due to different reasons.

    @smb26 the work place is pretty flexible with timings, the other day i had some important visa appointment so they allowed me to get back after 11 and if i am not feeling well i can take a day off or work from home moreover you can get in before 10. Seems like i messed up but didnt realize i messed up in time, i will surely fix this but i am bit stressed about this if this becomes the reason for termination.

    @smb26 the task deadline reason was for another graduate, for me it was the punctuality, i never missed a task deadline and thats what he even mentioned that my team is happy with my work and my lead gave a good feedback.
