A day later, I am still rolling the conversation over in my head, finding new jewels. Granted, they're not pretty, shiny, healing stones. They are dark, poisoned stones. Did she think I didn't hear - or understand - the bit about hiring new engineers? Our new hires are always recent grads with little to no experience, they don't understand anything about designing systems. As evidenced by what happened last fall. Without an experienced, senior engineer, the projects are doomed: there will be cost over-runs and software may not even successfully achieve core capabilities. Without adequate technical staff, why should I bother?
