comment How do you tell if advice from a senior developer is bad?
-1: So ridiculous. // The crux of your "controversial" opinion rests on the fact that the OP is caught up in minutiae or triviality. You don't know that! Take the question at face value.

@Rob P.: I can't imagine you would want to employ someone who, after voicing his opinion and being explained that A is better than B (even if he disagrees) he refuses to make the change. At that point, he really isn't 'working for you'.: I agree 100%. I gave you a -1 for the specified remarks. If you remove those remarks, I'll take back that -1 and agree that we're on the same page.

comment How do you tell if advice from a senior developer is bad?
-1: I have a boss, as far as I'm concerned my entire job is to make my boss happy. It's not to second guess decisions made outside of my pay-grade.: You'll never work for me. I don't hire 'Yes Men'. I want my direct reports to offer constructive criticism when I'm about to make a suboptimal decision. If I didn't value their opinion, I wouldn't have hired them in the first place.

@B Tyler: ...In my experience not knowing what is being developed is the seed of mismanagement. - 100% agree. We just disagree on the remedy.

comment Coping with an unfixable endless project
-1: Write clear functional specifications; pedantically - I strongly disagree because time and energy spent writing "pedantic, functional specifications" (that will quickly become obsolete) is time and energy that you can't spend writing functional unit tests that validate the code every automated build cycle.
