comment How do you handle your Project Manager
@Gabriel McAdams, the goal of negotiation is not to make both parties happy. Most often the goal is a compromise. An agreement is reached but neither party is really happy with it. Negotiation is also only useful where both parties are reasonably matched in terms of negotiating power. If a boss says "do this or find another job" this is no negotiation.

@Ugly American, is something missing from that Bill Gates quote? It doesn't make sense to me. ie Measuring aircraft what by weight?

comment Boss doesn't believe my time estimate… advice/backup?
Great answer! Have we worked for the same companies? It's all about over-promising and under-delivering isn't it?

comment What to bring to a programming interview?
Not all inteviewers looking for code will ask for it in advance. Bringing code with you is no less rehearsed then performing some stock standard coding problem. We are talking about "Programming positions" here, if you can't code, I couldn't care how good a communicator you are.

comment What to bring to a programming interview?
+1, it's not just about reading the code, it's how the person talks about it, design issues, the thought process used to create the code. Unfortunately with the low standard of programming in general, even showing decent "trivial" code will demonstrate you are above average.
