comment Design flaws and dealing with humiliation from it
As a senior resource I should have known those things. I'm sure my team thinks the same too.

comment Design flaws and dealing with humiliation from it
The solution I put out wasn't contested by my team as they are all juniors. I was brought into the team to solve a problem that the team was failing at. Plus there was already the issue of bad design, code smells,etc. I was pulled in as the panacea to fix it all and make the customer happy. When I proposed this new design to our customer who has had more experience than me and of better quality too, I began to realize just as he was shooting it down that I made a fundamentally wrong decision somewhere. It was incrementally better than what the team had done, but still a lot in the red...

I should have known this. With the amount of years I have put in software development I should have known this decision would be bad, but unfortunately I didnt.. call it lack of experience or knowledge or both.. and thats my whole story.

I did not disagree. The solution I put out wasn't contested by my team as they are all juniors.When I proposed this to our customer who has had more experience than me and of better quality too, I began to realize just as he was shooting it down that I made a fundamentally wrong decision somewhere. Not only did I feel like a fool, I also feel like I let my team members down because they had put their trust in me and now I doubt they will do that. I don't blame them. I'd look at me with suspect if I were in their place.
