Re: Set up to Fail
Had an interesting meeting with my boss yesterday.
However, after working on it since mid-January, some sections are not
acceptably finished. At the meeting, we outlined what was still weak and
today, he met with the CTO to get me additional resources. I just got off my cell phone with the boss.
His statement...and I paraphrase..."The CTO and VP of Engineering knew from the beginning that you couldn't get it completely done. They knew that nobody could. Two preceding writers quit without making any progress. However, they felt that since you are never satisfied with your own stuff, that you'd push yourself and everyone around you to milk the most that you could and they knew you wouldn't quit on it."
Anyone else ever find out that they were in a similar situation and how did you feel about it?
