Same can be told about some seniors.

I have seen and been in both sides.

When I was junior I corrected buggy software from seniors, and being senior a trainee of mine showed me something I had buried in my code that could have blown up the application in a chain process if a serie of conditions had met.

I agree that experience is a master and that in a big %, senior means better quality. But there are no absolute values.

If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
