|First of all... I think you are answering to the wrong person, or you did not read correctly what I said.
I didn't say that most students are better. I answered to the previous message:
Quote:Not a chance. But their arrogance and a dash of ignorance makes them think they do.
When I was junior, I could not code better than my senior, but I got over him pretty fast. He was lazy, no maintenance of the code, Copy+paste and then block / comment sections instead of cleaning up, variable names without any convention and many other more... and he was senior.
He could still solve more problems than me due to knowledge and experience, but I could code better than him.
I never said that. I just said, that there are students than can be better, not that all / most are. It is a substantial difference.

Then I have broken several statistics, because I have already met some terrible seniors (sadly not only one or two)... by customers / suppliers and so on, and not only in my area of expertise or in technical departments, I found them in other departments (finances, marketing, HHRR...) as well.
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
