My true self would never let the kind of incompetent decision making I constantly see among the upper management go unremarked.
No, you damn well cannot replace a veteran designer with 20 years of experience with a kid right out of college and expect the same kind of efficiency. You'd need to hire three, and get lucky, to come close.
But telling my boss that I know damn well I could do his job better in many respects isn't exactly liable to help my career. So yeah, I'm not sure what the point of this study is.
