And before you know it, you’re being asked to meet management, and being told that all of your work is being scrapped, and that we’re starting over. How might you react? and don’t bullshit me that you would accept it with poise and grace. That you would be fine with having all of your work nuked, all of those 12 hour days hacking away at code for hours blown away. That it was all for naught.
You fired your top talent. I hope you’re happy.

In my experience, this is almost always a request from engineers. Especially if Rick’s code was such a mess to begin with, who wouldn’t want to be given time to start over with the latest tech and a better understanding of the final product? The key here is that the engineer is given the time and resources; which almost never happens.
