Been assigned to the team by management.

Management and I both know team members are junior/early-medium levels.

Management expects outcome.

After few weeks I clearly communicated that these engineers are unreliable. I can grow and coach them, but outcomes can't be guaranteed.

I was told it's my responsibility to deliver outcome anyway.

I was told they know it's unfair - but if whole team fails, it's on me to fix everything.

And most importantly: of course IT IS NOT MANAGEMENT FAULT OF ASSEMBLING TEAM OF WEAK ENGINEERS.

... placing me there should fix it "somehow"

    @heyheni I can. I just don't know if I want to. If rest of the team don't care, why should I?

    @bzq84 Because you're paid better, hopefully. If not, that's a good point for a raise negotiation.

    @Fast-Nop yes, I am. Fair enough.

    @bzq84 I have the same predicament, the assumption that you can train them to deliver in weeks rather than months is astonishing

    Is looking for another job an option? They are setting you to fail tbh even though you told them what would be the outcome.

    Also, don't put too much pressure on the juniors and don't tell them to cram it all on overtime, just try your best at training them.
