Not all brother... I tell my team to slow down and do things right. Rushing only creates more work later.
palemajki923yI was a PM for a while and believe me - I loved my work, but I quit. Expectations are often too high and you are (as PM) the one to be blamed for everything. But, of course, there are nice projects, clients and bosses...
nperrin2783y@palemajki if you as a PM are the responsible for taking the requirements of the client, you should be also the responsible for putting the expectations to the client. (That's my thought for general cases).
If it's a big client and the PM it's doing what he can.. then I should be more comprehensive. Thanks for the perspective
palemajki923y@nperrin just so you understand me in 100% - I'm not excusing all the PMs. In fact, most I've met was really, really bad and narrow minded and the more I was into programming, the better I understood it. BUT, BUT! The whole 'we are cool agency' and 'you can drive a bicycle in our office' shit comes (at my former job) at a price of expensive projects (for clients) and unrealistic expectations (from bosses) and PM is fucked, whatever he / she does. Because client pays a lot and boss is at his side, no matter what.
God, I'm glad I'm not working in even half as cool company, as I used to...
