“Bill rate is the sole determining factor of right and wrong. Intellect, wisdom and logic are no match for an expensive bill rate.” – Warren Falk
The managers that are most respected have never admitted mistakes. This means that if one of your coworkers has a bill rate twice as high as yours, management will lend twice the credence to his ideas than yours. No matter how bad his ideas are, to accept the ideas of the lesser-compensated is to admit being cheated.
