Slaves2Darkness: studebaker hoch: Most programmers specialize in not doing anything 75% of the time.

You can have me do nothing for 75% of the time and keep me at your company for around 6-10 years or you can have me work 100% of the time, including the extra over time you demand and have me at your company from anywhere between 6 months and 2 years.

Any place that watched how much "work" I did and was always pushing for more was never a place I could stand to stay at for very long. Often I would walk off the job with a big "fark you!" right in the middle of something they thought was extremely important. On the other hand places that did not give a shiat how much I "worked" as long as my assignments were completed I stay at for a long time.

Forcing programmers to "work" 100% of the time means you are going to  chew them up and spit them out quickly requiring constant retraining, because no programmer is effective until they have had six months to learn your business.

Honestly, it's not doing nothing, it's internal brainstorming.  Start with a random class or function, get halfway through it, roadblock, fark off for 20 minutes and "Ah Ha!" and all of the sudden I can finish writing Kubla Khan
