Discussion on: 'Years of experience' is a garbage metric

Reminds me of a bit I use in some of our internal training - "I've known people with 15 years experience, and I've known people with one year experience repeated 15 years in a row... at the annual dinner they get the same pin."

Gets an interesting mix of thoughtful and confused looks.

I can't claim it as original, I've seen various variations on that theme over the years.
