FULL DISCUSSION
 

I work for a company of 60, and just three years ago the number was closer to 6. In other words, we've been experiencing dramatic growth, and it comes with all kinds of challenges. When I arrived last October, much of the code base had never been looked over on site, and I questioned what I had gotten myself into. Now we have new developers, and we've been able to add some navigation to this rocketship.

Also, a 20-year-old company will come with some things you'll just have to ask for insider knowledge to understand. When you find a column in an old table that is named something like unused_field_1, it's best to ask the person who's been around from the beginning to tell you a story (and the stories are always great!).
