Stanley is able to cover many different projects while maintaining a high level of quality and letting little fall behind. He can adapt easily to manpower problems, and pick up new responsibilities. His tech manuals are top rate and recognized as such in the industry.
In retrospect, it’s true one doesn’t often earn leading status after one year OJT. As well, positioned as THE U.S. SYNTH OF CHOICE, I never thought it an option to reduce second rate stuff, and was never asked to. A lot of the work took too long, but that’s also because there was a lot of catch-up. Once documentation was integrated into the engineering process, speed on technical documents improved; and I was freed up to focus more on operation and ultimately, features.
