So, today I offically got handed off my first lead engineering project. I am inheiriting a project that 75% of the budget is spent, and 50% of the work is left to do. Trial by fire baby! Now I actually have to learn how to manage people who make more money and have more experience than I do without being offensive and/or dominearing. I think I may get through this without having anyone curse me out, but I wouldn't bet against it.
