10/7 marks the first month of my grad school career. Over the past month, I saw a lot of things and experienced a lot of things. One of those is speed in research progress.
My fellow scientists on this forum probably understand well that research is never a speedy process. Rather, it's an iterative process of observation, hypothesis, trial and error. It all takes time before you finally conclude anything, but... the boss man wants progress, fast, and publish those progress, fast.
The quality really gets compromised. When will people ever slow down and think? Outsourcing is not the solution.
