working for an engineering firm, I can tell you my biggest problem with GC's is usually their response to RFI's. 'course, then at least I have an NCN (Non-compliance Notice)
I thought the "6 phases of a project" were a list, then someone informed me it was supposed to be funny, heck I judge the completion of a project by them, with darned few exceptions. If you haven't heard them, you'll have to wait 'til Tuesday cause it's hanging over my desk, but the last two are:
5) Search for the guilty, punishment of the innocent.
6) Praise and honors for the non-participants.
Like I said, I thought someone had come up with a real good barometer of job progress attitudes.
