I think the last sentence is really a bit too harsh. Humans are naturally curious, and this extends to all of us, including the management team. But curiosity should be grounded in reality. Thought experiments should remain as thought experiments unless you have the necessary resources to carry them out.

Some of the projects now, I would say, are akin to a General asking his medics to perform a commando raid on an enemy outpost. The medics are specialists in their fields, but they are clearly not trained as special forces. The General thinks this is not an issue, and simply request the medics to ask the commandos for some advice on how to perform the raid. He then expects the medics to perform the raid. Not only that, he still expects the medics to perform their medic duties at the same time while preparing for the raid. Such thinking is actually rather pervasive.

This is civil service. Your pay is at a discount to private sector. Unlikely you will see a bump unless your are currently underpaid.

Unregistered I attended mas interview (2 rounds) recently. Quite a closed-minded /traditional-thinking bunch. Glad I didn't join.
