There is a comment on this question suggesting that the question should be closed. I was very surprised by the reason given:
I'm fairly certain that since this does not involve any sample of code, but a situation in which you are discussing a job about situations wherein you code, that this is indeed off-topic. I agree that the workplace board is a better place to get an answer to a question like this.
Please answer with your opinions on this so we can see a clear community consensus on whether source code is required to make a question on topic.
