Why do they do this to us ?? Several projects where I am the only one at execution level! I am learning a ton but it gets stressful !

@Strategy, they're actually causing the cost of the project to increase. Billing 60 hours at my rate is much more expensive than splitting the hours with someone at a lower rate.

Well then it's probably a staffing issue with not enough lower level people available !
