After all, if you have a bunch on non-engineering suits calling the shots and whose goal is to sell more buildings at lower cost and more profit, then I can see how engineering can be forced into a back seat (if any seat) in such a situation.  
The stupidity, though, of exposing your company to continued liability - especially with the "long-tailed cat" liability laws we have in the U.S. - is palpable.

It's one thing to work for a bunch of "stupid suits," and quite another to allow THEM to take YOU down with them in their folly.
