The situation is excerbated by the tendency of good support personnel to
climb the corporate ladder into systems/routing. Very often I've seen tech
support hired as little more than answerphone monkeys, naturally
encouraging those with an emerging clue to either leave or rise.
However, look at the twentysomethings now populating engineering teams:
many of the very best have been through what they regard as the "tempering
fire" of doing ISP telephone support. Is that a good indicator? I suspect
it's just a specific example of apprenticeship before mastery.
