I'm working directly with recruitment right now and can say the problem lies in the 'pick 2 out of 3' situation.
Pick 2 out of the 3:
- Candidate can commit the ideal number of hours.
- Candidate doesn't require training in skills you need.
- Candidate is somebody you can afford.
It is terribly difficult to find somebody who will fit all three of your specific quotas. I'm in the situation where nobody can decide their 2 most important qualities. The whole recruitment process becomes an absolute waste of everyone's time, including the candidate, as a result.

I tested the cache in my Xeon X5355, about 2Tb/s or so.
A good PM is invaluable. They are a multiplier. They work with you, and remove distractions and bottlenecks before they happen. You can absolutely see them pulling their weight.
A bad PM can be a disaster. Teams attached to the project will be out of sync, and everyone will be CYAing because the PM will be blaming everyone but themselves when you discover (too late) that something was missed.
Having worked with both, I'd much rather have no PM than a bad PM.
