QuestionAs a programmer, what should you do when a programmer in your team keeps pushing bad code (that works)? Should you complain to the manager (who is not tech savvy) Pin

You didn't document the experience level of any of the developers involved.

If you were all juniors then I question the very assumption that the other two developers code was as good as claimed.

If she was a junior level and the others were senior then it was a failure in management. And if that was not brought specifically to the attention of management (the need for mentoring) then that is a failure for the seniors.

Also the description suggests that major functional pieces were being developed independently by each developer and nothing in the description suggests that formal or informal design sessions were carried out. Which again was probably a senior level failure. Technically in that situation then the delivered code is not 'bad' because the process is in fact 'deliver what works'.

I am not a great fan of developers that think their code will support future features when those features are not known. I have seen lots of complex code written like that where is did not provide any benefit and did in fact make maintenance much harder (and cost more.)

If you knew that the code would require it to work for a global market and she did not then there was a process problem.

If she knew it but did not meet the requirements then that is a different problem. And also does not really meet your original assertion that the code "worked".
