No, this is not about herbs and spices. Seasoned Manager has a long, storied career that began very low on the totem pole. He/she usually joined the company as a messenger or in some similar position and has laboriously worked his/her way up through the ranks, having been at the company for a long time. Seasoned Manager spends a lot of time reminiscing about what “the good old days” were like and can be slow to adapt to change. He/she has a lot of experience which can be a good or bad thing depending on the circumstances.
