    Not senior vs mid-level, but Helen Tran has an interesting opinion on senior vs junio designers:

    Over time, Designers accumulate a set of beliefs (like real life!) about why they’re doing certain things. This set of beliefs become their design philosophy and when you hire a Senior Designer, you’re hiring that set of beliefs.

      Hm good food for thought. I used to wonder why companies hire so many college grads despite existing talent in the job market. Then I made a similar realization to Helen's though at the opposite end of the spectrum - newer grads can be more easily "molded." Their lack of relative experience can be a great asset to companies looking to instill a certain culture or process.
