Rate Your Software Development Team

My most favorite Joel Spolsky column is The Joel Test. This is a "highly irresponsible, sloppy test to rate the quality of a software team".
12 simple Yes/No questions are asked about your software development team.
A score of 10 or lower means "serious problems" according to Joel.

I've gone through the list several times and I'm afraid I have to award my current company a 6 :(

In his post, Joel asks his readers to post their companies' scores. You're welcome to do the same (although I recommend omitting the name of your company).
