I am certainly not the one to help you, but just be happy that they don't tell you to sit down and shut up in meetings where you were invited for your technical experience, yet you have the audacity to point out that you can't have 56 columns in a key and tables can't have 2500 columns and you really REALLY don't need to have table names that are 512 characters long (oh... and ya know... DATE isn't a good name for a column.)

So, what do I say to these managers???? I am more help on this in all areas but since once the issues are identified (which I am one of the persons who finds and is able to generalize into a more concrete problem and find patterns across the database ), analysis is done (which I often help with), business requirements specified (which I often ask pertinent questions for to get clarification), I am the last guy holding the bag writing the clean-up process - which is actually done speedy quick - but since it is the last thing in the overall process it looks like I have had lots of time to do this.

Very frustrating. How do I help managers to understand this????
