Software Engineer Reviews

What is it like working as a Software Engineer?
Software Engineer in Winnipeg:
Pros: I enjoy the freedom to develop exceptional software used by hundreds of people.
Cons: Not much. At times I guess the lack of appreciation for what we do. Users tend to focus on the bugs and failures, not the successes.
Software Engineer in Peterborough:
"The People Are Great But The Workload Is Excessive."
Pros: The people are very kind and helpful. The small size of the business means lots of latitude in what skills I learn and what projects I undertake.
Cons: There's almost no project management or scheduling, so projects are generally late. Because of this, I am almost perpetually in crunch mode and working 60+ hours each week, with no compensation.
