Cost Estimating Manager Reviews

What is it like working as a Cost Estimating Manager?

Cost Estimating Manager in Los Angeles:
"Let Me Price That Up For You."
Pros: I enjoy finding projects to bid on. I enjoy taking a blueprint, measuring and interpreting what is needed, pricing and finalizing a proposal. The work is also mostly on computer so I am mobile and can work just about from anywhere there is an internet connection.
Cons: What I am being paid is the most frustrating part. I know I am worth much more but the economy hurt me and now my age can be a problem with companies.
