"Working as an electrical engineer."
Pros: Different responsibilities everyday. Respect from others. Seeing the things that I design come to life. Trouble shooting problems on the fly.

Electrical Engineer in 91355:
Pros: The company is a very friendly, semi-family oriented company. Is understanding on family obligations but does expect exceptional work in a timely manner. Since its a small company I am on lots of projects and have many opportunities to learn different skills.
Cons: Some times expectations are a little too high and uncalled for on how quickly things should be done in.
Electrical Engineer in Flowood:
"Electrical Engineering Review."
Pros: I like that I have a flexible work environment doing something that I enjoy.
Cons: I feel like I have not received a deserved promotion but others have.
Electrical Engineer in Leesburg:
"Rewarding but undervalued."
Pros: The job is great when it comes to job satisfaction and challenge. There is always something new to design and watching your design being built is a great self esteem boost. The work is flexible and varied.
Cons: Government employers often under compensate employee wages and there are specific roles that are over paid. This glaring lack of employee compensation and an overall lack of employee retention makes government service a very niche career field. You have to want to give your time away for less than it is worth.
Electrical Engineer in Warren:
Pros: The experience I obtain justifies what I learned in school. Sometimes, it shocks me that much of the knowledge not applied directly in the work. I get some more training and feel more confident after 6 months working at the same company.
The testing is fun.I learn some more things that I could not understand well by reading textbooks alone.
I have tried some design with HFSS and CST which I never had access to while attending college. The future is bright for good designer.
After I am with my company for 2 years, I have been given more responsibilities and with my experience, I should have some room for advancing my career.
Cons: I still on contract with my company for 2 years now. Some of the training is not available to me. I don't have access to some important engineering documents and materials only available to full employees. I only have 1 week of paid vacation, no paid-time-off (PTO) or any other benefits.
