Project Manager, Engineering Advice

What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Project Manager, Engineering in Washington:
"Always seek wisdom."
Get several mentors on your team. One mentor for your engineering career, a mentor for your management role, know yourself and know your team's strength.

Project Manager, Engineering in Salida:
"Always thinking about projects."
Take into account that you will probably be working a lot in your spare time thinking about your projects.

Project Manager, Engineering in Columbus:
"Risk Management."
Identify the risks and plan for those you identify through either time, money or design.

Project Manager, Engineering in Orlando:
"Career Ceiling."
The career ceiling within Civil Engineering isn't as high as I had hoped. Unless you own your own business, you can only ascend so far and earn so much. That said, I take a lot of pride in my profession and am able to have a high level of identity with my work.

Project Manager, Engineering in Joliet:
Try to establish the ground rules up front and in writing. Go through as much education from the PMI ( Project Management Institute) as you can, or go for a master's degree in project management. There seems to be a glut of opportunity out there to do things better. As the baby boomer decision makers retire, more and more experience and discipline will be needed to fill the void. I see a greater percentage of projects with P&ID's and equipment layouts that are not right, when the project goes for construction. That usually means that the rest of the project from steel to electrical to piping and HVAC will either not fit or have to be changed at great cost when the process is finally properly defined. PDRI's with scores of less than 200 or better will help to some degree. Good luck and have fun.
