Senior Systems Engineer (Computer Networking / IT) Advice

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

Senior Systems Engineer (Computer Networking / IT) in Belleville:
"Company Culture."
Organization might be challenging at higher levels as Management is relatively younger aged in the Technology Department and still working on their professional growth in terms of communication and learning to support your role.

Senior Systems Engineer (Computer Networking / IT) in Canton:
"It's all about the money."
Extreme performance merits fair compensation, so when employer underpays you and treats you only as a cost center then employer does not value you. You should *NEVER* be where you don't belong, and you don't belong where you aren't valued. You have value - work for someone who recognizes this.

Senior Systems Engineer (Computer Networking / IT) in Los Angeles:
"Don't Stop Learning."
If at any point you're tired of learning new stuff, it's time to get out of the game. You need to be learning new programming languages, new technologies and new systems forever in this field. Part of your job, maybe as much as half of it should just be keeping on top of whatever is new in the field.

Senior Systems Engineer (Computer Networking / IT) in San Diego:
"Communicate status to customers to reduce stress."
Some Systems Engineers like to work alone, and get things accomplished without interruptions, but customers always appreciate status updates.

Senior Systems Engineer (Computer Networking / IT) in Norwalk:
"Hard work pays off."
Always work hard and continue to teach yourself new technologies.

Senior Systems Engineer (Computer Networking / IT) in New York:
"Keep Learning - Gain as Much Experience As Possible."
Learn as many IT disciplines as possible. Do not get too comfortable in one position, for one company, if it means that doing so will stunt your growth as an IT specialist. Never be afraid to challenge yourself. If it means succeeding in the future, make a lateral move into a new position (you do not always have to go up the corporate ladder. Going to the side and then up later is more than possible). Get your certifications, if you do not have them now. Keep the certifications you have now current. IT is always changing, so stay on top of those changes.

Senior Systems Engineer (Computer Networking / IT) in Fayetteville:
"You will always be employed if you take pride in your work."
Being a systems engineer is an ever changing career. To keep up with technology and to be ahead of your peers, you must have a lab environment at home. Good internet searching is critical; you don't always need to know every detail about a technology, but you must be able to find a valued source.
