Civil Engineering Technologist Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Civil Engineering Technologist?

Civil Engineering Technologist in Nanaimo:
"Survey/Civil Technologist."
Pros: - Independence. I have been responsible for all survey projects and their execution from the preliminary phase to project completion. - Flexibility. Small firms mean small commitments to a rigid schedule. With the ebb and flow of work, as long as I stay ahead of schedule I can take time off without qualms. -Challenging. Having only seven employees means gaining proficiency in an array of job responsibilities.
Cons: - Pay. I have a year of direct experience in my field, but have surveyed for 5 years beforehand. I do not feel my qualifications are complimented by my salary. -Lack of direction. Two resident engineers have perpetually full plates, so getting the appropriate answers to close out projects can be an exercise in patience. -Lack of upward mobility.... You get the picture.
