Q: What is it like working as a Project Engineer?

Project Engineer in Calgary:
"Energetic working environment."
Pros: There is a unique culture here. Helpful people, fun atmosphere, casual attire. We all work as a part of the team, not for individual goals. Low stress, fantastic flexibility, and a good sense of satisfaction.
Cons: Sometimes it feels like new hires are very underqualified.

Project Engineer in Vancouver:
"Managing Every Aspect of A Project."
Pros: -Mostly unsupervised, allowed to work flexible hours. -Get to manage people, projects, etc. -Easy to move up quick if you work hard. -Lots of opportunities to learn. -Never a day that is the same. -Choice of indoor or outdoor work every day.
Cons: -Long working hours. -Lots of responsibility and blame. -Your decisions need to be made in a timely matter, doesn't depend on your life, depends on how the project is going. -Working out of a site trailer makes it hard to concentrate.

Project Engineer in St. Catharines:
"Do it for yourself!"
If you go to any engineering school seeking fame or fortune quit. Engineers in most circles are revered as know it all's who get everything wrong, by operators, constructors, and technicians. This is probably due to engineers who know how to take tests so that they may get a job one day and command a salary and notable respect and have no real passion for what they do. When in fact these type burn out or tend to make huge mistakes or are ignorant to others who may not be engineers but offer years of experience instead which misrepresents the engineering profession. My advice is be passionate in what you do, and source out all intel available as it may save your job someday. Most engineers are paid low when compared to their responsibilities/liabilities ( a welder in Alberta makes more than the engineer who designs the systems they're assembling), so those who are doing this line of work better enjoy it.

Project Engineer in Caraquet:
"Be accurate...stay put and get er done."
Be accurate as for bidding...time schedule realistic...quality control.

Project Engineer in Calgary:
"Think ahead"
Consider early how your current choices may impact your long-term career.

Project Engineer in Oakville:
"A Day As A Project Engineer"
Pros: I like the responsibility level, trust by management to work independently, variation in engineering design and types of projects. The flexible hours, dress code and family type atmosphere.
Cons: Not enough pay to justify responsibilities. Annual pay increases are small. No vision in benefits or a pension plan. Little to no upgrade courses our training invested in employees. No shift premiums for overtime. Limited advancement opportunity.

Project Engineer in Oshawa:
"No cost of living raises"
Little or no opportunity for raise at contract negotiation. What rate you come in at is what you make forever. Those hired after you with less experience will make more. Flex hours make this a great job for young patents so this is the trade off you make.
