Software Engineer Reviews

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

Software Engineer in Winnipeg:
Pros: I enjoy the freedom to develop exceptional software used by hundreds of people.
Cons: Not much. At times I guess the lack of appreciation for what we do. Users tend to focus on the bugs and failures, not the successes.

Software Engineer in Peterborough:
"The People Are Great But The Workload Is Excessive."
Pros: The people are very kind and helpful. The small size of the business means lots of latitude in what skills I learn and what projects I undertake.
Cons: There's almost no project management or scheduling, so projects are generally late. Because of this, I am almost perpetually in crunch mode and working 60+ hours each week, with no compensation.

Software Engineer in Vancouver:
Deliver what you promise on time with good quality and you will progress quickly.

Software Engineer in Ottawa:
"Get a government job while you are a workterm student."
If you want stability, gov is the way go go. Only way in is through workterm.

Software Engineer in Montreal:
"Great."
Pros: Excellent people. Fun technology.
Cons: High stress environment.

Software Engineer in Victoria:
"Follow your best career path"
Make sure your first job is a step in the right direction; don't settle for a job that's not quite what you want to be doing. Each job should add a step to your career. When you are in a development group do your best to get to know the software, in the office and on your own time as well. Try the software as an end user, and read the code till you understand it. It will pay off in the end.

Software Engineer in Vancouver:
"Stay Current"
It is important to stay up-to-date with the latest trends in technologies. I love HackerNews.
