Electrical Engineer Reviews

Q: What is it like working as an Electrical Engineer?

Electrical Engineer:
Working in a large franchised Hilton. There is always plenty to do on maintenance as it’s an old property. Investment into the hotel is not so good and this causes guest dissatisfaction. Working culture relies on the training and expertise you can bring in from previous employment. Expect to be thrown in. Wage is poor but fits the sector. Budgets stretched to breaking and it shows.

Electrical Engineer in Crawley:
"Make Connections."
I can't stress enough how important making contacts at your workplace is. It is vital to develop good relations at work which will not only help you with development within the firm but also a good reference when you want to leave.

Electrical Engineer in London:
Pros: The work time.
Cons: The carrier opportunities.

Electrical Engineer in Oxford:
"Enjoyable But Very Hard Work At Times."
Pros: I enjoy the responsibilities given to me and that I'm able to manage my own work schedules.
Cons: The amount of travelling I have to do at times, for example there was a 4 week period were I spent 14 days aboard and 14 days at home.

Electrical Engineer in Southampton:
"ORGANISATION."
START WITH AN OPEN MIND AND TRY TO STICK WITH IT.

Electrical Engineer in Ware:
"Experience is Critical."
It may be difficult but it is worth trying to get into a practice and complete your higher education part time. This will enable you to apply the knowledge gained. Also the job is considerably different to the principles thought at university (in my experience), such as creating technical drawings and specification documents.

Electrical Engineer in Oxford:
Pros: Various challenges. Every day is special. Busy but very satisfactory.
Cons:
