"The best job I have ever had."
Pros: There is so much good with my job that I can't list them all. Top 3? 1. Challenging and fulfilling work. 2. Great salary, benefits and flexible work regime. 3. An understanding boss.

"Varied technical role with much responsibility."
Pros: Input into all levels of the engineering development process. Good opportunity to progress to engineering managemeent. Direct liaison with OEMs. Significant level of resonsibility. Ability to get more involved in activities which are of personal interest.
Cons: Management of project plans and cost spreadsheets is not always very interesting. Involved in technical developement discussions and decision making but do not carry out the technical actions (detailed design, CAE etc.) However this is expected from this type of role. Can be involved in company politics. May be ultimately responsible for some programme failures (engineering related).
