"Team Element, Being Part Of A Larger Whole, Very Rewarding."
Electrical Engineer:
Pros: Work flexibility is amazing, especially with a 9/80 schedule. Professional environment is very refreshing. Enjoy learning every day. Surrounded by people who will drop whatever they are doing to lend a hand or offer advice. When it does occur, the team-driven experiences are what I like the most.
Cons: Can sometimes get overwhelmed, which lends to operating in isolation, takes away the benefits of teamwork. Some aspects are out of my control, can only do so much. Accessibility of management varies quite a bit. 10 hours of "professional overtime" lends to an all or nothing approach. Lack of physical activity, or in general being able to put my hands on something vs. sitting at a desk working up documentation.

"Work As An Electrical EIT."
Electrical Engineer:
Pros: I like the ability to learn about new things and that the field is growing and will continue to grow and an high rate. That there will always be exciting opportunities with many new discoveries yielding viable employment options everyday.
Cons: I don't like the tediousness of how a lot of engineering companies tend to do their business. I want to be able to work at a place where we come up with exciting ideas that solve legitimate problems, not simple specify what cable runs where because of a certain regulatory requirement.
