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

January 2015
"What to look for."
Electrical Engineer:
Find a company where you enjoy working and your work makes a difference.
February 2015
"Pros/cons."
Electrical Engineer:
Pros: The people. The benefits and the events.
Cons: How raises are handled and how they pay less than other big competitor companies. Or how they don't really care or reward employees accomplishments. No gratification, or motivation.
February 2015
"I would have gone accounting."
Electrical Engineer:
Hope that you like the idea of interesting work for low pay, and unpaid overtime. But the work is really interesting. So are my kids.
March 2015
"Sweat the Small Stuff."
Electrical Engineer:
Don't make a big deal about the little things, but grind them out so that others (particularly your boss) doesn't have to worry about it. By "grind it out", I mean automate where possible. Create efficiencies so that your boss can focus on higher level activities. Once they see that you have owned your space they will want that same level of grit on higher level activities. PEOPLE APPRECIATE THOSE WHO SWEAT THE SMALL STUFF FOR THEM! There is little risk, if you screw up then it's just the small stuff. But, if you seriously own it then you have shown value.
March 2015
