Q: What is it like working as an Electrical Engineer?
"What to look for."
Find a company where you enjoy working and your work makes a difference.
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.
"I would have gone accounting."
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.
"Sweat the Small Stuff."
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.
Pros: Management is good, culture of company is good.
Cons: Repitition of daily activities.
Pros: THE team of work.
Pros: There is a lot of room for improvement, that means my skills are relevant.
Cons: Too laid back environment.
