Network Engineer Reviews
Q: What is it like working as a Network Engineer?
"Communication Commissioning Engineer."
Pros: Love the opportunity to travel world-wide. I love that I get to do what I went back to school to learn; working with routers and switches, and making sure the network does its job by communicating to all devices as specified. I meet all kinds of people to work with on projects, whom I learn from.
Cons: Sometimes there are delays that impact my work. There can be down time between assignments.
Cons: The payment.
"Work flexibility, office conditions, stress level, perks, th."
"Troubleshoot Corporate Internet issues."
Pros: Flexible time, relaxed atmosphere.
Cons: No upward mobility.
Pros: Panama shift schedule means days off while others are working, enabling for personal errands to be done while others are working. Friendly managers, working environment is satisfactory.
Cons: I have been promised multiple training and certification opportunities, only to never receive them. Each promise is made when I begin looking for a new company to work for, by now it seems a ploy just to keep me where I am.
"Don't give up - Never surrender."
The best way to learn is by breaking stuff. If everything always works the first time around then you are just doing things by the book and it makes it harder to go into a messed up situation and resolve problems.
"Have multiple streams of income."
Be open to other non-traditional opportunities outside of the IT Industry.
