Q: What is it like working as a Project Manager, Engineering?

October 2014
Project Manager, Engineering:
Try to establish the ground rules up front and in writing. Go through as much education from the PMI ( Project Management Institute) as you can, or go for a master's degree in project management. There seems to be a glut of opportunity out there to do things better. As the baby boomer decision makers retire, more and more experience and discipline will be needed to fill the void. I see a greater percentage of projects with P&ID's and equipment layouts that are not right, when the project goes for construction. That usually means that the rest of the project from steel to electrical to piping and HVAC will either not fit or have to be changed at great cost when the process is finally properly defined. PDRI's with scores of less than 200 or better will help to some degree. Good luck and have fun.

"Project delivery and peoples managment,"

Try to understand the practical challenges of the team and try to fix them at the earliest.
October 2014
"Manage Risks, Changes And Costs Appropriately."
Project Manager, Engineering:
Detail your schedule well, know and advise of the risks and cost/schedule impacts as soon as possible to allow for adjustment (where possible). Clear communication is a must, both with your internal and external stakeholders in order to prevent customer disappointment. Engage your stakeholders early and often and keep them accountable. Stay positive!

"Career Ceiling."
Project Manager, Engineering:
The career ceiling within Civil Engineering isn't as high as I had hoped. Unless you own your own business, you can only ascend so far and earn so much. That said, I take a lot of pride in my profession and am able to have a high level of identity with my work.
