"Perks of a Senior Software Engineer."
Senior Software Engineer:
Pros: Software Engineering is about automation and/or creating something new. It involves some amount of creativity, discipline and order. In software engineering, you have a chance of creating something and watching it being used by others. This by itself gives us a happy feel. Other benefits include: - Pay is comparatively good. - Zero physical effort and risk. - Work Flexibility (depends on project but in general its normally there). - Corporate Culture.
Cons: A lot depends on the management of your company. - There can be tough deadlines set by impractical clients/ management. - Job security may vary based on the company and management and based on the present economic situation. - Promotions may depend on other factors other than ability of a software developer. - The teammates can be aggressive especially when the team is not in-sync with each other and management is not capable to handling the scenario. - In the service industry, showing off does play a factor in promotions.
