Q: What is it like working as a Senior Systems Engineer?

January 2015
"Stress Levels are high, High pressured enviroment."
Senior Systems Engineer:
Pros: Working Hours, Flexibility, Team is great.
Cons: Too Much pressure, long hours, under paid.
February 2015
"Culture of Lies, Secretism, and Good Ol' Boys."
Senior Systems Engineer:
Pros: The pay check is the only saving grace. And only barely.
Cons: Annual performance review and discussion is a waste of time and energy. It's all about favorites and being young or retired military, not about actual performance, attitude, or skills. If you are not at least at the Principle Engineer level by age 45, your prospects for any significant advance in pay or position are near zero. You'll never be assigned more than a "Meets Expectations" rating. You'll be lucky if you are not let go before early retirement at age 55. You will lose any real and meaningful skills by working at this company.

"Great company but underpays."
Senior Systems Engineer:
Pros: The good is everything but the pay.
Cons: They pay below the national average. HR keeps running "salary survey's" and they insist they are paying average. I've seen so many people leave the IT department making 20-30% more. I think they need a better survey provider.
August 2015
"VMware, Windows & Backup Administrator."
Senior Systems Engineer:
Pros: Latest technology and exposure to IT.
Cons: Multi tasking and less compensation.
October 2015
Senior Systems Engineer:
Washington Senior Systems Engineer Salary: $111650 (average) - 10.0% above national average. 531 Senior Systems Engineer Salaries from anonymous.
October 2015
"I Wish I had Know This Questionnaire Would Become a Full-Ti."
Senior Systems Engineer:
Get your money up front. Next step.
March 2016
"Rewarding work, but company going downhill fast."
Senior Systems Engineer:
Pros: Engineer radio systems for public safety and commercial markets around the world. It's rewarding that the general public benefits from our work and lives are saved.
Cons: Company has been downsizing for 2+ years, decreasing benefits, and replacing work tools with cheaper, less quality versions. Everyone has been on pins & needles wondering who will be laid off next.
