Pros: consistantly improving technology, colleagues, fair compensation.
Cons: too much travel, little opportunity for advancement.
With my current employer, my days are hardly typical. I am generally traveling throughout my region and occasionally the nation to work on multiple technologies through multiple platforms has been both challenging and rewarding. I have taken my acquired experience and have applied it to a role as an educator in the Product Support Department in addition to my Field Service responsibilities.
The hardest part of my job is the travel. It is for a true road warrior. And being in the field makes career advancement extremely difficult.
The most enjoyable part of my job is working with great people, both customers and coworkers. My counterparts in the field and at the home office are both knowledgeable and very skilled. I also enjoy the new technology my company regularly rolls out. The Engineering Department is very skilled.
