The job provides a fair deal of experience working as an installation technician and provides a lot of opportunities to work at project installation sites. However from the perspective of a project engineer with a design viewpoint, the majority of the equipment sold and installed is behind the times due in part to an unwillingness on the managers' part to depart from old design and components used since the company was founded, and also due to tight budget controls on part requisitions. The design process has been highly standardized and while this is favorable in the sense that it streamlines drafting, it hampers further development of new programs and controls logic because any attempts to experiment outside the standards are often discouraged and rebuked. The worst part of the job is that Systec goes through an annual 1-3 month dry spell in which the number of contracts sold drops significantly, so no work is available around the office and manufacturing department during these periods. The corporate culture is pretty relaxed among department peers, however rivalries between departments often cause issues and stifles communication. On a positive note though, project engineer and installation technician positions have low employee retention rates, so employee that sticks it out with the company long enough with be the one of the highest in their department's hierarchy on account of being one of the few that remain.
