Where are my construction Engineers/Construction Managers ? I’m currently working for a company that pays me really good. (I believe) I just have 2 years of experience and my salary is 80k with my degree in Civil Engineering. I like working here but usually I feel like just another construction worker (60+/- hours a week). No events, no cool swag and very small chances to develop myself. Should I stay or should I look for another job ? By now I have 3 years of experience and 3 internships.

CM / PM here. It depends. Where in the US are you?

Interesting. Are you at a MEP firm or a GC or something else? What’s your title? Field engineer sounds like an assistant superintendent to me … but at 2 years, you can start interviewing for an assistant PM role which in California pays between $75-100k - closer to the bottom with 2 year.

Working in Construction, civil background! Getting 85k a year on 1.5 YOE at this point. I don’t know about the US market but I think you can definitely do better! Actually my company has a branch in the US. Check it out & apply there! The social culture is great. I can give you a referral as they’re hiring!

There are plenty of construction firms that will pay you 80k and give you better benefits than that. Weird that socialist Seattle doesn’t force their employers to offer a minimum level of benefits.

I’m waiting on the bonuses to make my decision because a lot of people says usually bonuses make up for that gap…

No harm in applying regardless to see what offers you can collect. You can always turn them all down. And remember, it’s never a potential employers business what you currently make!

I have been "head hunted" for a Director of Product role with the potential to grown an entire team of product and UX folks. I have some ideas on how I would potentially grow at team (dependent on business needs of course), but I'm curious if you could grow a Product team from scratch, what would be your first priorities?

Or if you've done this before, any lessons learned or things to avoid? I've started and grown other types of teams but never a Product specific team.

Thanks!
