    Pros

    Great dynamic working environment on sit. Always busy and presents constant challenges to grow and develop as an EIT. The management has always been friendly and helpful.

    Cons

    Being an EIT in a large firm you often get pigeon holed into tasks you may not believe are what you should be focusing on as an EIT. This said all experience is good experience and you learn a lot.

    Advice to Management

    Management is great and friendly but i believe as an EIT they should put more effort into getting their EIT's exposure to engineering problems and have better mentorship for which they can learn from.
