The Network Engineer Enlightenment Series


Being a network engineer is hard.

You could be the ones working the longest hours on tasks that could make or break an enterprise’s backbone (which is precisely what networks are), but compared to the more “glamorous” roles of, say an application developer, your jobs aren’t all that interesting.

You wake up to a flood of tickets every morning, consisting of tasks that could eat up your workday whole.

You’re the go-to guy for every issue, however minor, that could possibly be blamed on the network (like the poor Firewall Guy above)

You spend sleepless nights during events like a server upgrade or a DR drill.

But more often than not, it’s not the job itself that’s dull; the way you do it makes a world of difference.
