      Not my present company as it is a government owned laboratory, but I have worked for a couple of companies who have really taken off. I have made a steady and reasonable living as an engineer all my life and that is what I advise in careers evening. You will almost always be in work as a qualified and good engineer. not everyone can be a Dyson! regards Robin

      There is more and more demand for reliability engineering in the energy business, as reliabile systems mean that energy can be produced more safely and more cheaply. My company is only 2 years old, but we are growing rapidly because of the demand for what we do. I don’t know that it will make me, or the company rich, but I’m having a lot of fun trying!
