"I love working issues and supporting our customer. I hate dealing with the bureaucracy and the inability to be competitive with our rate structure."
"I love being a part of something larger than myself. When I am given the support needed to be successful, it is a great feeling to be able to make things happen. A real sense of achievement makes each day worth it."
"The autonomy and ability to see projects through from start to finish. I enjoy building the plane while flying it."
"Handling budgets, driving the end results for business need and dynamic environment and most important, maintain relationship."
"The love - work challenge and opportunity to explore more knowledge in the field. I had to create an intelligence module around the regulatory requirements for various regions, communicate and train them. I hate the communication barriers that restrict the job."
"As a Program Manager (PgM) you're always learning. No two programs are the same because technology is constantly changing. Therefore, you are constantly in a learning mode. As the PgM, you have to learn new structure and processes. Thus, a Program Manager’s world is ever changing, growing and evolving – it’s a great ride! One more thing that I love about being a Program Manager is that you work with all sorts of interesting people. Program Management is a great training ground for future CEOs. Ability to manage things, risks, tasks, processes and at the same time lead people is for the few, the proud and the good PgMs. What do I hate about being a Program Manager, your success depends on the success of the team. You're now the head coach of Washington Redskins. If the team wins you take the glory, if the team does not win, you're toasted regardless of your previous accolades as a championship winning coach. Analogously, as a Program Manager you must rise above details mentality and become more of delegator and coordinator. Else I forget, to succeed as a PgM, you must maintain an open communication channel 24x7 and you must be a good and effective communicator; otherwise, don’t go down this path."
"Thoroughly enjoyed the growth of the operation that expanded into several locations nationwide. Interaction with key Verizon personnel enabled a solid relationship that lasted for years. Satisfied in observing the growth of technicians into management and other roles beyond their expectation."
"It's an easy job for me. I want more responsibilities like I had as a product line manager."
"Interacting with all layers of the company or customer from Strategic to operational is a positive. Unless you take conscious effort you may soon be out dated in technology as your work doesn't involve hands on technology."
"I enjoy everything about Program Management. I am a good learner and love challenges. As a PM I get to face them more often. So far there is nothing that I don't like"
"I have built a good team and customers so that has helped a lot. I love everything about it."
"Business & Technology Consulting on a project/contract basis enables attaining a comprehensive knowledge of many different types of business models and vertical markets, as well as the ability to understand how different federal, state and local government organizations operate. However there is something to be said for working with a single organization on a long-term basis and cultivating, developing, implementing and achieving a concise long-term vision."
"I love that I build a strong relationship with my workers that work with me. Things that I hate is that all the other managers love to gossip and start problems with other co-workers."
