There's no substitute for hard work feels ex IITian, Kalandi Charan Panda. Currently with Hindustan Construction Company as General Manager (Operations), he has over 28 years of experience in this field.
I love working on different projects at the same time. Each assignment is a challenge. It gives me immense pleasure when the organisation makes profits from my project. At the end of the day it feels great to see your creation. You also get to learn a lot from your experiences and different postings. Above all this job enables you to work with people from different places and culture. And that's something I enjoy doing.
Civil Engineers have to deal with erratic work hours. So you have less time for yourself and your family. Consequently, your health also suffers due to long work hours.
This job is very stressful. It's not always easy to keep peace between the workers, management and the union. You have to keep track of unscrupulous elements from disturbing the smooth functioning of the project.
