Working Conditions
Computer software engineers normally work in well-lighted and comfortable offices or computer laboratories in which
computer equipment is located. Most software engineers work at least 40 hours a week; however, due to the projectoriented nature of the work, they also may have to work evenings or weekends to meet deadlines or solve
unexpected technical problems. Like other workers who sit for hours at a computer, typing on a keyboard, software
engineers are susceptible to eyestrain, back discomfort, and hand and wrist problems such as carpal tunnel
syndrome.
As they strive to improve software for users, many computer software engineers interact with customers and
coworkers. Computer software engineers who are employed by software vendors and consulting firms, for example,
spend much of their time away from their offices, frequently traveling overnight to meet with customers. They call on

customers in businesses ranging from manufacturing plants to financial institutions.


As networks expand, software engineers may be able to use modems, laptops, e-mail, and the Internet to provide
more technical support and other services from their main office, connecting to a customers computer remotely to
identify and correct developing problems.
