In my case I don't have any regrets being an engineer but at some points in my engineering career it came to dealing with fixing people and their problems rather than fixing systems with problems.
I guess you don't fix the people with a scalpel and a psychologist is a bit different then a doctor, or you actually meant the first one?
well, I was trying to say when I first started off my job in communications engineering it was all about getting your hands dirty, installing systems, configuring, planning, I'd enjoy talking and arguing to people about what solution worked and what didn't.
Fast forward a few years and my hands on with the products started to decline, particularly with the advent of virtual machines, snapshots etc etc it made my engagement with the systems I loved and worked less enthusiastic.
The direction that my company was taking at that time with respect to the road map of these products I had so grown to love had changed, the change in company dynamics product A in favour or Product B, office politics, team interaction and so on.. I started to feel less and less like the engineer I once was.
