Who doesn’t love engineering comics? Let’s face it—no matter how much you love your job and how great your co-workers and managers are, we all experience frustrations and adversity at work. And nobody epitomizes the plight of engineers quite like Dilbert, Alice and Wally.
Over the years, I’ve compiled a list of my favorite Dilbert engineering comics, and from those, here are eight of the best ones relating to engineers and the difficulties that we face daily, in both our work and our personal lives.
I hope you enjoy them! If you have a favorite Dilbert comic, especially one that relates to engineers, please share it in the comments.
We love playing “the telephone game” with sales and customers.
We’ve all seen maintenance manuals that were incredibly complicated or impossible to execute. Now we know why.
Accuracy or timeliness. It’s a choice that engineers face all too often.
Much to our dismay, logic doesn’t always apply.
It works this way in reverse, too.
Some goals are mutually exclusive.
Einstein’s theories apply to meetings too.
Apologies to my friends, colleagues, and readers in marketing, but I couldn’t help it.
