Information Technology Project Managers

Work Environment

Project managers usually work regular business hours, but they often work at night and on weekends to meet deadlines. Approximately 40 percent of computer and information systems managers worked more than 40 hours per week in 2014, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Project managers may be required to travel to a client’s office to do their work; for certain projects, they may be on site for several months at a time. A career as a project manager will be rewarding for those who like working closely with others, a busy work environment, and the opportunity to work on a variety of projects. This career may not be a good fit for those who are averse to tight deadlines (and the stress and long hours that sometimes comes with meeting them), occasional disagreements with top executives or team members about the goals or status of projects, and the challenges of working with people with a wide range of skill sets and personalities.
