Engineering and natural sciences managers Description: Engineering and natural science managers plan and direct research, development, and production in large and small companies and research labs. They hire engineers, chemists, and biologists. They manage and review the work in a business or lab and help determine salaries. They also decide what workers and equipment are needed to do certain jobs.Source: Bureau of Labor Statistics, U.S. Department of Labor, Occupational Outlook Handbook, 2008-09 Edition at http://www.bls.gov/OCO/Complete Job Profile: http://www.bls.gov/oco/ocos009.htmSalary: \$50,001 or more per yearComments:I am a Land Development Engineer/Manager and specialize in private commercial development and civil engineering.
