P.E. status doesn't mean much here (I'm in Texas). Its only a resume
builder and something engineers with too much time on their hands tend
to apply for while the rest of us are too busy designing and missing
our vacation and holiday allotments. :S
The only place I've seen P.E. used in the states are by bigger
contractors. However, I've never seen or heard anyone say that it was
any factor in selection. If anything, I find it an indicator that the
associated engineer has an inflated opinion of his abilities and
probably high business overhead for a cushy office.
We've never hired a P.E. rated engineer for work. We're smart enough
to know the difference between someone has expertise and someone
making a sales pitch.
Would it be nice to have a REAL designation identifying a Professional
Engineer? Yes. Does it exist? No. I'm constantly amazed by the
level of pathetic engineering work I see. (My company specializes on
job where contractors have first done a bad job and the client learns
its worth paying more for the results they require).
