By all accounts, January is starting off on a good note. I just got off the phone with a member of our editorial advisory board, and he indicated that his company is doing well, and has been doing fairly well through the down economy. He also indicated things are looking good for 2011. He said part of it is because of the types of buildings they chose to engineer, but he also feels that the overall attitude in the engineering marketplace is good.

 

Some forecasters predict a bullish market. Others say falling unemployment numbers and increasing mortgage rates are good signs. Retailers seemed pretty happy with recent holiday sales numbers.

 

So are we headed in the right direction? Tell us how you feel by taking this simple poll. Do you anticipate your engineering business to get better, worse, or stay the same in 2011? Answer today.
