To muddy the waters further, within some large organizations, there may be network engineer "grades", which might be numbered and/or named. E.g. Network engineer I, Network engineer III, Associate network engineer, Lead network engineer, etc.

In such large organizations, you might also find more lower "grade" network engineers working in NOC positions.
