I work with electrical engineers every day and while some actually work installs well. Most of them are pretty scary. This picture would actually be considered fairly well done

That looks more like a temporary test lashup than a permanent install.

I think it's probably safe to say that it doesn't come under the requirements of "neat and workmanlike."

...Maybe a sanitation engineer. The install looks like $%^&$%&. Seems like a bizarre place to mount equipment, on the side of w water heater

Wonder why there are two transformers, and only one is connected...?

That's a spare for when the first one burns out because there's no OCP.
