Electrical Discharge Machine (EDM) Operator and Programmer in Galesville:
"Mixed bag of Pros/Cons."
Pros: I enjoy the challenge that every job brings with it. Variety is the spice of life here. Truly is interesting work that I can dive right into each day.
Cons: Equipment is 15-20+ years old in most cases and upgrades never seem to be affordable. No one really wants to learn anything new just keep the status quo going. If you innovate be ready to get your nose cut off if it doesn't work out perfect the first time.
