What is it like working as an Electro-Mechanical Technician?

Electro-Mechanical Technician in Los Angeles:
"Oh the joys of building rockets!"
Pros: I"m actually a Lead Technician that oversees multiple applications from bonding, plumbing installation and welding, avionics, and other miscellaneous tasks. My job provides many perks, but my favorite and most satisfying part is seeing something that I helped build fly off into space. Being able to see the work I do and be apart of that is a feeling I cannot describe.
Cons: The day to day stress, egos, and limited communication from my immediate leaders.
