Product Design Engineer Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Product Design Engineer?

Product Design Engineer in Elkhorn:
`"$It's A Job."`
Pros: I get to design and play with amazing software. I have direct and critical commentary on what we can run, how we're going to manufacture the part and finally how to inspect the part. My boss is amazing with providing immediate direct feedback regarding jobs I'm working on.
Cons: Communication and accountability as a whole (both for good things and bad) is absolutely horrible. There's a large "it's your problem, I don't care" attitude taking hold and it's affecting everyone's performance and stress levels (detrimentally). As a result, work loads have been dramatically uneven and unbalanced.
