Quality Manager Reviews

What is it like working as a Quality Manager?

Quality Manager in Anniston:
"Great career."
Pros: I like that I have a great deal of freedom in choosing my own hours, so long as work is completed and they make sense. I have a voice that is heard by my direct superior, which.
Cons: Great deal of responsibility falls completely on my shoulders with nobody working in my department. It is a small company I work for (this location) so there are many duties that fall outside of quality that I am responsible for.
