What is it like working as a Senior Mechanical Engineering Designer?

Senior Mechanical Engineering Designer in Kansas City:
Cons: The stress is very high. There is high expectations for the limited time constraints. The stress comes from project deadlines that are unrealistic for various reasons. There is always a push to do things fast and cheaper so that upper management get their huge bonuses. The work also demands that you actually do three different jobs all at once; I have to do engineering, know and be proficient at CAD drafting and 3D modeling, and be a computer expert. It is a struggle to continue learning things in all three areas.
