Supplier Quality Engineer (SQE) Reviews

What is it like working as a Supplier Quality Engineer (SQE)?
Supplier Quality Engineer (SQE) in Santa Clara:
"Great, If You Love Paperwork And Bureaucracy."
Pros: Traveling for supplier audits is nice. That's about it.
Cons: Pretty much everything. The job is 100% paperwork and bureaucracy. You can't do the simplest things without following byzantine and over complicated procedures. Accomplishing minor tasks is next to impossible. The work is unstimulating and about as far from hands-on as you can get.
