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

July 2019
Product Design Engineer in Phoenix:
This company pays below market level for Senior and Principal Engineers while expecting Project Engineering Support along with direct engineering support. There is an inadequate number of projects to keep one fully engaged while senior management expects high yields exceeding 48 hours/week with no overtime. Those who most benefit are tier 3 and higher managers. I would recommend avoiding for profit and working for a good nonprofit company that recognizes and rewards results.

Product Design Engineer in Tampa:
I have been with Mercury for just over 3 months. It has a great atmosphere and great people. Under new leadership for the past 2 years, and everyone I've spoken with is happy with the changes being made throughout the company. I am told that it is a good time to come aboard, and I feel that way as well.

"It's A Job."
Product Design Engineer:
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.
