Electrical Design Engineer in Wildomar:
"Company Metrics Ruin It."
So Cal Edison has a guiding value of "Continuous Improvement", which they have used to force Metrics after Metrics down everyone's throats... We have essentially"continually improved" ourselves out of practicality. The company belt tightens and belt tightens so much that they pay 1/2 as much as they used to for the same oosition while management and CEO bonuses get bigger and bigger.

Electrical Design Engineer in Morrisville:

Cons:

Electrical Design Engineer in Wixom:
Pros: Work and home separation, challenging, respected.
Cons: Small company, should be paid more.

Electrical Design Engineer in Binghamton:
Pros: Interesting, exciting projects. I am given quite a bit of freedom. They paid for my Master's degree, engineering license, certifications and training that will get me a better job with the pay I deserve. The benefits are nice but they are the same benefits every company offers and the amount I pay for health insurance is quite high.
Cons: The pay is way too low. No promotions. They expect you to work overtime for the terrible pay. They absolutely need an engineer with a Master's degree to work on the projects but they only want to pay someone as entry level with a Bachelor's degree. I have to watch everyone I graduated with (I was in the top 10 of my class), be promoted to senior engineers and make 15k + more in the same location I live in, meanwhile, I have more job responsibilities. One of my projects received praise from the CEO of the company and I am still paid this poorly. I am working, have worked and they hope I will work on several products this company is excited to earn millions on, sometimes I am the main engineer and do the bulk of the work on the project. I did not receive a pay raise for obtaining my Master's degree (even though while I was earning it, I was told that I would, and my overall GPA was a 3.7) and the degree is completely relevant and absolutely needed for the work I am given.
