Q: What is it like working as a Project Engineer?

Project Engineer in Peabody:
"Regulatory compliance: a fast paced environment."
Being a project engineer in regulatory compliance is great for engineers who like working in a fast-paced, ever evolving environment. One must be able to handle multiple projects at once, different types of products/standards, as well as the ability to learn new requirements as they are introduced. One must master time management, but this also lends to a feeling of self managing and independence. Colleagues are there for support when judgement and interpretations could use a discussion. Due to the nature of regulatory compliance, where it occurs at the tail end of the R&D cycle, clients can sometimes be impatient with the process. It is important to learn to manage the clients expectations, and convey to them that the process is a collaboration between yourself and them.
