Diverse working environment with employees that make the company great
Validation Engineer (Current Employee) – Beaverton, OR – April 9, 2016
A typical day at work usually starts around 8 and ends at 5. The working environment is pretty relaxed and people have the options of showing up later or earlier depending on what works best for them. Depending on what was priority, checking email and organizing myself for the day ahead is what I would start with. After that I would begin testing. Followed by lunch then heading back to work and continue my job until the day was done.
I learned a wealth of knowledge that I believe will prepare me in my job search in the future. Of most of what I learned a lot dealt with wireless 802.11 and Bluetooth. Noise, density, and traffic were a lot of what we worked with and performance testing of a lot of the technology that is in use today.
Management is an interesting group of individuals. Most came from Intel and do things a little different. As of recent I feel there has been a slack in management. The direction isn't the same as it was a year or so ago and it now feels a bit childish and not as success driven as it was.
My coworkers are truly what make this job great. Old, young, experienced, and inexperienced. It really didn't matter the background if the coworker had a desire to learn and be friendly I liked them.
Hardest part about the job is sometimes wondering what to do. Sometimes work isn't there since a lot of contracts were on sprint basis and if the management didn't have tasks a lot of time was wasted.
