Diverse work but stressful
Test Engineer (Former Employee) – Sidney, NY – June 26, 2015
I was a test engineer, meaning I worked both in quality and in R&D. I tested core products to pass/fail specifications, qualified new products for sales and marketing, and analyzed new designs for engineering.
I learned a lot about the aerospace industry as well as military and global test specifications.
Low level managers had their hearts in the right place, but unfortunately upper management was run by people who only looked at numbers and didn't fully understand how to do the jobs they were managing.
Because of this, the work environment was very stressful with lots of tight and somewhat unrealistic/impossible deadlines that required lots of overtime work.
