Pros: Learned a new CAD system NX to go with my previous experience with Solid Edge and Pro/Engineer.
Cons: I could not get the company to supply me with Mathcad or SnagIt, I've had no raises in two years.
I was originally hired to work in their LibertyWorks Division, a separate management structure to work on military projects. I enjoyed the work and the people I worked with. My work was all classified or Secret as was my work at Raytheon.
During a reorganization, a new department was created called System Design Integration. I was placed in this department under new management doing things I did not fullly understand most of the time. This is my experience over the last two plus years. I am penalized for not knowing the things of SDI Engineers because I was never trained nor did I ever want to be an SDI Engineer. It's mostly handling endless forms, no design work, etc. It is completely outside of my skillset. Talks with management, Ethics and HR have proved fruitless. So I'm stuck in a job I hate with no other regress than to look for work elsewhere. RR is reorganizing again and there are rumors of a sell-off of part of the company.
Over the last 15 years, I grown a strong attachment to the Indianapolis area and wish not to relocate, if possible.
