Good Direct Manager, Poor Upper Management
Manufacturing Engineer II (Current Employee) –  Concord, CAOctober 7, 2014
A typical day at work consists of supporting the production floor in various aspects. Troubleshooting, redesigning parts for manufacturability, designing and building tools or fixtures to streamline the assembly flow. I also complete the drafting and workflow requirements for my department which requires knowledge of various CAD software and Enterprise Resource Planning tools.

I've learned a lot about DFM, LEAN initiatives, setting up a production facility, and serving as a middle man between the design team and assemblers.

The hardest part of the job is the amount of hoops one has to jump through in order to initiate change. There is unfortunately too much, "that's how we've always done it" going around.

My team consists of good people that genuinely want to help and improve the product. Upper management and production supervision has lost sight of what we are trying to accomplish making a lot of people very frustrated, and with poor morale.

The most enjoyable part for me is designing and implementing tools and fixtures that changes how we run the production floor. Getting it right for the assemblers is a very rewarding experience.

No time for breaks or lunches
