Field Engineer - Assignment (Former Employee) – Dulles, VA – October 5, 2015

The demand alone to maintain 5 of the most complex pieces of machinery to date is in itself the greatest challenge.
For the first 5 years the company was my dream job but as with time, management changed at the upper levels and their priorities changed. The focus on the engineers ultimately changed and in some cases was completely lost.
