Junior project engineer (Current Employee) –  Indianapolis, INJanuary 6, 2016
The job provides a fair deal of experience working as an installation technician and provides a lot of opportunities to work at project installation sites. However from the perspective of a project engineer with a design viewpoint, the majority of the equipment sold and installed is behind the times due in part to an unwillingness on the managers' part to depart from old design and components used since the company was founded, and also due to tight budget controls on part requisitions. The design process has been highly standardized and while this is favorable in the sense that it streamlines drafting, it hampers further development of new programs and controls logic because any attempts to experiment outside the standards are often discouraged and rebuked. The worst part of the job is that Systec goes through an annual 1-3 month dry spell in which the number of contracts sold drops significantly, so no work is available around the office and manufacturing department during these periods. The corporate culture is pretty relaxed among department peers, however rivalries between departments often cause issues and stifles communication. On a positive note though, project engineer and installation technician positions have low employee retention rates, so employee that sticks it out with the company long enough with be the one of the highest in their department's hierarchy on account of being one of the few that remain.
Pros
Streamlined design work.
Cons
Discourages experimentation, Long periods spent traveling, Periods without projects to work on

Mechanical Engineering Intern (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INJuly 27, 2015
Systec is a small to mid size conveyor company which had its in-house production facility right next to the design dept. I was a part of the four member Mechanical Engineering Dept and my role was to work on conveyor designs and fixtures. It was great to see the designs made in computer being physically made and assembled into the giant conveyors. The design solutions applied for custom made conveyors was very innovative. The most enjoyable part of the job was to see the cradle-to-grave of the conveyor being built, first in the design and then physically in the production house. I could understand the importance of print and labeling in design-production centric environments like that in Systec. Most importantly, I was able to see business activity and the position of the Mechanical Engineer in the organization holistically.
