"The industry, job profile is good.The compensation is way underpaid then deserved."
"Love everything of being a Manufacturing Engineer except the site I am working for does not have enough budget to increase the head count, and most of the times all the engineers have to stay late to meet the project timeline schedule, due to almost every engineer is doing two job position's workload."
"I love the challenge, and I hate when I cannot satisfy a customer, whether they are internal or external."
"I love being creative and having to problem solve. I enjoy research and development and creating something that functions and is also pleasing to the eye. What I dislike is that the manufacturing field is fading away."
"I really enjoyed the opportunity to work with others on assemblies and or projects.I like writing work instructions and developing processes.I just wished I would have had some of the opportunities other ME's received, such as training in areas like Kaizen and Flow process. I had to learn from OJT, which I did."
"I love the job description. Would like for environment to be more team oriented."
"What I love is creativity to apply technical thinking and what I hate is when design job is down and finished part is different from what I design for (and I have to find out why discrepancy happens)."
"I love the fact that I can analyze data/work locations within the production floor ahead of time to avoid future problems when we do start manufacturing a product. What I hate the most is that sometimes even after analyzing the data and submitting my detailed reports, upper management does not follow through with my recommendations."
"I loved the fact that I was reliable enough to do my own job, but I found it difficult to solve some of the problems especially when all the supervisors were busy."
"I love the variety of work from tooling design, automation development works for the highly manual and skilled scope of work of the aerospace assembly industry. I appreciate the details and the precision requirements.Because of the high skill levels of the people, change is very difficult to get acceptance. Resistance on participating with improvement and productive programs is high."
"Work early and go home early."
"Being a manufacturing engineer I always loved what I was doing. There are some instances where I came across some issues with union workers and was having little problems dealing some issues. Like an old saying, if there is a problem, there is a solution. And I wouldn't regret even a single minute of past 4 years of what I've done and I will stay in manufacturing engineering irrespective of the hurdles."
"Challenge to find new solutions to problems and find that sometimes the solution needs development."
"I enjoy the every day challenges associated with the manufacturing industry. I am very skilled technically and analytically and motivated to improve current process and solve problems through data analysis. I like being pushed in a fast paced environment, it keeps me active and always searching for something to improve with the processes. The only down side to my job are some of the longer hours that interfere with family life outside of work."
