My experience


Researched background info for designing future products. Manufactured parts using CNC Mill. Designed basic fixtures in Solidworks. Performed basic thermal analysis using hand calculations. Assembled basic fixtures using hand tools.

I would not recommend working here in the RF or Mechanical team. Other teams may be better.


Colleagues are smart and work could be interesting.


Management was poor, it was extremely difficult to get feedback or direction on what you were doing. I was often left without anything to do, and the things I did do were rarely interesting or educational.
