What are the Best and Worst things about your job?
The unique and high profile projects. The pay and benefits. Welcoming and friendly staff. STEM and graduate development programmes.
The commute to HMNB Clyde. The dated and strong presence of industrial unions on site. It can take a long time to get projects completed due to other high profile projects taking priority. Non engineering based projects and more project management. Not using skills learned at university eg. if you design a component, it has to be given to a department to model on CAD and then it is passed to another department for FEA analysis.
