The typical work day consists of 9 hours per day. I have learned a lot about work place policy from my coworkers. I believe management could use some improvement. Lack of productive communication is the biggest hurdle at this company.
Run parts on the CNC I have learned everything from this company Management is terrible, no respect from me when I don't see the same work ethic from them as I have myself Culture is laid back, work gets done but is not efficient Hardest part is looking at the managers throughout the day Most enjoyable is the freedom to make stuff for myself
Freedom to make personal projects

Receiving Inspector II (Current Employee) – California – 16 March 2018
Working at Smiths Interconnectinc (Tecom) is such a great experience I learn something new everyday and improve my knowledge for good ,the environment is peaceful everybody gets along with. The company innovations are incredible, here at Smiths celebrates every holidays, The managers are respectful, they know employees don't need much supervision, and we as employees know our duties.The hardest part of the job is that in this moment the company's business are low and is going to moved to Florida where the main company is. and the best part of the company is that I have learned and grow in the aerospace industry. Although when I stared in this company I had experience but there is always something new and better to learn. It's been a great experience working in Smiths Interconnectinc ( Tecom).
I love my job and remain challenged weekly at this position. I started as a junior engineer, trained to become an applications engineer, then moved to a line engineer and eventually assuming the role of engineering manager. The old saying is responsibility is 'assumed, not given'. A typical day is managing the execution of the design releases to planning and responses to sales based on loading. I have learned that micromanagement kills a department with creative engineers; I have learned this the hard way and also by having continually better management over me. The culture has been a roller coaster with the hardest part adapting to continual change. This isn't too bad if you accept it as a challenge and vehicle for growth. The best part of my job is still learning something new each week.
