Difficult workplace, but with great potential for improvement
Research Engineer (Former Employee) – Munich – 10 September 2018
My role - to begin with - was uncertain, as I was unable to easily navigate through extremely elaborate security and restrictions concerning vital project information. Time was lost with indeterminate goals, badly documented existing procedures, and unreliable hardware. I did come supplied with textbooks for the design and mathematical foundations of what was to be done (statistical measurements of jitter), but there were few opportunities to work with the existing team members, many of which seemed to be almost permanently unavailable. Work was almost entirely alone; most working days were just that. Feedback was sporadic and delayed.
