Typical days were Monday - Friday, 9am-6pm and normally no weekends. We also had very generous vacation and holiday time off. In this position I was able to extend my knowledge regarding contracting, reading contracts, accruals and rebates. Management was great to work for and practiced an open door policy. I enjoyed the people I worked with, especially when we had "off site" fun days as a group. These times together helped to strengthen the team as a whole. The most difficult part of the job was the uncertainty of employment. This due to the company downsizing. The most enjoyable part of the position was that the stress level, at most times, was minimal.
Verification & Validation Engineer (Current Employee) – Waterloo, ON – 7 February 2018
This is the type of job where you can find yourself doing the same thing 20 years down the line. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but I would like to have a clear career path, and that's not available here. You can be promoted within the company, but there's no official promotion path.
