Manufacturing Engineer

January - August 2018 • Columbus, OH

What I liked

I loved working with the people! I also enjoyed the environment that I worked in, as it proved to be conducive for my professional growth. Executive exposure was a huge experience also! I was afforded the opportunity to have lunch, one-on-one, with senior vice presidents and the CEO.

What I wish was different

While working with Battelle, they went through an organizational restructure. As a result, the company laid off 10% of the workforce; this implemented a very gloomy mood across the company. Nonetheless, I was able to maintain a vibrant mood and uplift the spirits of those around me.

Advice

To network as much as possible!
