Automotive industry quality engineer for over 10 years. Working as a contractor for an automotive supplier, corporate micromanaged global corporation. Just received an offer to go into defense/aerospace local plant with expanding business. Money is same, benefits and hours. Biggest turmoil is what to do! Contract position is trying hard to get a permanent position but the act requires U.K. corporate approval. Anyone work in defense/aerospace that has suggestions? How much different is it? I would be quality coordinator under quality director over 4 plants. Not much QE stuff but documentation, audits and training.
