there are small labs that are hiring and that pay well. just sayin.You hit the nail on the head here. It really came off so great initially, but over time it has gotten worse, expectations to produce are beginning to get out of hand. Designers who spit out work are praised which screws the designers that take their time to make sure things are done properly. I only see it getting worse unfortunately. But the other side of the coin is working for my local labs making 21 an hour lucky enough if they offer benefits. Sad that I had once considered 60k salary unobtainable, so maybe I am a sellout, but what's my Alternative? Work my fingers to the bone for my local lab and be harrassed in person. I just talked to my old co-worker from one of the labs, he got covid, reported to the higher ups about this and had the govt issued covid test result. Well guess what, that result isn't good enough, he has to get another covid test at CVS to prove he has it. So, deal with micromanaging in my own home in my PJs or be harassed by the local lab owners (to the point of having panic attacks) that have zero respect for the techs they have working there. I'd love it if I could get paid what I deserve and work for a small lab, but right now I'll take this.
But also good on you for posting how it works at dandy
