I have recently started helping the quality team to guarantee that our products meet a consistent standard. My job is very varied, and I am in touch with the product and production process most days. What I’ve noticed is that I can approach everyone and contacting the management directly is not a problem. We have a good atmosphere in our team, and everyone helps each other whenever necessary. There’s also a great atmosphere at work and the people are understanding and motivated, which to me is essential!
