Have you ever wondered what it's like to work for an engineering consulting firm? Here are three of our employees telling us what their daily life looks like! 

undefined


My morning usually starts with attending the daily manufacturing "huddle." At this meeting, I schedule any cleaning development or validations runs I need to perform for upcoming production lots. Afterwards, I typically work on any documents that I'm authoring such as validation protocols or summary reports. Some days there are meetings to attend to give updates on projects I'm working on or to discuss any issues that have come up. If it's a day that I'm executing a cleaning validation run, I'll print out the official protocol pages for execution. I'll complete any pre-requisites required by the protocol such as training verification or ensuring critical instruments are within calibration. During the equipment cleaning, I'll make sure the cleaning is performed per the SOP and document any necessary information required by the protocol. At the end of the final rinse, I'll collect the required rinse samples. Next, I'll perform a visual inspection of the equipment and then I'll collect swabs from the worst-case locations. Afterwards, I will deliver the samples to the appropriate labs. Then I hope for passing results!

-Engineer II

 

Nearly every site I've worked at has had significant differences in corporate culture, client-contractor relations, turnaround expectations, etc., and all of these factors make a "typical day/week/month" difficult to generalize. But, the project requirements (i.e. documentation/protocol writing, executing, reports, client involvement/supervision, etc.) seem to be a little more ubiquitous, and I therefore present you with "my life in a typical project":

As a junior-level engineer with a limited amount of experience, I find myself presented with the opportunity to do more on projects and to learn more about biotechnology through Hyde E+C than I would as a new-hire with another company. I'm able to lead the charge on some small items while concurrently working to support much larger company projects, almost all of which are geared towards quality and safety of biopharmaceuticals or medical devices. These projects are team efforts, and my role can be team leader or support member based on the nature of the task and the experience of the people with whom I work. Any given day I might be meeting with the client to discuss specifications and requirements for a the purchase and installation of a new CIP system, writing protocols towards developing a load pattern for an ultrasonic cleaner unit, creating a Gantt chart for a subprocess in the formulation of a flu vaccine, or conducting a lab-scale experiment to establish the presence of leachables/extractables in new parts. All tasks are highly regulated by the FDA, USP and many other national and international certifying bodies, making the engineering problem-solving unique and highly rigorous. Invariably, each task requires a formal summary report for delivery to the client or to the Regional office, and writing these reports gives me a certain amount of satisfaction in knowing that my contribution to the project, leader or follower, will make a difference in the quality of the product and thereby the well-being of the customer.

Pithy, yes, but these were items that I would have appreciated during my fairly recent, fresh-out-of-school job hunt. For a lot of the companies that I looked at, "a day in the life" was almost entirely something along the lines of "day-by-day, we synergize the utilization of quality practices with the efficiency of excellence through the detente between teamwork and a self-starting attitude" or "our corporate culture specializes in the promotion of wellness for our clients and our employees through a holistic, organic approach to product and spiritual integrity" or some other heady but useless drivel.

-Consultant I




At 7:30 I am sitting at my desk drinking coffee and looking over emails. Catching up on my SOP reading and generally preparing for my day. Every morning at 8:15 we have a general meeting discussing the planned activities - testing, troubleshooting, and training for the day and the rest of the week. Various issues that are encountered while testing the equipment are discussed and addressed. I try to absorb as much information as possible and finally have a pretty good understanding of the issues and tasks ahead. By 9:00 I am scouring the equipment being commissioned verifying part information, every valve, pump, and sensor. This pretty much takes me to noon at which point I take my time and enjoy the beautiful view and weather eating my lunch outside by the site cafeteria. Taking this time to let my mind wonder to anything and everything not work related. After lunch I make my way back to my desk and address any deficiencies and conflicts I found while performing the field verification. After that I take the rest of the day to work on preparing documents for testing to be performed the following day.
