Entry level engineering, it's a good place to start, learn some CAD software. As a contract employee it offered job security, should my contract expire. Daxcon was willing to keep people on and look for work in their office or at another company.
Almost no opportunity for advancement, for most employees it serves as a glorified job shop or temp agency.
