I didn't realize you were talking about being a grower. I thought you were meaning working in the industry using an engineering degree. Most people have no clue how big the industry is or how many and varying opertunities are in the industry.

Not being a dick but if you think having a issue during the production seaso. Means you're fucked, you have no business thinking About being a producer.

Manufacturing engineers work a lot of hours and peak at lower wages than designers, just the way it is. If you understand how production works, can design things properly keeping manufacturability in mind and can articulate those things clearly during meetings and customer visits, you're pretty much unstoppable Then you get to play with big budgets and work with stuff you'd never own without the companies money High reward still equals high risk though, if someone being paid less can do almost as much as you, expect to be sent packing

I have an ME degree and ended up working in manufacturing because I liked the variety of work. Being a process engineer allows you to work a good portion of your day out on the floor fixing/upgrading/improving machines that make the product. I found this a lot more interesting than doing the design side all the time.
