That is great news - I am very happy for you - I love living in Florida, and the short time that I spent in Michigan was miserable - the weather is terrible, and the work environment for engineers in the automotive industry was a lose-lose situation, stuck between an immovable union (late '80's) and an unforgiving market yielding to foreign imports. As interesting as that industry could be, it just wasn't fertile ground then for an engineer.Jason,
I’m also a graduate of GM. I worked for Delphi doing R&D on Integrated Circuits for Engine Controllers. We came to Florida for a vacation five years ago, saw the sun, palm trees, and water, and bought a house. Providentially, a few months later, I was offered an earlier retirement package that I couldn’t refuse. I loved my work, but my wife and I were ready for a change, so we took the leap.
