    Management has clear vision for engineering services in contract manufacturing. Most managers are highly experienced former engineers. Good mix of projects to make it interesting.

    Pros

    It got multiple customer bases across different industries. You may expose to multiple functions as the company scale is not big.

    Cons

    You probably won't grow in this company as it's a very financial driven company and no much training opportunity. You will end up with contributing and no gaining in terms of career growth.
