    A good start to get wide exposure to the regulatory side of the medical device industry.

    Pros

    The position allows flexibility in terms of work hours (any 80) and a superb work/life balance.

    The occasion to be recognized for outstanding review work is extremely rare.

    Pros

    Interesting work, sometimes - or rarely

    Cons

    Stagnation, bloated bureaucracy getting worse, infantilization of employees, clueless people can wind up in positions of power too easily (but you probably will not be able to)

    Advice to Management

    Leave and let someone competent do your job
