    Pros

    Very fast pace operation. Exposure to many different projects, and products.

    Cons

    Contract manufacturing is sometimes difficult, especially when most of the customers typically have different rules for engagement of their product, and processes. Overall though, it has been a very good company to work for. You are able to go as far as your drive will take you to learn new skills and practices.
