    Pros

    As an intern, you have a wide range of projects and experiences. You get to work with a variety of teams/engineers who all know their stuff.

    Cons

    For a full time employee, you would have to pursue a more in-depth understanding of the medical intricacies.

    The company has many experts and smart talents. This is invaluable for new employees who need to further grow. The work environment is friendly. The pressure in the company is not huge so the life is quite balanced.

    The city is a little bit of lonely and will relatively smaller population than the big cities. Those who stayed long time in big cities may not like it. Travelling to other places is not so convenient.

    more efficient workflow and co-work between employees
