    Pros

    I considered leaving several times because I was overwhelmed and overworked.... But at the end of the day, they knew and they cared and they were trying to do something about it...
    Great team and company.
    Awesome work environment.
    Steady workload
    Learning encouraged

    Cons

    Bought out
    Big abaxis only wants sales
    All employees were dropped on their behinds like it was no big deal, brush your shoulders off....

    Advice to Management

    Know your techs, I knew how to fix half your problems in under a week, but I read people better than most.
    Amazing guy, honestly. Always willing to teach if you were willing to learn.
