    Pros

    Its products help people. Its developers care about the products and the end customer (the patient on the table)

    Cons

    Management has been up and down over the past couple of years. Power is held at head office so all decision making is there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust the local management teams... they know what they are doing. They are the ones who make this company what it is today.
