    Pros

    Coworkers were nice to work with.

    The company doesn't care about their employee. They asked you to work overtime, stayed 24hr on-call which they would call you at 3am in the morning.

    Pros

    Love my co-workers, we have a great little team. Lots of overtime. There is a lot to learn, even if you have to twist an arm to have someone teach you.

    Cons

    The management is iffy, and the instruments we need to use are always broken and rarely fixed. Taking time off is a hassle despite having tons of PTO.
