    I have been working at Applied Medical full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great place to gain experience in the manufacture of medical devices (please don't call them widgets - you'll get a frowny face from Said)

    Cons

    Ridiculous expectations for project completions - massive amounts of paperwork. Some products released on market too soon or designed by young inexperienced engineers.

Stop pretending that you hire interns every summer so you can enrich young aspiring engineers and help them with their careers when your true goal is to recruit future engineers and pay them ridiculously low wages. Stop lying to yourself about why you are in business - it is not to sell affordable medical devices and lower...
