Pros

good exposure to the in and outings of a medical device repair facility. Deep hands on experience working with endoscopic medical devices.

Cons

very little room for career growth. the duties assigned to an engineer are the same as the duties assigned to a jr, engineer.

Advice to Management

wonderful experience working with management, i learned a great deal of industry standards working with Olympus; however, management should be more proactive in grooming its jr. engineers to take on more responsibilities within their assigned department and within the organization.
