Pros

Smart, caring people. Polite and driven to make customers happy. Advanced (80- people) startup but sold manufacturing to Topcon in July, 2010. Now, Optimedica is small (20 persons) and back in early Startup Mode.

Cons

New Optimedia is not driven to make a new cataract product before they run out of money. Hiring like crazy (Oct 2010) high end engineers only. Some Bosses (in RnD) in old Optimedia were not that smart and brown nosers. Say they care about people (manufacturing/customer/QA) but did not when they sold the that part of the company.

Advice to Management

Treat employees better.. be more honest about money in the bank and be so darn "happy" all the time.
