    Pros

    You will learn everything about the EMS business
    There are some truly wonderful people there

    Cons

    There are many more less than wonderful people - some of this may be a matter of the type of employees who end up in EMS as opposed to OEM and some are good people who are simply under way too much stress from a ridiculous workload, disorganization, low-quality coworkers, and a culture than almost openly encourages hostility and confrontation

    Advice to Management
