    Pros

    Our products improve people's lives. Many opportunities for growth. I love what I do and the team I work with. Great Products!

    Cons

    Far too much emphasis put on shareholders over employees. We are too lean as the top brass tries to cut resources to raise the stock price. Country is at full employment means folks are leaving for greener pastures. WAKE UP CEO!

    Advice to Management

    Hey Omar! We are the ones who built this company, not the shareholders. It should ALWAYS be; Patients First, Employees Second, Shareholders a distant third. Why did we not see a single penny of the Trump tax cuts? I bet you did.
