    I worked at Oerlikon full-time

    Pros

    Overall good company to work for. You will learn a lot if you are a "go getter". If you are a driven individual, you will succeed at this company.

    Cons

    You need to manage your own career. It is not necessary a bad thing. For me it was a good thing.
