    Pros

    A place that gives you alot of exposure and you could learn a lot not only in terms of work but the hard truth of reality and surviving today's society

    Cons

    bad management which fails to realizes what the company needs nor is there any direction, having only desires for sales but fails to realized that in any business, e.g mc donalds, wallmart, alibaba, being the best at delivery always beats the best at getting orders (which eventually you could not delivery anyway.)

    Advice to Management

    company needs restructuring, recognizes who is the real assets, if you cant, then history will always remembers you as the one who put a patient monitor in a spacecraft and never came back.
