5 years ago

I have worked at startup device companies and they consistently were the last payor to cover the procedure and devices. When we met with them, it was almost like their mind was made up before our presentation. Who loses here? Their crappy margins or the patient? Patient first my ***.

I'm glad they're focusing on these deals. Next time maybe HR can be straight with us about layoffs. "No one will be affected..." How about the people at corporate. HR is supposed to be honest but they are lying pigs here at MDT.
