    Pros

    Tremendously supportive, progressive and professional.

    Cons

    In some instances, significantly behind the competition in terms of technology which can be challenging. Additionally, decision-making can often be swayed too heavily by political manipulation although that's often a reality of the healthcare industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Push harder on collaborative relationships now as opposed to continually giving in to maintain peaceful relations. I fear we may be setting a precedent that may have the potential to cause significant harm in the future.

    Pros

    Great company to work for overall. They employ highly intelligent and skilled employees and project resources. Great corporate culture. Management treats their employees with respect and dignity. Management also seeks input from employees at all levels. It is a great place to gain visibility with leadership no matter your title or role.

    Cons

    No cons. It can be challenging to get a job there because it is a highly sought-after company and because of the high level of employee retainment, job openings are at a premium.
