    Pros

    Position provides a great opportunity to learn about the company and interact with with different departments. It also provides the chance to showcase skills

    Cons

    Not much growth in department, no cross training, and lack of communication. Competition within the little room for growth that is in department.

    Advice to Management

    Help provide opportunities for employees to grow within company and help improve skills. They need to work on open communication and create a sense of need.

    Pros

    Personally challenging, impact to healthcare and day-to-day experiences of patients/customers lives.

    Cons

    Bureaucratic, slow decision-making, culture mired in old ways despite advertising to the contrary. front-line workers and managers have dwindling resources

    Advice to Management

    Invest back into the frontline, customer-facing folks. Evaluate long-time executives, directors and managers who don't walk the talk. Prioritize the customer first, employee second and Wall Street last - you've got it backwards today.
