    Pros

    Good training team, company values are high for patient care, they strive to be the best and take care of the patients. Upper upper management are all very nice and receptive to positive and negative feed back. They try to make changes to benefit positive outcome. The company has team building events and different things throughout the year to promote employee appreciation.

    Cons

    They promote people who are friends or who drink the coolade not based on knowledge. Some middle mgt throw people under the bus to account for dept failures blaming everyone else when they, mgt, doesn't have a clue , dont take action with the supervisors on the team not following through or doesn't use the information given to them to make the necessary changes to procedures to get things done right the first time. They run people out of their jobs that DO have a clue. It's a shame middle management can't be as professional and considerate as upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is for UPPER management, investigate issues brought to you about middle management. So many good and knowledgeable people have been run out if your company. You strive to be the best, don't be blindsided by the ones who put on the act.
