    Upper management wants each employee to grow. They pay for your college tuition.

    Pros

    -Benefits, work life balance, co-workers, 'feel good industry', downtown location

    Cons

    -Leadership/Board doesn't seem to make the right decisions, Stock granted is not worth anything so not a good indication of overall salary/pay. Leadership/Board of Directors seem to think of the stock only and not as much about growing the company, thinking of the patient first (one of the values!)...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let people on the front line make decisions and listen to them - stop making poor decisions that impact stock and physician's decision to use the product.
