    Pros

    Great Benefits, great people, and good working conditions. They pay them most in the field that I work in, Anatomic Pathology, they are flexible with schedule.

    Cons

    There isn't really a way to climb or get into leadership in the company. You are kind of stuck where you and no way of climbing a career ladder you are just stuck where you are for the whole time you are there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please help those that want leadership to get into those positions quicker.
