    Pros

    They bring in top physicians and have wonderful nursing care. The atmosphere in clinic is high energy, organized and everyone's top priority is patient care.

    Cons

    Lots of CRCs, who are intelligent and hard working leave the hospital to work in CROs. This leaves patients who participate and could benefit from research, at a loss. I knew a lot of CRCs and some of their PIs were wonderful (PIs: Rheumatology, Oncology, Pulmonary are awesome!) but other division's PIs were downright mean and unfair to their CRCs. Also, your manager will know little about research processes.
