    Pros

    Flexible and fun. Coworkers are pleasant and smart. Matrix environment can be challenging at first, but really improves work environment, overall.

    Cons

    A big company, it can seem impersonal and broad. Processes can be slow moving and decisions can take enormous patience to achieve. Many chiefs.

    Advice to Management

    Limit need to constantly reassess, make a decision and follow through, despite late objectioners.

    Pros

    Great people to work with. They care about you at work and personally. They recognize your talent and give you opportunity to advance. Good benefits. Flexible work hours.

    Cons

    Slow pace in the office. Lack of transparency on financials and management, some managers were not entirely honest either. Communication to the top could be time consuming due to many gates.

    Pros

    Excellent health insurance. Directors that are in position are good and knowledgable at what they do, especially on the non-patient care side (finance, revenue cycle management)

    Cons

    There are some managers and supervisors in place that continuously bring the company down whether it be through bad hiring decisions, gossiping about their employees to other employees, or not understanding how their employees do their day to day to functions which would seem pretty important since it's their job to manage and lead them through it. I don't think I've ever worked for a group of people as unprofessional as I do right now.
