    Pros

    Staff, Surrounded by professionals, Opportunity and location.

    Cons

    Managemant whom take advantage of staff. I worked in a professional office building. I was hired to do menial work however, once they noticed how educated I was and my skills I was given projects that upper management didn't want to do without receiving compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Never take advantage of your staff. If you hire someone, treat them as you would like to be treated.

    Pros

    Great Scientists around, especially, who are at BCM or TCH for many years.

    Cons

    Mid level scientists are hard worker and easygoing, however, they never get noticed. Credit goes to Senior management all the time.

    Advice to Management

    Allow mid level management, group leader, junior Faculties etc to anonymously discuss the issues of the department with the higher authority.

    Pros

    The clients and customers made it a great place to provide service.

    Cons

    The hours working was long sometime from 8am-8pm know quality time to spend with your family. When I left I was completely burnt out. The common phase used was overworked and underpaid.

    Advice to Management

    Treat all your staff the same no matter what department or clinic they serve. Be more supportive with your staff when issues arise instead of running from the problem. Great customer service starts at the TOP with the leaders.
