    Pros

    Excellent benefits, superb physicians, wonderful to be part of the modern advances in medicine.

    Cons

    Leadership at the top level is very poor.. Departmental Administrator was fabulous, recognizes the value of an employee... yet, even with excellent reviews the Chief of the department seems to have the final decision to terminate an employee when they are not even familiar with the work ethics of the individual.
