    Pros

    Excellent benefits, culture, work-life balance.

    Cons

    In my experience, there are some workers who are not held accountable for their daily responsibilities and in some cases management does not do the best job at rectifying these issues.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid of confrontation if it will help the overall group.

    Pros

    The learning environment was great. I really felt that I both contributed during my internship and learned a great deal.
    The culture there is also great. I felt great pride at being part of such a great company that really showed a strong patient and employee focus.

    Cons

    There could be more cross-departmental communication.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage more cross-departmental communication. There are great resources in place that can be used and this would help to spread morale and increase productivity.
