    Pros

    The benefits are really good. Once you are hired, it is hard to get fired from here, So I've heard.
    Corporate discounts.

    Cons

    None that are a deal breaker

    Advice to Management

    give discounts on food in cafeteria for employees would be nice. It really adds up even if only buy once or twice a week. And bring back the fun employee appreciation week and things like that that I always her about.

    Pros

    meaningful work that made me feel like i was making a real difference. Working with important populations to solve some critical issues. The hospital is beautiful and in great shape.

    Cons

    There was really no room for upward mobility unless you went to medical school. I hit a wall and couldn't advance. Would have been great if I was happy to keep doing what i was doing.
