Pros

Great Training Program. Advancement Opportunities abundant. Relocation is possible. Can move from one division to a different division. Salaries are comparable to industry standard

Cons

As in all large Companies the employee or Manager can seem like just a number or a statistic. Creativity is downplayed by all of the standard procedures

    Pros

    insurance benefits, 401k program, vacation

    Cons

    Chef position has become a "data entry" paper pushing job. No cooking involved what so ever. So much waste of paper...must be killing millions of trees! Annual review is not done on actual work performance rather if you read a specific book or did community service.....

    Advice to Management

    Upper managers say one thing and do the opposite.

    Pros

    Free meal, decent training, co-workers were generally friendly, good experience with dealing with all kinds of headaches with customers / management / etc Honestly, if you really need to work this can be a good starting point, but over the long haul it will wear you out.

    Cons

    Wasn't so bad at first but as time went on it came to the point where I just hated going in every day. Never enough time to get everything they want done but they're always on you about watching your overtime. While it felt like a lot of people work there we were short staffed and you could feel the pinch when more than one person was sick. I've seen bad workers kept on, good workers let go, and a co-worker baited with the possibility of a supervisor position (and even took on the extra tasks of that position) only to have the opening never materialize. On top of all the stress coming from management/corporate end you also have to deal with high stress hospital staff who can be rude, demeaning, sly or even outright try to take stuff. Burnout in the end - quit and found a much less stressful job for about the same pay.

    Advice to Management

    Honestly I can't think of any suggestions because they'd probably be duly noted and ignored.
