Pros

Benefits and pay are in the top of our industry.
401k match is amazing and a lot of paid leave.
Atmosphere used to be better, although is still great. Attitudes are generally positive in the work place and open communication is generally accepted.

Cons

Benefits have slowly reduced (although still great)
Atmosphere is much more competitive due to less positions available in the last few years.
Workload has increased significantly as hiring of new staff is slow to respond to demand for work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Better analysis of hiring needs. Work slack from lack of hiring for positions is being taken in by compromising work/life balance with existing staff.

    Pros

    A chance to make real impact on the lives of grievously ill people. Very good benefits, including company shut down the first week of July and the last week of December.

    Cons

    The company is overloaded at the levels of director and above with too many people who spend time meeting, talking, lunching, dining, and interfering with real work. (There are a few notable exceptions.) Most people below these levels are very dedicated professionals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be vigilant and skeptical with senior people describing themselves and their work with profuse superlatives.
