Don't apply to work here if you are afraid of hard work.

Pros

1) Employee benefits, compensation -- a company that tries hard to do the right thing by its employees 2) High growth company, lot's of opportunities for advancement (if you are willing to re-locate) 3) Innovative company in the health care space 4) Every employee shares in the rewards that come from solid financial performance

Cons

1) If your personal life is significantly more important than your work life or career, think carefully before you apply to work here. 2) If you can't deal with the chaos that unprecedented growth brings, think carefully before you apply to work here.

    Pros

    Opportunities to participate in many activities that would normally be out of scope in my role.

    Cons

    Ineffective recruiting and filling of needed roles, poor preparation and training for new staff, chaotic environment and exhausted employees. Negative reinforcement and threats from leaders rather than support and preparation.

    Advice to Management

    Considerable opportunities to support the growth over the long run are lost as creativity and effectiveness suffer under fear and exhaustion.

    Pros

    should be able to have good opportunities to be promoted if you are doing well (have good performance review by a good manager who gets along with you), and fit in. compensation is reasonable. Good cafe, free parking.

    Cons

    new teams are established and managers tend to make arbitrary judgement on right/wrong people to hire. When hired "wrong" people at a high level (high pay as well) who don't perform accordingly, they change strategy by starting everyone at a lower level - seems like an unfair punishment to new hires to me.
