    Pros

    The process for career advancement is very transparent. All jobs have clear descriptions and it is easy to find the expectations you need to meet to advance your career.

    Cons

    They expect you to work 20% overtime all the time. That is an unofficial metric they use to compare associates. You are also put oncall 24/7 with out additional compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Allow more external training.

    Pros

    I guess the compensation is decent, although there's no pay for overtime.

    Cons

    Long hours, a 60 hour work week is not uncommon to finish a project
    Upper management that doesn't care about employees and only its bottom line
    Clunky and slow health information software that is far behind the competition
