    Current Employee - Manager, IT in South San Francisco, CA

    Pros

    Work-life balance
    Personal Excellence Program
    Company buses to several regions in bayarea

    Cons

    Too many politics. No focus on patients or customers. Everybody is for their own. Too depressed staff due to several rounds of reorganization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a grip. Saving money isn't everything. Provide value to business by innovation. In the business we are in, saving a few dollars isn't going to make a difference compared to the immense potential new investments can make.
