    Pros

    Start of with 4 weeks PTO; You are not the only one doing your job - lots of people to assist with coverage. Pay is on par with the avg

    Cons

    For a network engineer - its a little too SILO'd for me. For example - as a network engineer in the datacenter, I like to unbox a new switch, rack it, stack it, cable it, configure it, and operate/maintain it. What I just listed is done by 6 different people operating in their own SILO's.

    For example, there is someone that specs out heating/cooling and the physical layout of where the switch goes, then someone else unboxes/screws it in, then someone else installs modules/plugs the data cables in, then someone else configures it and powers it on.

    Also - since its a Healthcare company that operates under HIPPA rules - things are locked down so tight that its impossible to get your stuff done realistically.

    Also - they use HSA for their benefit package - unless you are Grade 25 or below (Desktop Support Analyst) you cannot have a PPO. (Network Engineers typically start at Grade 27ish) An HSA is where you have to contribute x dollars a month into a Savings Account and you are responsible for the first 3500 - 4500 dollars of your health costs. Full coverage kicks in after that. So if you are a healthy jock - this works against you. If you have a terminal condition - this is the best package for you. After the initial deductable - 100% coverage kicks in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to offer a PPO

    corporate world, runs by the policy only with no personal touch at all. Usually, immediate management is not capable of doing anythign outside of thier scope and relate to HR policies
