Pros

I worked in the IT department, and it was overall a positive experience. The hours were flexible and everyone that works there is really friendly. Learned quite a bit about IT support and working with people. I got a regular raise in pay, as much as 25 cents per semester.

Cons

Sometimes the work is menial, like loading and unloading trucks of equipment. One manager was occasionally condescending, but nice overall. You'll occasionally have other students that are hard to work with, but that's to be expected in any job.

    Pros

    *Chill work environment *Great front office people

    Cons

    *Arrogant, lazy, stubborn, and stuck up employees *Impatient/rude customers *Poor dress code (women wear jeggings) <--- How are they professional? *Poor management *Poor training program (1 day training per station)

    Advice to Management

    *Clearly communicate employee expectations *Create weekly training programs (per station) *Keep personal and professional relationships separate (do not let them intertwine) *Teach employees how to handle customers properly *Teach employees how you want the job done (you are very UNCLEAR of how the job needs to be done)

    Pros

    Good benefits, decent salary, exciting work environment.

    Cons

    Low level support personnel have punitive workloads that border on abusive. The current governor has declared war on the union and he is seeking to freeze our pay raises and slash our benefits packages, as well as severely restricting our rights to collective bargaining. Employees who leave aren't being replaced, only adding to the burden on support staff.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to your mission of providing quality patient care instead of being driven by profit.
