    Pros

    Rock solid company with a good business model and steady cashflow. No shortage of challenging work. I have never been bored!

    Cons

    Very slow to change. Mgmt tries to make this into a "growth" business when it is really a "value" company. Creates a lot of pressure to achieve a high growth rate when it is next to impossible to achieve in the current healthcare environment.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of patients and employees first. then the shareholders will be taken care of handsomely.
