    Pros

    Great culture and company vision. Emphasis on ethics, work life balance and continuing education support.

    Cons

    There is a lack of competitive compensation and promotion from within. Company policies developed to reduce employee abuse of leap frogging through promotions to gain an increase in salary have caused the inability for legitimate increases to be awarded from within and now employees question whether they should leave and come back just to be able to be hired back on at the desired promoted position for the greater amount of pay that would be offered to a new hire rather than from within. There is a disconnect to rewarding loyalty.

    Time off for vacation, sick and personal are all rolled into one bucket - not comparable to most other companies.

    Pros

    Always take the high road; investing heavily in infrastructure that is sustainable; integrity in running the most successful healthcare company in the world. Leading by example in the industry; demonstrating efficiency without sacrificing quality.

    Cons

    Not a place to work inefficiently. Pace is invigorating and not for those who prefer to relax while working

    Pros

    Tuition reimbursement; PTO; benefits; 401k;

    Cons

    Seems like they pick and choose what qualifications are necessary for promotions within the company based on how much leadership likes you personally. A lot of politics and unfair advantages for people that are good at talking their way through their jobs and not very good at performing their job duties.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More communication
