    For Profit Corporation

    Staff CT Technologist (Former Employee) Nashville, TN

    ProsMany many Locations nation wide

    ConsIts a big corporation with little concern for line employees who get conflict with providers

    Advice to Senior ManagementHave more of a back-bone. just as there are "many people in line waiting for a staff position," there are likewise many providers waiting in line for a clinical position. There needs to be a better reviews process outside the department and mediated more objectively.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
