    Pros

    great food options, everything looks nice on the inside

    Cons

    too much favoritism in the transplant center, people who stay there stay because they have nowhere else to go, extroverts are praised and considered to me smarter than introverts although research says opposite, salary does not even equal what competitor transplant centers offer, inappropriate language being used in workplace, nosy coworkers, no sense of privacy, coworker doing homework at work, management doesn't listen to employees until they have had enough and is ready to leave. To sum it up….way too much favoritism here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    each employee counts and the ones with the biggest mouths usually are the problem
