    Pros

    Opportunity for growth, collaborative environment, practices medicine at a higher level than most institutions, interested in employee and customer satisfaction.

    Cons

    It's a large place and until you have been there a while can be difficult to learn where to go to access resources. They are available, you just have to take the time to learn how to navigate the large system.

    Pros

    They have great salaries, good benefits and Tuition Reimbursement

    Cons

    Company Politics that prevent an employee from moving up.

    Advice to Management

    Roles need to be clearly defined and all of the extra demands need to cut out and just let people work!

    Pros

    This a real family oriented place. They care about you and everyone is nice here. The people can be sometimes standoffish but it may mean that they're really busy

    Cons

    The fact that full time workers do not have to opportunity to work over time. They have a strict clock in and clock out regimen.

    Advice to Management

    Try making it easier for people to get around besides the sky bridge area. There can be other mobile ways to transport people.

    Pros

    Challenging Multi cultural Good teamwork Great employee resources/training Excellent benefits (medical is free - dental/vision $40 roughly per month) Employee perks

    Cons

    Limited growth: many assistants train or perform senior or exclusive assistant roles with no salary/title change. Most coworkers haven't been promoted in over five years. High turn over. Hard to switch into a different field. Coworkers lack education (only one of two with college education) Coworkers tend to be a little more rough around the edges

    Pros

    Medical insurance is paid for; PTO is given at the end of every month; Department is really good about work/life balance

    Cons

    You have to pay for parking; It is mandatory for you to contribute to TRS; Unable to use PTO within the first six months; Unable to change department for a year; Pay is not competitive

    Advice to Management

    Try offering something to the people that choose to pay for parking. It is not cheap! Also, when you put people in management positions, please make sure that they don't run your entire staff away.
