    Pros

    Great co-workers, semi good benefits, but premiums are a little high for a medical facility.

    Cons

    Some of the downsides are that you have to arrive to the parking garages at least 20 minutes early to catch a shuttle. Parkland does not offer paid holidays, you gave you use your PTO which I think is absurd. Pay raises are not that great and they penalize you during snow days even if you put forth the effort to come into work. Take care if your employees and they will take care if you. Give your current employees all raises, since you could afford this new billionaire dollar hospital, they all work hard and deserve it.

    Advice to Management

    Don't ask your workers for their input and not take their advice.
