    Pros

    Aside from being gainfully employed and enjoying the company of my coworkers there are very few pros that come to mind.

    Cons

    Southern Maine Medical Center recently had a consulting /efficiency firm visit the hospital to look for ways to save money. The result was a significant amount of lay-offs and benefit reductions amongst other changes. There is very minimal opportunity for pay raises or bonuses. the max pay raise is 2% per year. The majority of these issues are a reflection of the financial state of the hospital due to outside factors but it does not change the fact that the cons far outweigh the pros.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The person with the higher degree is not always the best choice for the job. Also managers or leaders should have some kind of leadership training.
