    Pros

    Stability, Intelligent People, Work-life balance, positive, stable and growing industry, office downtown, free parking,

    Cons

    Inconsistent or outdated systems at HQ, usual corporate issues like red tape, lots of paperwork, action hindered by need for compliance, benefits aren't fantastic. All employees at HQ are in cubes. Very little to no privacy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make time to speak with "the troops" in order to learn about issues that aren't visible at your level. We've had some new senior executives (on the job for 6-12 months) who appear to be clueless about issues that have been around for years and can affect company performance, profitibality and morale.

    Pros

    Support from sr. mgmt. staff has been helpful and challenging at the same time. I appreciate all their efforts.
    Great team players from the ground up.

    Cons

    Unknown future if we are in the process of changing owners, with possible changes there will be probable cut backs. Staff always keep this thought in the back of their minds especially with the change in economy and the way medicine is practiced.
