    Pros

    U of C is a great employer, and I just love the people that I worked under and with. As an employee of the Occupational Health department I had the opportunity to meet with most of the hospital and university current and new employees and concluded that we had a great group of people working there. My suggestions and ideas were considered, I think I had an impact on my work environment.

    Cons

    I really enjoyed working in there. I only left due to my husbands job relocation. I had planned to retire from there.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to allow staff to be who they are and operate in their strengths, and help develop their weaknesses. A Great Management Team!
