    Pros

    Great work-life balance. Good pay and benefits. Engaging work environment. You learn a lot about the healthcare industry.

    Cons

    Teams are slightly siloed in everyday work, but there is transparency and openness.

    Advice to Management

    Create more of an entrepreneurial feel for the lower ranks and provide resources and support for ideas coming from the lower ranks.

    Pros

    After 8.5 years I still love coming to work every day. I've held 7 different roles in my tenure. Very quick to promote top performers.

    Cons

    You begin to believe in the work so much it's sometimes hard to realize that there is life outside of athena. However, you love what you're doing so much, and make such great friends doing it, that it doesn't really matter.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening! There has been a noted effort in management listening and it's so important.

    Work life balance isn't completely there yet. Many people work past 6pm. We cant hire enough people fast enough, which makes it stress at times

    Advice to Management

    Promote more from within.
