      Pros

      Decent pay, good vacation/ sick time, great health care options (I pay nothing for insurance), good perks, job flexibility, lots of room to move around.

      Cons

      Disorganized, questionable management, it's hard working with other people who don't know their jobs, too many people pass the buck, job security is a 5/10, with a constant fear of layoffs, lack of cohesion between departments, sometimes the company doesn't put patient needs over company needs.
