    Pros

    Depending on your location and who you report to, it can be a wonderful place to work. Every experience is determined by who you work for. Currently, in my position, it's a pro. In previous positions within the organization, not so much. Co-works in different departments feel exactly the same way.

    Cons

    Health insurance is so expensive. The lowest amount for family is over $400 a month. If you're working under someone who isn't understanding or nice, life can be quite miserable here. There are bullies that work here and they continue to keep their jobs. Be careful who you work for. You need to really interview the manager as much as they're interviewing you. Also, co-workers can be challenging in certain departments and practice sites. They talk about BOEs (Behaviors of Excellence) but they don't hire or terminate based on that concept.

    Advice to Management

    If you're receiving complaints about a manager, director or VP, there's a reason. A lot of good people will be lost due to the work environment around them. Things need to be done to keep the cordial and good workers and to rid yourselves of those who make it toxic. Toxic practice sites aren't good for the patient or those in the environment.
