    Pros

    Health insurance is not terrible

    Cons

    Despite stating they are all about patient care, they are not. They are solely about making money for the top level executives. Micromanagement is insane. Pay is below national average and not enough to live on.

    Advice to Management

    Pay employees better. Stop micromanaging. Stop playing favorites. Treat your employees with respect
