    I worked at Best Doctors full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good workers overall good environment to work
    In general you will find good people in the company, sadly top management at some departments is very toxic.

    Cons

    Very very toxic management in some areas of the company
    Psyco level of micro management with no reason at all, built in on their natural management "skills"
    Very cheap mentallity in general, when dealing with budgets, employees, company events.
    Low morality in management. Extremelly distrustful management, psyco grade I'm talking here... ie: They can call you home insinuating your are not sick when you take days off to attend your health, teams get invited to company celebrations and management not covering the bills after the fact.
    Managers firing employees for personal reasons not related to performance without consulting with team workers. No respect at all to senior workers and their contributions, no recognition.
    There is an employee exodus currently going on also, many people leave the company or get fired on monthly basis despite their level of importance or contribution.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to management:
    We are in 2018 and in USA, the 3rd world country "patroncito" style mentality is detrimental on an agile team setup.
    Be truthful defending your employees rights, instead of fabricating lies to side up with toxic managers.
    Advice to upper management: Rethink the strategy set above, do not support their deceiving practices when treating employees conflicts, pay your workers a decent rate
