    I have been working at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center full-time

    Pros

    An open and inviting community, with people ready to help you learn and develop your skill.

    Cons

    They won't listen to your suggestions regardless of merit, nor do they consider logic a valid reason for understanding a situation. Either you have the degree or you're incompetent

    Advice to Management

    None. There is no fixing a system that believes it self to be correct, if it is inherently destructive.
