    Pros

    Paychecks are timely. Insurance is ok.

    Confusion reigns. People are hired, trained, and then dismissed for ambiguous reasons on short notice. The churn is amazing. There are no clear lines of command so directions are often at cross-purposes.

    Advice to Management

    Better planning, recruiting.

    Pros

    The techs and support staff are awesome. Lots of team work.

    Cons

    Horrible work environment, long hours, Years without a raise. Toxic management, everyone is fed up. Kim Suggett is a greedy and evil. Don’t work here. This company has zero compassion for patients (also known as customers) and zero integrity. Awesome radiologists, great techs and support staff. But management is focused on growth and abusing anyone to make a few extra hours.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to management: please quit so the company can hire people who actually present the qualities the company states they represent.
