      Pros

      Support allows you to run your location as you need to. You have the ability to serve families with the utmost respect as you should.

      I can't really think of any downfalls at this moment.

      Pros

      Work experience, not micromanaged, rotational weekends, pay is fair, good co-workers, insurance is ok but could be better

      Cons

      Poor management, not family friendly, corporate office is not helpful or supportive, unfair scheduling, management looks down in their loyal elderly workers and treats them very poorly, some who were loyal for over 2 decades.

      Pros

      Plenty help from IT and when you called in to need, legal, sales or otherwise Kept their licenses up and helped

      Cons

      They do not listen to the location staff and gauge the communities or areas they are in its always if it works in the big cities it works everywhere else. DOSs where a dime a dozen and none of them offered anything to the table but to gripe and whine to the MPs about numbers. Upper management well if they decided to come down once a year or two off their heavenly cloud you can count yourself lucky. Treated as a number, they hire managers with little to no experience and it shows and who treated staff even worse.
