    Pros

    Great people and a solid pay with strong work life balance. They are looking for talent and building great teams to improve many departments. Patients are the center of the work

    Cons

    Very conservative traditional office culture. Siloed organization. Rough financial times for the company means raises and bonuses are scarce.

    Advice to Management

    ReOrganize!!! Way too many VPs in charge of business major functions that they are not experts in and are not qualified to lead. Get out to our facilities and really try to understand how we can do our work better. Establish a vision and publicly champion it. It must be more that EBIDTA results.
