    I have been working at Covenant Health (Tennessee) full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good benefits and that's about all!

    Cons

    Too much red tape to complete projects, told repeatedly to do more with less at the cost of patient care. Micromanaging is rampant in my department. Telework is frowned upon for corporate employees to save a buck, even during a pandemic. But it depends on who you are whether or not they will accommodate special requests to do telework.
