    Pros

    Good food in the restaurant on the 14th floor

    Cons

    Leadership is incredibly corrupt, to the extent that even in their leadership meetings they LAUGHED about how few days the press spent paying attention to the whistle blower settlement they got the January I worked there.
    They skim overtime off their employees' pay and make people work off the clock, and understaff their clinics to the point of being dandergous for patient care, which is well documented.
    They have big hoopla surrounding their values and it's just that, pretty icing on cupcakes with zero nutritional value or substance. Their benefits are awful, as well. They are one ofbthe biggest conoanoesninnthe world and they dont even do 401K match foe their employees, and they count the 10 paid holidays against the "two weeks of PTO". IE: you actually get only 4 days PTO on top of the holidays they deem are paid.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to some real morals fast.
