    I worked at DeKalb Medical full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, especially tuition reimbursement

    Cons

    I was laid off along with other co workers in my office and the way my managers and supervisors handled the situation showed they never cared about us anyway. One of my co workers was pregnant and got laid off and they never offered to her help with taking out her boxes to the car . We always had meetings about how they cared and want to see us grow. Lies, Lies. Oh as for my pregnant coworker, her baby shower was supposed to be the following Monday, but we got laid off 4 days before. I think management planned it that way to avoid her shower. Those were some dirty you know what in that department and HR sucks too. Thank God Emory is taking over and I hope they clean house.

    Advice to Management

    Stop with the lies and being fake.
