    I have been working at Duke University Health System full-time

    Pros

    Good work life balance, good pay, good culture.

    Cons

    You don't leave a company, you leave a manager. I had the best manager for 6 months as a contractor. Hired full-time and the new manager is untrustworthy. Speaks out of both sides of her mouth. HR is no help.

    Advice to Management

    Migration to agile needs management endorsement. Project Managers are asked to drive the utilization and acceptance of agile across various teams, but given no authority to implement change.
