Doesn't Recommend
No opinion of CEO

Pros

Salary and bonuses are great.
Great budget to take out physicians, RNs, PAs, NPs

Cons

Require at educational events at least twice a week.
Little management assistance.
After training people for over a week, they laid off over 100 people. Little time to prove ourselves in two months.
Training wasn't representative of real world experience, only taught to get around problems, not solve them in the work place.

Advice to Management

If you are going to pay train someone, give them at least six months to prove themselves.

    They should bring back the monthly communications meetings,as this was a great way to learn more about the direction of the company and also to have new employees be formally introduced.
