    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    The Department of Public Health is a good place to start working if you are interested in community education related activities. It exposes you to the public on a regular basis and creates a substantial base for ones career.

    Cons

    The type of work done as an epidemiologist varies across bureaus, but the academic epidemiology one learns in class is not used on a regular basis. So, if you are interested in designing studies and applying epidemiological methods, an academic setting may be a bit more suitable.

    Advice to Management

    I believe the leadership has developed a wonderful culture for their employees. However, I believe the should focus on identifying ways of regularly challenging their staff.


  2. "Great"
