    I have been working at Froedtert Health full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    ~Time off, Flexibility, Benefits, Options to Float, Pay

    Cons

    ~Constant Management Changes (10+ supervisor changes in the last several years I have been there)
    ~ They are trying to squeeze people out of the company as part of their "consolidation project" and new software they claim will be the answer.
    ~They treat you like a number and not a person
    ~ Favoritism is so over the top right now - no professionalism here in management!
    ~They like to lie to your face all the time.

    Advice to Management

    I gave up, they don't care. Even though they claim to. I have not seen any improvements in my department at all!
