    The reputation of the company is unsurpassed. The benefits are great- starting on the first day of hire. Chance for plenty of overtime if you are interested.

    Sometimes there are staffing problems. I know they can't be helped. Weekends also bring a lot of staffing problems. Other than that, there really aren't a lot of cons.

    Cons

    Benefits are terrible. They use to be good, but not anymore. Good luck advancing. Directions and rules change without warning and nobody takes the blame or acknowledges that they changed. Instead they make you feel terrible. Company politics are crazy. They are about "diversity", how about just treating everyone with respect? There is also the good old boys club mentality with some men in management that view women as less educated. Had an high level man curse and scream at me just because he had a bad day. Maybe it isn't the whole company, or maybe it is.

    Advice to Management

    Feinberg doesn't get it. Teach management to make decisions and own their decisions. Break up the boys club!
