    Pros

    Good PTO, Learn a lot regarding Case Management in the hospital setting, and you get to see your work from start to finish. Moderately paced environment

    Cons

    Senior leadership can sometimes be all over the place. You're doing all the work the Director doesn't want too and I honestly don't think she really does anything besides go to meetings and tell you what they asked her to do. Sometimes there's no organization or flow in your day-to-day.
