    Great name if you are on the clinical side

    Can’t think of anything else

    Cons

    Toxic work environment, incompetent leadership/ no support from Management. Can not express your opinion and if you do you will be bullied and potentially and get fired. Boring workload, unchallenging work. Low moral. You will not learn anything from this job if you are on the admin side. command and control is the way to go.

    Pros

    exposure to different cultural backgrounds

    Cons

    advancement is at the discretion of a supervisor which means if you are not the favorite, you do not get to move up.

    Advice to Management

    advancement should be based on employee's work, punctuality, work ethics and not solely on supervisor's clearance. also HR should not be asking for evidence if someone feels they are being emotionally targeted.
