    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.

    Pros

    Great name for your resume. But only if you are a Orthopedic surgeon.

    Cons

    Toxic work environment in Finance HR and IT functions. The organization culture is like how things were in the 1950s. Command and control is the way this place works. My way or the highway is the belief of senior leadership. Processes are non-automated and staff are put through mental hassle to deal with the pain of dealing with the age old processes. My advice - stay away if you are not a doctor. They will work you to death. The compensation structure limits outside options as they pay a heavy base and no bonus.

    Advice to Management

    Clean up senior leadership and bring in fresh sets of eyes. The Finance HR and IT functions are being lead by senior baby boomers and they are not in touch with reality.
