    Pros

    Good health, dental and 401 k plan

    Cons

    Depending on the facility, outcomes are more important than the staff that care for the patients. Staff are eventually are licensed bodies and nothing more than that.

    Advice to Management

    Be good to your staff and in turn they will be good to you. Multiple people just don't leave a job without a good reason.
