    Pros

    Decent PTO, low health insurance premiums, regular work hours, supportive coworkers, FMLA and ADA accommodations

    Cons

    LVPG employees feel left out of the company, much responsibility placed on PSRs without acceptable compensation, low raises and bonuses are based on network performance - not individuals

    Advice to Management

    Adjust raises to reflect individual employees' effort; have more transparency; involve LVPG in network functions (we often cannot make it to the hospital campuses on our 30 minute lunch breaks)

    Pros

    Awesome benefits and current CEO seems reasonable and cares about employees. Truly patient centered.

    Cons

    Job security. Frequent small lay offs have staff on edge.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on high performing employees. Sometimes they are overlooked and end up leaving the network. Also the communication cascade is working, staff is more informed and updated than with previous leadership.
