    Pros

    Good pay benefits some of the doctors are good. Some of the time the job was good

    some management, you are throwing your programs away because you don’t know what you’re doing and to their bosses, they need to pack it in.

    Pros

    They offer Great overtime pay

    Constant changes in management. Management picks her favorites and likes to drive others out. Constantly short staffed and unsafe conditions.

    Listen to employees about problems that are going on. Stop making management like they are always right. If there’s a large turn around in staff, there must be a problem right?
