    Pros

    medical insurance free for employee only

    Cons

    Upper Management sucks! A lot of favoritism, if you are not part of the kiss butt team, you will have lot of problems with upper management. Upper management like to pick on you even if you're doing your work and meeting productivity. Don't come here PBS 8th floor

    Advice to Management

    Need to stop having favorites and catering to them because they aren't doing their work but you love them. You want to pick on the ones that are doing their work

    Pros

    The benefits are superb. You accumulate a lot of vacation time.

    Cons

    Poor management, poor work/life balance, no advancement unless you're a nurse, social worker, or yo know someone who can help yo advance. Qualifications aren't looked at by HR when you apply for positions. Also education doesn't matter when it comes to advancement. Lastly, you don't have a voice. If you voice your opinion management retaliates.

    Advice to Management

    Managers should be required to take classes several times a year to make them more effective leaders. There should be more room for advancement and not just for friends of management.
