    I worked at Parkland Health & Hospital System full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good exposure to various elements related to Information Technology within the medical sector.

    Good entry level opportunity, but may be a bit of a dead end otherwise.

    Cons

    Unless you play the game, your chances to advance appeared limited to me. Less dependent upon your skill set and far more on who you made buddy buddy with.

    Advice to Management

    Foster individual skills and development, look highly upon talent and not an individual's ability to be a sycophant.
