    Pros

    good coworkers, competitive pay and benefits

    Cons

    senior leadership hired friends and promoted people based on politics rather than qualifications. Senior leadership often bypassed official policies and procedures to get their way. Had zero faith in their vision and abilities.

    Advice to Management

    If your goal is to hire people as quickly as possible rather than finding the right candidate, you will continue to experience problems with turnover. Especially when the hired person does not meet the qualifications of the position.

    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.
