      Pros

      Wonderful team, great people to work with.

      Cons

      Upper management and directors do not listen to feedback that the staff gives about patient volume, scheduling, creating an overwhelming work environment where everyone is constantly burned out, and stressed out. Absolutely no work/life balance, hours are long and inconsistent and it's very unlikely that you get a regular schedule. PTO requests are due 6 months ahead of time making it nearly impossible to take time off, and even if you do get your requests in on time there's no guarantee it will be approved if there is no coverage for your shift. The culture is to pick up shifts, work overtime, reduce or entirely skip breaks, stay late, and if you don't do that you're shamed or reprimanded by management. People constantly call in sick because they're exhausted and that leads to staff shortages, increased stress, and often management and staff declines to block schedules and reduce patient volume to accommodate. Ultimately there is extremely high turnover, which means there is almost always someone new training and that also puts strain on the work. Always lots of pressure from above to work faster and with fewer mistakes while piling more and more tasks and responsibilities -- most of which are tedious and unnecessary -- as well as stuffing the schedule with more and more patients. Staff would speak up against this and advocate against it, and management would ignore the feedback only to sometimes dial things back months later, but by that time many staff had already left.
