      SCH review

      Jun 6, 2021 - Director of Business Operations in Seattle, WA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Staff and leadership are generally pleasant, approachable, and kind. Teams are collaborative and we try to help each other when possible. - Benefits are comparable to other hospitals where I have worked. - Growth opportunity is favorable if you are early on in your career, but may stall as you progress.

      Cons

      - It is difficult for me to see any sort of rapid career progression for myself at this point. - Anti-racism campaign is concerning, triggering to BIPOC employees, reactive to allegations of discrimination, and still largely performative. Prior to this, I would have rated this company a 4 or even a 5.
