    Coworkers really care about patients and their jobs, managers and coworkers want to see you succeed, many company benefits and perks and willing to work with you, very flexible

    Cons

    As with any hospital, a good amount of red tape. Changes take a long time to get implemented. Lack of space for outpatient clinics is always an issue unfortunately

    Pros

    Amazing benefits, great coworkers and established a nice work-life balance. The company truly cares about its employees and encourages community service as well as ways to improve and innovate within the company.

    Cons

    The contact center can sometimes feel like it's micromanaged as "numbers" are one of the top priorities. But at the same time, management is good with making you feel seen and valued.
