    Pros

    The people that we work with are amazing. We do try to help patients. Benefits are pretty good. Could be better

    Cons

    The whole system runs off fear of losing job. They pile more and more on you and tell you to be thankful you have a job. Training is a bit scarce.

    Advice to Management

    Fight harder for your department.
