      Pros

      The majority of the staff throughout the hospital, within all job categories, are friendly, knowledgeable and focused on providing excellent patient care. There is a real feeling among employees that you are working with family.

      Cons

      Pros

      you work with a great group of individuals and there is a genuine family atmosphere in many of the patient care units.

      Cons

      Advice to Management

      How about a real cafeteria?
