    I have been working at U.S. Army Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    I love the folks I work with, I Commander COL Weber makes time during lunch and finds someone new to eat lunch with a few time per week.
    Even with all the cutbacks the military faces, it is inspiring to see how much folks pull together

    Cons

    Just like any medical hospital some love their Docs, some don't.
    I have always found the Doctors and staff were professional and accommodating
    The building is 40 old but.... has the greatest updated equipment

    Advice to Management

    Continue to meet and support the staff, they are the first line of the organization.
    Your NCOs, Officers and CIV are awesome
