    1. Compensated with raises and bonuses for going above-and-beyond. Work quality was closely monitored.
    2. Great organization and communication within my team.

    The negative impression others (and sometimes myself) have of managed care. It is a necessary evil, but not like ministering to the poor or working to cure cancer.
