    Great place to work for first time job experience

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGet exposed t wide range of responsibilities and obtain skills. Plenty of opportunities to learn new skill and progress

    ConsSometime the size of the institution can be daunting to adjust. One needs to put a lot of effort to adapt to a highly regulated hospital industry.
