    Pros

    Overall team is great, always have the chance to learn more.

    Cons

    For a healthcare company the pay is low management needs more training lack of moral, they push employees to the point where some people have nightmares if the place. Lots of micromanaging one must be ready for lack of communication.

    Very high turn over

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the people in the floor who deal with the customers daily, stop making changes that only cause more grief. No equality lots of favouritism no employee functions. Overall for a large organization you'd expect so much more but all you have is employees you come to work to look for work.

    Understand the types of people that are leading or managing. Some have been moved to positions because of behavioral issues towards others and are not properly held accountable.
