    Pros

    The Work-Life Balance was pretty optimal. My boss was personally fantastic, and I was allowed to choose my own research in a way.

    Cons

    The compensation could have been better. Some people in the program were simply used as free labor.

    Pros

    There are only a few good reasons to work there. Because of its rich history and compensation /benefit package at over well the industry average.

    Cons

    The stress of simply trying not to say, do or be the wrong thing on a daily basis presents a very unhealthy work environment. The overarching goal should be the best possible patient outcomes.

    Advice to Management

    Truly empower your staff and let them know that if they make a mistake trying to make things better that it won't be held against them and that managers will not eliminate their competition by creating strife any termination of employees with out recourse.
