    Pros

    stable job, close to me

    Cons

    supervisor is clueless, manager is clueless, they don't care about this place...so why should anyone else care?? supervisor creates a toxic environment, makes it more and more hard to come to work. people are ok and share the same sentiment. They pay just above minimum for having to know everything about how this massive company works, so many things to remember and do, you only hear about mistakes you make - NOT... WORTH THE 15 BUCKS

    Advice to Management

    move on with your lives and allow someone with passion to take over. I feel bad for all patients and doctors using this company. Management does not. check gets deposited just the same.

    Advice to Management

    Rely more on the ideas and expertise of people on the ground, not everything needs to be implemented from above.
