    Pros

    Doctors are all top notch, top of their field professionals.
    Benefits are great.
    Interaction with cancer patients (if in job description) can be a life changer.

    Cons

    With such top notch doctors, comes almost impossible demands.
    Excellent leadership in clinics and as managers is absolutely critical. In areas where there is subpar management, everyone really suffers.
    Not as quick promotion potential - everything takes a serious amount of time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't just look at paper qualifications for managing positions. There is lots of talent at this place, though due to its massive size, it's hard to keep track of everyone's performance. A better system needs to be made for employee growth when constantly meeting or exceeding expectations. And harsher punishments need to be made for those that do not perform.
