    Pros

    awesome workers to work with and the experience to get your feet at the door for career.

    Cons

    Working at home is not what they say until you finish your specialties and good performances. Never a settling job and no goals to achieve on work. Poor training due to shortage of analyst and never a stable work environment. Always new management or manager comes and go, which ruins your ability and the work to be effective because it's always changing constantly. They say flexible schedule but literally not. There's no increase negotiable for salary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Read policy carefully in every detail you can because it is a union and you have rights. If it's not documented it's not done. Speak up and know that you have rights. Good experience but wouldn't recommend to be permanent.

    I worked at Hennepin County Medical Center full-time

    Pros

    Staff are compassionate about the patient population. Many of Minnesota's physicians were trained at HCMC in medical school, residencies or fellowships.

    Cons

    Many doctors have leadership titles and salaries, but aren't held accountable for changing physician culture. Maybe new CEO will make a difference. There is not a burning platform for being the "best." Good enough seems good enough seems to be the prevailing attitude.
