    Pros

    Most of the people I work with are great to be around.

    Next to impossible to improve things. The administration does not seem interested in making employees lives easier. My building doesn't' have a good janitorial staff. Bathrooms, employee areas, and patient rooms stay dirty.

    Advice to Management

    Don't require employees to perform duties that are completely opposite of the position they agreed to do, just to save money on hiring another employee.
