Suggestions for improvement

  • Centralization of efforts Ongoing "How to" Workshops New Hire Training - RE: Onboarding

What I like about the company

Professional Development is available. CUMC does care and take care of all of their employees. This company prides themselves in hiring the best employees in the market

What I dislike about the company

I wish that there could be an easy way of doing things. Instead there seems to be a lot of redundancies in functions and roles within the organization. Centralization would be key in hopes of keeping ourselves above water as an organization.
