    Pros

    Good commute, the organization really does care about it's members.

    Cons

    Too many cliques and if you were a temp, you were included but they made a clear distinction on the fact you weren't one of them.

    Pros

    I have nothing positive to say about this company

    Cons

    Different pay for different people although they are doing the exact same job when the one getting paid less is the one doing the most work.

    Employees that are known for not pulling their weight are still allowed to work while others are picking up their slack

    Advice to Management

    Pay your hard working employers what they are worth and stop being so cheap!

    Pros

    The company has a good mission
    Co-workers are generally intelligent and well-meaning
    Local managers could either be very good or very poor

    Cons

    Local management was erratic, but regional and national leaders were not qualified, "politically connected" appointees, who brow beat local management for failures that existed throughout the system
    They consistently and repeatedly failed to spend money on fixing the underlying root causes of issues / infrastructure, but simply created additional "task forces" and "swat teams" to put bandaids on things until the next time they blew up

    Management demonstrates favoritism. Gives award and positive reinforcement to favorite employees even those who do not follow the policies

    Pros

    Good for entry level people wanting to get into managed care. Employees are dedicated to the Medicaid population at all levels.

    Cons

    Employees aren't valued for their experience, initiative or hard work by senior management. Little, if any, flexibility in schedules and no work at home opportunities. Senior management is excessively controlling and stifles creative thinking. In spite of this many employees continue to focus on the member and receive personal rewards for a job well done.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to acknowledge the abundance of talent within the organization and foster this. Loosen the reigns and allow decision isn't making throughout middle management. Treat your employees with the respect they deserve- not just your favored departments

    Pros

    They pay dbl time and a half on holidays

    Cons

    No chance for advancement. You are better off going elsewhere.. To much favoritism and due to this, I find it a hostile environment. LPNs supervising RNs. LPNs making more money than some RNs. High turn over rate. High firing rate. It's sad because I see a lot of good people leaving everyday.

    Advice to Management

    No comment... management only looking out for themselves and you are just a number. Can never change that with this company.
