    Pros

    An exciting fast growing company that is great to its employees. They hire top notch individuals and encourage promotion within the organization. Very pleasant environment.

    Cons

    Corporate policy on consultants. They eliminated some consultants that were very much needed at the time. While this was a business decision, they should have backfilled these positions with full time employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to support your employees.

    Pros

    A people-centered organization that is very accommodating to associates. The workplace is very easy-going while maintaining a high level of professionalism.

    Cons

    Because it is a very popular place to work, it can be difficult to get into the front door. This is often accomplished through temp-to-hire.

    It was a good company to enter the corporate setting and still has a lot of potential to grow and advance one's career.

    Pros

    Corporate tried hard to remain competitive with other companies bringing incentive programs, volunteerism and appreciation days to the workplace. I felt like the company was heading in the right direction with its continued growth under former CEO Jim Carlson.

    Cons

    Being acquired at the beginning of the year by WellPoint, the change in corporate dynamics will certainly have its effect on policies and overall office functionality. There will also be a learning curve to having the parent company slowly incorporate their ways into the job processes.
