    Pros

    The company was very flexible with work-from-home policy. However, this varies office by office and position as well.

    Cons

    The senior management on the Medicare side was trending more and more to folks with a Medicaid background and no sales experience.

    Advice to Management

    The company needs to be more transparent with regards to the financial results within the various entities, in particular, the sales orgaizations.


  3. CEO/President's philosophy does not translate to across

    Great benefits
    Friendly and laid back work environment
    Opportunity for advancement
    fast paced environment

    Cons

    Inadequate orientation process
    mgmt expects staff to be self-starters and motivators, very little support to develop in role or position
    "You're always interviewing for your next position," is a common mantra and philosophy that affects perceptions of success

    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 Management

    Continue to support your employees.

    Pros

    Leaders and managers really appreciate you, and they challenge you professionally. Pay and benefits are well above average. It is a culture of accountability. It is ill-suited for people who want to do nothing and collect a paycheck. Telework options available to many.

    Cons

    You have to wait one year for the company's 401(k) match.

    Advice to Management

    Management should continue focusing on employee engagement and maintain communication flow. I have complete trust and faith in the leadership here.

    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.
