    Pros

    Memories of the good old days. It was once fun to work here and to come in to work each day.

    Cons

    It was once fun to come to work. The environment was of teamwork and collaboration. Since the new president was installed you come in just to impress him. You have to laugh at his jokes and pretend that the endless stories of his business ventures abroad are interesting. Worse is that he has stripped us of all that was worth while. Just horrible leadership. He doesn't inspire anyone. People just put up with the horrible culture he has created long enough to find a way out. Compensation is horrible because he has turned to making cuts so that his numbers look good. He stifles innovation at every turn. Which is rather childish and insecure so people rarely feel worthy of contributing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We desperately need mature level headed leadership in this company. We need professionals with tangible industry experience leading the Specialty Group.

    Pros

    Great co-workers, ok work hours

    Cons

    Hired for call center and made the job sound like it would be a great fit for me. Training was horrible, not enough training and constantly micro-managed. Treated like a child and constantly reprimanded. Company let all former customer care go to save money and should have kept other call centers. Customers highly irate and mad about change.

    Pros

    Work place is nice. They have great soft drinks and hot beverages also.

    Cons

    People are nice front of your face. You will earn rewards for the work you do, but when they don't need you they will say you have poor work performance your quality was bad. Make so many excuses. It would not be right to show them good performance certificate they given to you to prove them wrong. They like people with poor quality with high production.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I really hope management think twice before making such decisions. Its all about your company's reputation. After all its your company.

    Pros

    Serves as great professional experience.

    Cons

    Fast paced, focus is not you but the patients. This is regardless to weather conditions also. There is also a lack of consideration of employees being with their family during the holidays.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more organized and considerate of the individuals that are constantly taking care of the patients and what they need.

    Pros

    Good health benefits, paid vacation, and 401K.

    Cons

    Poor leadership, poor organization. Too many executives uptop that you can't even keep track of who they are or how they even contribute to the company. No bonuses for the people that actually do the work and no respect for hard working employees.

    Pros

    If you are a kiss up or affiliated with a supplier, you are golden

    I became disabled after 11 years at ABC and they couldn't dump me fast enough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to be Bergen #2. You are draining company.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Located in a nice area...for now.

    Cons

    Management is too concerned with face time and not about actual work. Not enough to do. Will be moving the headquarters soon closer to Philly or NJ.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on the quality and quantity of work and less on how many hours are put in by people. People respect companies that value work/life balance.

    Pros

    They have great benefits, but really need work on opportunities for career advancement.

    Cons

    They have recently hired managers with no experience in medical insurance. They have strictly started hiring managers from other call centers who are not well-versed on medical benefits. This has created a disconnect between managers and workers. It has also allowed management to implement unrealistic expectations on the company's staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would like them to take an honest look at their goals and expectations for an 8 hour work day, and realize how impossible their goals are for their employees to meet those goals on a daily basis. Please realize that if one benefit verification call is 30 minutes or more then it will be impossible to consistently meet such high expectations. I would also prefer that the company review their hiring guidelines for program managers, and make it a requirement that those program managers have at least on year of experience of verifying and documenting medical insurance prior to becoming program managers.

    Pros

    The people who are the backbone of the company are great people. Benefits are really good (medical, dental, 401k, etc.), good discounts to other vendors, Ford, Dell, Verizon, and so forth.

    Cons

    NO one cares what you think and changes are being made with no detailed plans. If you are older or have been with the company for a long time, you won't last long. They want to turnover the whole workforce and infuse it with new people. Education and experience are no longer valued, just do what you're told and keep your mouth shut.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up and start listening to the people that are actually doing the work. Dump all the consultants and pay attention to the dedicated loyal people that have given you their blood, sweat, and tears. If things don't change soon not only will the turnover be out of control but every location will have a union.
