    Pros

    Big company with individuality within each health plan. Good experience overall. Lots of growth. Confident they will continue to grow.

    Cons

    Sometimes I felt they chose to grow before the foundation was fully settled. The growth part is amazing but the opportunity to get things right before moving on was shirt lived.

    Advice to Management

    Never lose sight of the bottom rung employees. I worked in management and saw some upper management lose sight of this.

    Get a better system to work claims on. Get better internet provider. Stick to your decisions you will never figure it out while you keep flip flopping back and forth and not giving enough time to see the results.
