    Pros

    It's a job, and as long as you do it, you feel pretty secure.

    Cons

    Low pay, low raises that don't even cover the increasing cost of their health insurance. They offer benefits, but the employee cost is so high that it's really hard to swing. So in essence one makes less every year, even with the "raises". And because the medical insurance is so high and doesn't even kick in until you're forked over $1300 One can't really afford to go to the doctor. I only go if it's an emergency. They're getting rid of work from home and employee benefits are few and far between. Cost cutting is everywhere due to the "bad" economy, and then one hears about the record breaking profits every quarter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The good ones leave or are let go and the incompetent ones remain.

    I worked at CorVel full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Long history of managed care.

    Cons

    WAS great place with GREAT management until 5 years ago. Then had a CEO change everything to "maximize" the billing. They removed all perks (paid luncheons, no Christmas, no good raises, no incentives) and bonus is 3 month rolling (if you take a vacation-you start over). Would not hire additional help to cover high end times when other CM's quit. FCM files could not get the attention unless you worked till midnight - in which they demanded. Corvel used to be a great place to work...and now it is all about continued harassment to "capture billing" for anything in which resulted in a loss of several accounts. GREED doesn't pay. To use the RN's for just mere profit and NOT allow us to be RN's is a disgrace. Good assessment and development of trust with injured workers are vital to get the IW back to work. Corvel demands you "bill" during these times instead of developing the relationship and obtain accurate assessments - which results in "angry, unhappy and untrusting IW. If you have DOL files, they will take half your income while you do all the work. This affects the whole outcome. I would not ever consider working for this company, the bridge was burned with them. A house divided will fall and Corvel is doing it. Check out all the lawsuits online against them, I was appalled!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the continued harassment, allow the CM's to work their files. Don't fix something that was NEVER broke in the first place.

    Pros

    Nice, quiet, and professional location. Good starting point for a young person looking to gain professional experience. Virtually unlimited overtime when I was there.

    Cons

    Terrible pay. Very shady management. Hush hush on a lot of decisions that would be implemented. People constantly in fear of sling their jobs. Uptight environment.

    Pros

    The camaraderie between co-workers, great outside teaching and learning opportunities with in house availability of CEU's, and great opportunity to network with outside vendors.

    Cons

    Poor disinterested management with lack of communication regarding loss of accounts, inability to affect change at the local level, poor in-house recruiting or incentives, very poor company match for retirement accounts, and major increase in health care premuims/co-pays. No year to year raises despite meeting high QA, and no separation package.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't lay off ALL your experienced staff and shuffle those that are left when accounts come and go, that is the insurance business. Leadership at the local level needs to be able to do what is necessary to retain high quality and experienced staff with incentives ( telecommute opportunities, raises and bonuses, remote training and education opportunities, etc ) as needed. Leadership needs to be engaged and interested in what their staff have to say, are doing and need to improve job performance. Improving morale with better communication, team building and incentives on an ongoing basis. Improve performance reviews to at least quarterly, with performance tied to bonuses/raises. You are an insurance company, health care should not take such a huge chunk of my pay check! the company makes millions yet a meager amount is matched in your 401K ( $300 for 2014). GIVE LOCAL MANAGEMENT AUTHORITY TO MAKE DECISIONS! When the building flooded, it took hours for management to decide to close the office even after the building manager told them there was no electricity, main frames were down and it was not safe to be in the building )

    Pros

    Some people are great other not so much just like anywhere else.

    Cons

    When I was employed there the communication from upper management to middle management was extremely poor. It could have just been my region which I understand that things have changed.

    A Dilbert Situation for Non-Programmers

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at CorVel full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you're a business school graduate, it seems to be a great and challenging atmosphere to test theory and possibly make changes. If you have an interest in the medical field, even the admin side, there might be enough to keep you engaged. For anyone with any other interest, I'd suggest it as an okay holding place while actively searching for a better position. It could be an acceptable paycheck for those in a multi-income household.

    Cons

    Stripped down work-force, IT department paranoid and protected enough that duties that could be automated are piled on employees to be done by hand, some lower echelon pockets encourage a policy of lying to management to avoid blame for falling behind in overworked status, have seen city-to-city office rivalries poorly affect quality of service to clients, fairly high turnover, have heard sales people say internally that company is offering services nobody wants.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I saw sales people with used to having assistants who had none, and would try to pressure overworked folks from other departments to do their work for them. I saw plots to lie to management due to a culture of fear around being honest about inability to meet deadlines without proper manpower and resources. I saw employees so terrified of going some sick that they were wiling to spread the illness to the entire office rather than get any further behind than they already were. I saw people working additional jobs from their desks because the company doesn't pay well. The best and brightest of the lower echelons left early, while those those poor boundaries and self-esteem stayed until the bitter end. I watched fresh-faced professionals get discouraged when they realized their situation. It's a somewhat acceptable paycheck and a placeholder on a resume, but not much more for people who aren't fascinated by business or medicine.
