    Pros

    Fairly decent pay for the work. Pretty good benefits, too. There is always work to be done, so you never have to worry about job security.

    Cons

    I felt like a nameless, faceless drone when I worked there. I sat in a cubicle and was barely allowed to chat with my coworkers. They promise you promotions and then you don't get them.

    Advice to Management

    Make your employees feel like mature, valuable contributors to the company and they will return the favor!

    Pros

    Small office and small accounts.

    Cons

    To many to type. Working 50 hours, having unqualified upper management in place who know nothing about the sold product.

    Advice to Management

    You get what you pay for regarding staffing and hiring decisions. Are you having fun yet. How is hiring the cheapest salaries working out for you?

    Pros

    Good salary, really nice people.

    Cons

    I was recruited to work on one specific contract, which is why I accepted the position. Shortly after arriving, found out that the contract was not going to renew, and most of the people in my unit, including the supervisor, were actively looking for another job. Despite having many years of experience, I never felt so stupid in my life. This company did no training whatsoever, and had such a dysfunctional computer system that I did not even bother to answer my phone for the first few days because I was trying to figure out the computer and would not have been able to have an intelligent conversation with anyone. Oh yeah - the desk that I was assigned to was so filthy dirty that i left the office, went to the store and bought disinfecting cleaning materials and had to sanitize the chair, desk, keyboard, computer, phone, everything upon return. Absolute filth. And I am not a clean freak. The utter refusal of management to provide me with any resources, manuals or other training had me looking for a new job within three days. The caseload of the desk I took over was so crazy out of control that there was no way I was going to get it under control. Ever. Especially with such a lack of support from management. To put it into perspective, the company accepted a contract in Canada. The day they went active in Canada, they hit a big snag in that the doctors in Canada expected to be paid in Canadian dollars, not US dollars. They were surprised to learn of that, had not thought of that, and did not know what to do. I handed in my notice about 6 weeks into the job. Even though I know I was doing a crappy job, mostly due to the dysfunctional technology and no training, they begged me to stay, acknowledging how poorly run the claims department was. Sorry but it was way too broke for me to fix.

    Advice to Management

    Technology is the way to go with handling large quantities of information in a fast and efficient manner. Invest in better, more user friendly software so your employees can do their jobs.

    Pros

    Free Tea + Coffee in the breakroom. Nice, clean office. No micromanaging.

    Cons

    If your manager/supervisor doesn't like you, they will use every little thing against you during annual reviews. Not a good team environment. Employees aren't allowed to talk, but supervisors/managers can talk about non work related issues all day. Will find every excuse under the sun to not give you a fair raise even though the company profits millions every other month. Only paid on the 15th and last day of the month. Barely get any holidays off. Not even mind enough to let employees off early on Christmas Eve. Cares about customers (money) more than employees safety when it comes to inclement weather! Charlotte Office: The two different departments seem like two totally separate companies. No interaction. Benefits SUCK. You have to wait SIX MONTHS before you're allowed to use any PTO. SIX MONTHS!!!

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees more by providing a supportive team environment. If you're employees are happy, they're more likely to give 200%. Please get rid of those expensive insurance packages. Pay needs to be every two weeks. Give bonuses and better raises because your employees are who make your six figure checks!

    Pros

    Good work schedule, nice and safe building to work at. Nice work stations.

    Cons

    Poor management, rude and disrespectful coworkers. A bunch of old and unhappy woman who like to spend there time gossiping through their IM during work hours.

    Advice to Management

    Hire better management people who don't just employ there friends and family. Managers and supervisors play huge ball of favortism which creates a unfair team moral.

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

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