    I worked at CorVel full-time for 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.

    Unrealistic sales goals, standard sales quota across the board despite varying demographics and populations, disconnected management, and brutal implementation teams.

    I have been working at CorVel full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Opportunity for training, and personal growth. Small teams, so you are cross trained and interact with many aspects of programs and different departments.

    Cons

    Terrible, almost non-existent benefits. No growth potential. Senior Management focuses on sales force, and favorites. Other departments are left to struggle understaffed and unrewarded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide clear career path opportunities. Recognize all employees contribute to your success, and reward them. It used to be a fun place to work, and great people are still there - realize this, and treat them with respect before they take their skills and experience elsewhere.

    Poor management with no people skills. Poor leadership and no communications to their employees and virtually no training provided.

    Hire experience employees with an education and not promote anyone just because they have been with the company for a long period of time.
