    Pros

    There really isn't a PRO for this employer. It's just a job and not a very good one at that.

    Cons

    No employee recognition unless you are one of the Management's "pets"
    Passive/Aggressive Management behavior
    The ultimate "cover your butt" employer
    Cronyism at its finest - If you're a friend of a manager you are IN! I think I was the only employee in the office that was not hired because I was one of the manager's "friends". EVERYONE that works in the Sacramento office is a friend of a friend of a friend.

    Advice to Management

    Managers should be qualified - and not just in the "she does special favors for me" kind of aspect.

    Pros

    There are no pros to working at Examworks. Working there was like hell on earth. For overall rating I would have given a zero but I couldn't go any lower than one star.

    Cons

    Look up every negative word in the dictionary and that describes Examworks. The employee turnaround was unlike anything I have ever seen due to people constantly quitting because of management.

    Advice to Management

    Try acting like a compassionate human being and not like a lifeless uncaring little man with a napoleon complex who treats his employees like they are meaningless. Maybe your employee retention rate would be higher in Syosset if you took some classes on how to treat people properly.

    Pros

    There are no pros for the company. Would like to say "looking forward to work" but there are items to back this up.

    Cons

    How the company is currently being operated in real life is similar to the comic strip Dilbert. Even though it's a comic strip, it dose a pretty good job portraying the corporate culture as a Kafkaesque world of bureaucracy for its own sake and office politics that stand in the way of productivity, where employees' skills and efforts are not rewarded, and busy work is praised.

    The Organizational culture isn’t a good match and the working conditions are very poor and I am currently exploring other employment options. This is the worst job that I ever had and can "not" work under these current conditions. This is the first time that I had a position that I'm not truly happy at a job and be ready to bolt to something new. Now having the information and knowledge on how the company works, I would have passed on this opening. The company is being run like a tight ship and there is very little if any flexibility. I can see how are there are checks and balances in place, but still having some flexibility helps with the moral.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so "tight" and allow some flexibility. If you want to buy lunch for employees, getting pizza every time gets old real fast.

    Pros

    Some of the employees are great! There is so much you can learn there. The work is interesting you will never get bored.

    Cons

    The micromanaging is horrible. The managers and supervisors are verbally abusive and are be led by their personal life.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps if you didn't encourage your supervisors to harass certain employees you'll find a more productive atmosphere, you're clearly bias

    Pros

    Working from home is a plus! Oops you can't do that half the time.

    Cons

    Micro management, no rules are across the board for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Go scratch.

    Pros

    Not having to work holidays or weekends ... wait a moment ... you have to do that so that's not a Pro. Being able to work from home as was discussed during the interview ... wait another moment ... nope can't do that either because they just don't feel like it's in the company's best interest never mind that productivity and quality are better when workers are able to work from home. Only possible "pro" would be stock options that I was given that are no longer offered. However, the stock option only makes up for the low salaries provided. Sooo ... yeah can't come up with a pro.

    Cons

    I worked there for just over a year and a half and ended up in the hospital twice and had multiple doctor appointments for panic disorder only diagnosed AFTER starting to work there. The supervisor and management styles have been described as "psycho-terror." Don't even think about having to go to the bathroom too often. Don't talk to your co-workers in the bathroom or the lunch area because you're listened to there and what you say is relayed to management. All communication between management and workers have a punitive feel about them. Micro-managing is a common practice and the only way they know how to do things.

    Advice to Management

    Stop posting fake positive reviews to offset the multiple real reviews of the place. Let your employees talk to the higher-ups so they can get a real feel of what's going on and why the turn over is so high. When I left, most of the employees were looking for other work and ready to leave if another opportunity presented itself.

    Pros

    The only pro is that they buy the office a cheap buffet lunch once a month. 900 shares of stock options if you are lucky.
    Some nice coworkers.

    Cons

    Easily the worst place I have ever worked. This place should be avoided as it has the most arrogant, least trained management in the insurance industry.

    Advice to Management

    Each manager should be required to read "Management for Dummies" two times,

    Pros

    Great coworkers that pitched in when needed. Working remotely, when allowed, was nice. However, this was regularly taken away from the entire team for no apparent reason.
    Potential opportunity for growth.

    Cons

    Micromanagement from supervisor and upper management (particularly the GM). Communication was usually punitive in nature. "Secretive environment" regarding all changes in the work process.
    Many employees expressed concern that they would be fired if they were sick, had to schedule a doctor's appointment during the day, or requested too much vacation time.
    Turnover is very high.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house with much of the supervisory staff, especially the GM. Put a HR rep in all offices.
    This could be an amazing place to work if a positive work environment was provided; however, this will never happen with the current management.

    Pros

    It's a job with no benefits

    Cons

    Lack of communication
    Reviews performed on the last day, and no hard copies to view-supervisor "doesn't believe in numbers", said I was doing a "GREAT" job, and most of numbers were 4s and high 3s-this is with no complaints
    no answer regarding raises, except maybe 2% at most for those even receiving raises, but no time frame
    Concerns to local management are not addressed

    Advice to Management

    The discussion of communication, or lack thereof, is like beating a dead horse-management seems concerned every time the topic is brought up, and yet, no improvement. Employees are important for one reason only! Numbers!-nothing else matters
    Jobs are scarce, so we are caught between a rock and a hard place

    Pros

    Consistant work, good outlook for future employees.

    Cons

    it seems management has been trained to treat their employees like children. Going to the bathroom is frowned on, and trying to make a doctors appointment is terms for a write up. Management makes mistakes on a daily basis , and then blames employees to cover there own mistakes. These people should not be allowed to walk the face of the earth. They are not human! Micro management is practiced consistently, and the employees go through hell every day. It blows me away that this company exists, and that they get away with the sad treatment of there employees.

    Advice to Management

    Take some( How to be a human being lessons!) They would have much happier employees who would not feel such hatred towards there bosses.
