  1. I worked at AIM

    Pros

    AIM is a value added company with a real partnership with its client executive management. Owners and executives support AIM in its review of operations and training.

    Cons

    Small private firm. Current clients when I worked at AIM were concentrated with one major multiple location business owner locally with other single point clients across the US which impacted efficiency with travel time.

    Advice to Management

    Provide time and support with limited involvement to grow staff.


  2. Hostile work, hostile and mean vicious management - greedy parent company- Anthem.

    Pros

    Salary appears decent but expectations continue to rise permanently. Company appears to be growing but their is no internal promotion ever. Company is bent on more-for-less philosophy. This is a dangerous place to work, you will NEVER feel secure...period.

    Cons

    The work is a hostile experiment (ever changing so you never learn the job) as you are processing cases to deny benefits to contracted insurance company/ Medicare members based on constantly changing Guidelines. If doctors office personal complain about you, you will be attacked by management as though you actually did something to cause their anger. The pre-auth process causes their anger and they are licensed by their MD's to attacked you personally. This is the absurdity of the role and the company sells this to health plans like BCBS's abd now the government. The company Anthem/AIM uses all technologies to monitor and control you. They record every call, listen in in secret 7x per month then use their opinions to attack oppress you -relentlessly. You are also purposely socially isolated and monitored electronically every minute...to the extent you must log in/out to go to the bathroom. Not treated professionally at all and always pushed and punished for fabricated infractions. They get paid by health plans on a per call basis.

    Advice to Management

    GET REAL...people need to live and not be oppressed just because you are greedy and have no promotional ability...no upward mobility what-so-ever.

    Pros

    employees, environment, some teams leads, the doctors are great

    Cons

    team leads that don't know anything, managers being promoted because of who they know, no room for growth at all

    Advice to Management

    take the time to get to know your staff. you have lost plenty of people leave because of the favortism. i even had a manager tell me she would back a team lead over the staff, even though info i was giving by that lead was wrong and the manager stated i should have went with that incorrect information

    Pros

    Co-workers were professional, hardworking and dedicated. There was no time for any camaraderie during work hours and the time clock was ticking for all but managers and leads.

    Cons

    Stressful and a high turnover rate. Management out of touch with day to day concerns. Promotions not based on what you know but who you know. Good people with great talent passed up.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management should communicate with more than just middle management. Nothing filters up or down. Middle managers have their own social club.

    Pros

    well its good in the nice weather months because you work outside.....

    Cons

    ABSOLUTELY ZERO TRAINING PERIOD!
    they just throw you out there & don't care if you actually KNOW what you are doing- all they care about is NUMBERS.....
    UNTIL the stuff hits the fan and then they CAN YOU! Also - if you want benefits you better watch your email like a HAWK because THAT'S where they slide your enrollment forms in and don't tell you UNTIL of course its too late to sign up and so NOW you have to wait an ENTIRE YEAR for "open enrollment"

    Advice to Management

    you should have managers who ACTUALLY KNOW how to do the job they expect their employees to do! Pay your inspectors MORE and HANDLE THE HEALTH BENEFITS IN THE OFFICE WHERE THE EMPLOYEES WORK AND LIVE! (not a stealthy email sent from clear across the country at the "headquarters")

    Pros

    Their bonuses were stellar the last 2 years, and on track to be great in '12. This is partly due to Wellpoint's performance as well as AIM's
    There are some decent leaders within the IT organization -- currently languishing as middle management.

    Cons

    The most toxic environment I've ever had the displeasure to work within. The entire IT staff is always in fight or flight mode to avoid recrimination from others outside their team.
    There are so many silos -- essentially each team is a silo.
    Apparently, "Yes men" are treated well, and incompetence, even at director level, is often overlooked.

    Wellpoint has too much control on daily and strategic operation and is slowly downsizing the total compensation plan for employees. Benefits slowly eroded under it's ownership.

    Advice to Management

    You may not care about your company's culture, but ignore it at your peril. Because there is so little focus on career growth and encouraging leadership, a toxic environment is the de-facto culture.
