    Former Employee - Clinical Care Manager in Columbia, MD

    I worked at APS Healthcare full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Ability to work from home during inclement weather; team leaders appreciate and acknowledge good work ;

    Cons

    Position entails being stuck behind a desk with little freedom to move about. Company is smaller than they indicated in the interview. Limited flexibility in change to work hours. Benefits were not great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider more flexibility in terms of hours worked and ability to work from home especially since it would be cost-effective for the company.

    I worked at APS Healthcare full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Peers, comradery, the ability to enhance the delivery of care across the state.

    Cons

    Management. In the clinical arena, those who are promoted are the least capable and, not surprisingly, least likely to make waves. Expect to be managed by incompetent, lazy individuals while the hard-working types consistently make management look good without any acknowledgment of their efforts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire and promote those who are doing the good work. Not those who will make you look good by not speaking the truth.

    I have been working at APS Healthcare full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    I put in 15 years of direct care prior to coming here and was burnt out. I have been here more than 5 years now and would not leave until my kids leave home. The work is boring and repetitive and not very challenging but the work life balance is excellent. Opportunities for remote work and you leave your work at work when the work day ends. My local co-workers are like an extended family. The corporate staff is no where to be seen unless you need them. Responses from HR are timely and helpful. Salary is competitive to the market and even slightly higher based on reports from ex-coworkers who have left to do similar work elsewhere.

    Cons

    Most positions are based on a contract with a state office or health plan and those contracts are re-bid periodically. Poor technology. Poor corporate IT support. Employee Helpdesk Level I is outsourced overseas and staff are not familiar with proprietary products. Little room for advancement because we all love our jobs and do not leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I love my local managers. I do not have to deal with corporate. Despite many changes in the corporate structure and corporate drama since I started, we rarely feel the effects at the local level because our managers do a good job as buffers.

    Pros

    great benefits and good compensation, like the online training modules and online compliance training, great time-off opportunities, office space and accommodations, some friendly co-workers

    Current Employee - Consumer Family Member, APS Health Care in Sacramento, CA

    I have been working at APS Healthcare part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    A good good opportunity to work collaboratively with APS team members in reviewing, interviewing, and compiling final reports with results of the review...the access, timeliness, folllow up, and recovery of the mental health consumers at the Mental Health agencies (those who work with Medi-Cal). The scheduling offers great flexibility so that I can work another part time job.

    Cons

    Sometimes the travel is a bit extensive to outlying areas, but we are allowed travel time to and from our sork site.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I am recently retired from 39 years of teaching and counseling in the San Diego Community College District. I have grown so much over the years in my career, and have been continually learning, working with students, co-workers,and using critical thinking and personal skills to be effective and humanistic, yet professional. I have worked for APS health care part time for the past 3 years, being part of team site reviews of mental health agencies during my break times from the college. Learning this new job has been very stimulating and most interesting, and yes, exciting. I am so pleased that at this point of my life that I have the ability to be trained and then work successfully in a completely different area that my educational background. Now that I am retired from my counseling job, I seek part time work that will give me the opportunity to use all of my above skills, plus learn new skills and utilitze them in a related or new field. I am very people oriented, so it is important that I also work with people in a collaborative manner. It is important that the company I work for has strong ethics and values, and is willing to be open minded about hiring a competent "senior". It is important to me to be able to work in an environment where I can contribute and be of excellent service to that company. Compensation is open, however, I would like to start at $20.00 an hour or better. Health benefits are not an issue, as I do have Medi Care lifetime benefits..

    I worked at APS Healthcare full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The job provided an opportunity to learn the Mental Health side of Health Insurance. Relaxed atmosphere and accomodating when time away from the office was requested.

    Cons

    Very few of the leadership team had business experience. Often times they had a Clinical background and made decisions based on that point of view. There was lack of structured training and no room for advancement or personal growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider investing in leadership who understands how 'Business' should be conducted. Provide opportunities for employees to grow and reach higher levels of success.

    Pros

    I worked with some really fine people here.

    Cons

    The atmosphere in the corporate office was tainted by cronyism and an archaic management style where bullying and intimidation were condoned. Overall a pretty unpleasant work environment. Now the lawsuit from UA suing those in the executive corner that were steering the ship. It's a sad end to what could have been something so much better if it had the right leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't think there are any people left in management ... they managed to manage themselves out of a job.
