    Pros

    Local management is incredibly caring and supportive. They are patient with employees who at least show a positive attitude towards clients. Starting pay is very competitive for the position. Employees who show willingness to consistently perform are rewarded with respect and responsibilities. Surprisingly transparent management in regards to upper level corporate decisions.

    Cons

    Benefits overall are only slightly above average. For a health care company a bit better contribution towards healthcare cost would be nice, but solid starting pay and HSA contributions are good. Annual merit raises are WELL below average but that could change with new corporate parent company, speaking of which, they seem to be bought and sold more frequently than average/

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great job treating all employees as important and worthy of being known about all upper level decisions as much as possible. Hopefully you can push for better merit raises for those who earn them under new ownership.

    Pros

    May 29th review is an obvious entry from management. Good luck with that.

    Cons

    Competence is not valued as much as blind obedience with a big smile and donuts.

    Pros

    remote work, travel, self-driven, supervisor's easily accessible via phone and email. Opportunities to grow clinically and professionally, opportunity to have an impact on behavioral healthcare in Georgia.

    Cons

    sometimes have to work after hours to assure reports are completed timely. Frequent changes in guidelines lead to frequent changes in how audits progress. Occasionally managing conflicts with providers regarding differences in interpretations of the guidelines.

    Advice to Management

    I wish we had won the re-bid contract. This has been the best job I ever had and was hoping to work here much longer.

    Pros

    None, none, none, and none.

    Cons

    Very clique-ish. Lack of vision. Lack of forethought and planning. Very reactionary versus being proactive. Management staff was unqualified to hold their positions and/or lead their departments, but maintained their positions through personal relationships. Forward-thinkers were shunned and pushed aside to protect the egos and positions of non-qualified management staff. Very lazy approach to management. Obsessed with maintaining the status quo and conducting "business as usual" with no innovation. I could go on, but there isn't enough time.

    Advice to Management

    They should devote more time and attention to the current happenings in the market and what their competitors are doing versus hiding the shortcomings of and padding and protecting the egos of current management. They should require more insight and vision from those they appoint to management positions and recognize the contributions of ALL team members.

    Pros

    The job itself was not difficult. If you have good on-site managers, it's tolerable.

    Cons

    They contracted with Medicaid to provide health coaches. They couldn't care less about the patients. Their focus was completely on numbers and dollar signs. There was little to no upper mgmt support. The pay was not very competitive.

    Advice to Management

    Upper mgmt needs to have more of a presence to show support. You need to motivate your employees and work on boosting morale.

    Pros

    I liked the benefits but not the pay

    Cons

    Terrible management, no communication from senior leadership, very poor working environment (cubicles with no sound insulation for telephonic) only non-telephonic management have private offices with sound insulation. Very poor time-off accrual.

    Advice to Management

    Push for more clear communication for IT. naon quality of care provided for case managers, not quantity. Allow staff work from home for inclement weather. Seek input from staff to avoid burnout.
