    Pros

    There are talented people that work at this company. If you find them, work with them and learn from them then your time is well spent. This is a company that values driven people who do not wait around for someone to tell them to do something. If you are not comfortable speaking up and are not persistent with your ideas then you will probably not move up in the company. The environment can be competitive but at the same time your team feels like family. There has been a lot of turnover at the company over the last year but the employees that are still there are invested in making the company better.

    Cons

    Management is oblivious to how the company is actually running. It is up to lower level employees to put together a strategy and keep this company from sinking. Not really sure what Management is doing or thinking. Their decisions rarely make sense and they are always contradicting themselves. The business and IT organizations are in two completely different galaxies and it makes getting anything done extremely difficult.

    Advice to Management

    1. Get yourselves on the same page
    2. Make good decisions. There were far too many times I saw VPs making a decision to cover their butt instead of owning up and finding a solution to the problem.
    3. Clearly communicate with your employees. There are talented people at this company and those that continue to stay aren't staying because they don't have other job offers. If Management doesn't get it together I'm sure it won't be long before the talented people give up on them and move on to a company that listens and can get itself together.

    Pros

    The Employees such as your team members and team leads also department leads. Love our clients also

    Cons

    System issues are the only thing consistent, bonus structure is based on Tiers Ex,) If you bring in over $100000 you potentially will only receive less than $2000 in commission. Top down company and needs to increase base pay.

    Advice to Management

    Please work not just for your clients but your employees they feel unappreciated and that's very consistent.

    Pros

    The employees are friendly and helpful. The positions are interesting. It was great to have the ability to work from home or the office.

    Cons

    The employees were stressed with the increased work load and managed with fear of losing their jobs. The on the job training was very weak and work performance was expected to be perfect. With personnel cutbacks there were increased errors by all staff members in the chain of review documentation.

    Advice to Management

    They need to place the importance on training and use a double check method to decrease errors in production of appeals.

    Pros

    my coworkers, feel proud of all I contributed, learned a lot about the business

    Cons

    management does not communicate or value its employees. Requests for information or suggestions for improvements meet with either no response at all (most often), degrading responses or patronizing responses. This occurring while the corporate all hands meetings are emphasizing "transparency" and "getting out of our silos". If it is not in the best interests of those in power, your ideas will not be considered or acknowledged, no matter how much you bring or how hard you work. I enjoyed all I learned and feel that I contributed a lot but left feeling like it didn't matter at all.
