    Great culture

    Pros

    The company is very focused on culture and having a positive impact on people's lives.

    Cons

    Sometimes the attention put on growing and changing the world is overwhelming. Some days are like work to just be work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing whT your doing. But remember even good things need moderation.

    I have been working at AmeriBen full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's a place to work. There are some good people there.

    Cons

    It is very fake, it seems that all company meetings are encompassed with with messages of sadness in an attempt to motivate the masses (literally every meeting and company event). All these messages are similar to what you would hear if you went to a particular church( without mentioning it) Management all but forces you to join committees and donate to charities and do work in the community. This is very hard for most to do when the pay is so low you can barely pay your own bills. Benefits are beyond terrible and unaffordable if you have a family. Don't expect to promote unless you are an attractive individual for clients to look at. Lots of shady activity in management. If you excel at your job don't expect to promote because they don't want to lose you in that position. More backstabbing than an episode of the Sopranos.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Accept feedback from low level employees! Mid management is deceitful and destroy people mentally. Stop turning a blind eye and pretending this is a utopia.

    Pros

    A paycheck. I am actively looking for employment, I need to escape - this place is a prison - and that's the Pros.

    Cons

    Bullying culture.
    Terrible benefits.
    Too much 'god' in the work place.
    Need to sign waiver to attend christmas party stating you or your guest will not embarass the company if you or your guest drink alcohol. In order to get thru this party you have to drink - the party is a Mormon sermon.
    If you want to be supressed and not allowed to think on your own - this company could be for you.
    If you have a brain in your head and want to use it - avoid this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop walking around with fake smiles on your face - it's sickening.

    I worked at AmeriBen full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    There are some nice employees.

    Cons

    This company is a Mormon organization which embraces a culture of bullying from the top down (done with a big smile on their faces).
    Employees are required to attend mandatory meetings whereby they are then subjected to subliminal messaging and brainwashing in order for 'management' to control and indoctrinate their workforce. God comes into these mandatory meetings, which is pretty much illegal in 21st century USA.
    Being grateful is another thing 'management' expect of their staff. Yes, we should all be grateful for the 3 days vacation they so kindly give us each year. For the non payment of holiday pay for the first 90 days of employment. For the continuous mention of 'CULTure' whereby there is none.

    The CULTure is Mormon values.

    You have 5 choices within this company:
    1. You are LDS
    2. You are willing or bullied into converting to LDS
    3. You go to work, you close your eyes (for whatever reasons you may have)
    4. You get fired for not embracing the CULTure
    5. You leave!

    Doing a good job is secondary to embracing the LDS CULTure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    How about being honest about what this company really is.

    I'm sure some of your clients might be interested!

    Listen to complaints and issues regarding mid-level management.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at AmeriBen

    Pros

    Good ideals, the core purpose and core values are more than just words on the wall, but not everyone that works there truly lives up to those words.

    Cons

    High performance expectation with low pay and mediocre healthcare benefits, which is ironic since the company deals with insurance plans.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the complaints and issues that have been brought forth about the mid-level management. There are at least 3 department supervisors that have had several complaints and concerns taken to HR and higher management by many people, but due to their tenure they are kept on. You've got the wrong people on the bus and they are bullies who are making you lose really good people.

    Pros

    Monthly potlucks and birthday celebrations. Work-life balance is great. Monthly recognition for advancement and achievements. Free breakfast once in a while. This is a great company to work for if you are on retirement and need a little extra money and health insurance.

    Cons

    No incentives. The company encourages engagement and participation in company activities like picnics and going camping, but want you pay for picnic activities and T-shirts. They lack appreciation for their front line employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to balance business with employee satisfaction. Show your employees that you care and appreciate them by giving incentives on their health care benefits, pay increase, bonuses, etc. Saving money is essential to any organization but it should not be done at the expense of your valuable employees.

    Pros

    Some positions have a flex schedule and telecommuting

    Cons

    Since Andy has stepped back, the core values have been lost

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    go back to your cores, they are what made you the success that you are now, and it is all going to be lost. You no longer care about your employees

    Pros

    Upper management genuinely cares about the employees and the culture and work environment. I've never seen anything like it. We have monthly lunches where feedback is sent to the top. The environment is family friendly, and the culture is very positive. The company cares a lot about helping and educating the employees in their jobs and other responsibilities, too. There are a number of fun committees, a companywide campout, lots of potluck dinners, a company picnic, tuition reimbursement, and many more fantastic opportunities. The benefits are good and the work/life balance is great. I really enjoy it here.

    Cons

    Sometimes there can be drama between employees. We are growing fast, so we have to move around a bit with seats. Sometimes there can be a lot of travel involved, depending on your role.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Andy is fantastic and is leading this company in an incredible direction. He cares about the culture, he cares about our core values. AmeriBen is going to become a major player in the benefits administration field in the next decade and it will be fun to be a part of a winning team.

    Pros

    Decent working conditions and benefits
    generally low stress
    Upper management has a strong desire to create a positive working environment

    Cons

    Middle management has a strong desire to please upper management so tells upper management only what upper management wants to hear.
    HR believes that the truth is only required when it effects them.
    HR doesn't investigate complaints only justifies the failure of employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Andy has a brillant concept of what the company should be like. He trusts his mid-management without proof and so will believe everything they say to him. He needs to review the old adage, trust but verify.
