    Rapid growth is having s direct impact on patient care. I cam be difficult to meet the days demands and provide an our clients with the best customer service.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In my time here I have seen on numerous occasions how office politics become the only factor used as a tool to delegate responsibility and gain advancement within the organization.

    I worked at AmeriHealth Caritas

    Pros

    Fun. Helping others understand Medicaid. Great mission statement.

    Cons

    Cannot make mistakes. Poor training by team leads. Sneaky leads. Team leads never own up to their mistakes. They are the first ones to throw their teams under the bus to make themselves look perfect. If their team members made a mistake, how would that person know if they were never taught certain things. There are always 2 sides to a story. Glad I am out of there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Watch closely who your leads are. They only tell you what you want to hear.

    I worked at AmeriHealth Caritas full-time

    Pros

    Great health benefits, tuition reimbursement after 3 months of employment, and competitive salary

    Cons

    Everything is chaotic and unorganized. Management does not care to dump work on you. There is no personal development or goals but expect to bring a lot to the table. Everyone smiles in your face and gossips behind your back even upper management. There is a new CEO and the VP of HR left just like many others. Clear red flag. The turn over rate is very high. There are people who can delegate but have no idea what their subordinates are doing so they pretend to know what you are doing. The communication is so poor you wont know about something important until its 5 minutes before announcement to the entire company. They try to sale you the pros of the company during the interview and do a great job but the only thing going for this company is benefits and a competitive salary. But if you want to be over worked and miserable with gossiping employees and mangers who choose favorites. Apply! Some of the employees are nice and professional while many others are ghetto. The systems are stone age and there are always constant issues. Some departments have the ability to work from home like customer service reps but otherwise you must be in management or have a nice manager to work from home. Its a shame but the company has good values when you look at it in black and white but in reality I am not sure where the direction of HR is going which is the backbone of the company. People are leaving left and right.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look for ways to engage employees
    Provide professional development
    Provide goals
    Communicate!
    Promote within
    Update technology
    Reduce turn over rate
    Ask employees for feedback
    Offer flexible work arrangements for all level employees
    Create new roles for advancement such as senior level or supervisory roles

    I worked at AmeriHealth Caritas full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Made quite a few friends.....

    Cons

    This company was good when I first started working there. As the years went on, things got worst. It got to a point where the manager that I worked for did NOT know their job at all. Took credit for other peoples work and never took the time to find out what others on the team was working on. Never responded to emails and phone calls, but got nasty with people when they didn't respond to theirs. The CONS list is endless. Promoting people that didn't deserve it over people who did. VERY poor management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Evaluate all your managers/supervisors. You'll thorn find out who needs to be demoted from that position. There are people who don't need to managing anybody if they can't do their on job. This company was good when it was AmeriHealth/Keystone Mercy.

    I have been working at AmeriHealth Caritas full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    decent benefits, will pay for some continuing education after one year, health benefits OK, 401K is good.

    Cons

    Terrible inexperienced managers. My manager was promoted to a supervisory opinion without any experience managing people whatsoever. She is learning from an equally incompetent, arrogant manager, with little management experience, who lives in another state!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the terrible managers, hire competent people who don't just fall into their opportunities. Have managers on-site, not from states hundreds of miles away.

    I worked at AmeriHealth Caritas as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Coworkers are friendly and helpful. Call center work environment is pleasant and well spaced. All employees are good hearted, well natured, and care about the job and the person on the other end of the line.

    Cons

    Management is quick to send a nasty email but never responds to your important issues or questions regarding the job/task at hand...also hard to track down if there is an issue/problem.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more available to your employees. Invest more into training so the calls go smoothly on both ends.

    Former Employee - Intern in Phila, PA

    I worked at AmeriHealth Caritas as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Professional development
    Corporate business atmosphere
    Ability to network
    Many opportunities available to recent grads
    Opportunity to advance in the company
    Several different internship positions available in a variety of departments

    Cons

    Sometimes there was not a lot of work to do. Your experience depends on your manager and their role. Some interns would be swamped with work while others sat at their desk and read all day. The experience is what you make of it.
