    Pros

    Company is growing and expanding across country. Very innovative and progressive.

    Cons

    Has become too corporate and has lost sight of valuing integrity in lieu of the bottom line.

    Advice to Management

    Pay closer attention to employee's concerns and actually listen.

    Pros

    Awesome corporate vision, culture and Direction. Benefits are better than competitors including health, PTO which is non-accrued, bonuses and others...

    Cons

    The position I took does not compliment my strongest skill sets and responsibilities were not adequately communicated during the interview. I will most likely need to leave in hopes of re entering in another role. If you are not housed in the main building there is no place to go to take needed breaks or make personal phone calls. This is not do bad in the warmer months but the winter is brutal and you feel trapped with no outlet..

    Advice to Management

    Include more detail about how the organization is structured during orientation. All humans need down time during long work days. All buildings should have at least a break room so that associates can regroup.

    Pros

    Not extremely stressful good opportunity

    Cons

    Some talentless mangers needs to feel they know it all.
    hr dept. Is not in your favor, don't bother going to then if you have any issue.
    Be strong in your salary negotiations coming in because once in its very hard to get a increase on top of your range.

    Advice to Management

    Put your ego aside and manage.

    Pros

    Great benefits, competitive pay, admirable corporate mission. Management is typically fair and understanding of personal lives and commitments.

    Cons

    A lot of corporate changes with minimal communication. Corporate secrecy is to be expected, but a little communication can go a long way.

    Pros

    Being able to work from home, bonuses and other incentives.

    Cons

    Poor Management, Lack of employees, No room for growth, Talking down to employees, Constanly changing processes and deadlines

    Advice to Management

    Please be more considerate to your employees and do not talk down to them. Also stop holding employees back from career advancements. Be fair and treat all employees equally and stop giving special treatment to certain employees. Lastly stop over working the employees and hire more employees to avoid mandatory overtime/ having employees work on holidays that the company is closed.

    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 Management

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

    Pros

    Pay is decent. I do not have any other pros for this organization. Not even the location because depending on your schedule traffic in that area can be a beast.

    Cons

    Their definition of a flex schedule is that you pick a fixed schedule and stick to it. Also, they say you can telework but they actually make you telecommute. Lastly, they expect you to produce at a certain level of accuracy but do not give you the tools to do so and write you up if you cannot meet the requirement.

    Cons

    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 Management

    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.
