    Only care about the shareholders

    Claims Processor II (Former Employee) South Portland, ME

    ProsDecent pay and benefits, was able to work at home

    ConsAs the company got bigger they took away more & more. We were always told to do more with less. Less training, less support, etc. Reorganized and outsourced as much as possible as they could pay them less than 1/2 of what they were paying us-all about the bottom line for the share holders. Say they are family oriented but definately are not.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop following the herd, step up and do the right thing for the associates as well as the memebers. Stop playing favorites.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
