    The Absolute Worst Place to Work!

    Customer Service Representative (YSA) (Current Employee)
    Winston-Salem, NC

    ProsNot too much to say nice about this place. If I had to pick something positive to say about this company is that their systems are very up to date. But thats it....

    ConsI started working for this company through a temp agency in september. I currently work in the spending account dept. I was told that this was a temp to hire position. After working 6 months on a temp. basis, I am finally was brought on to Aon just to find out I had to make it though another 3 month trial period with Aon, no benefits and only a dollar pay raise. Management here is also horrible. They have an attitude everytime a CSR asks them for help. Senior management is almost invisable. I have only seen one member of senior management in the year that I have been here. As an employee you are nothing but a number. The only thing they care about is punching the clock. Thats it. We had a very bad winter this year in NC. To the point where it was impossible to make it to work. CSRs were penalized for not coming in even though management didnt have to. On top of that, this company is canstantly doing things to customer accounts without informing the customers and as a result the majority of the calls that come in are angry participants cursing us out. This place is literally a hell hole and am very fortunate to have been able to find other employment!

    Advice to Senior ManagementFire yourselfs and hire people more suited for the job!

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

    Discriminated against, Overworked, Underpaid and Undervalued- files team

    Programmer Analyst (Current Employee)
    Hunt Valley, MD

    ProsNone to report unless you are in the inner circle and "friends" with management. If work is your entire life and you are best friends with leaders they will promote you and give you more money.

    ConsLead Programmer Analysts discriminate by gender, age, race, and language spoken. They can be and are often disrespectful and mean. The place is a cocktail of pending lawsuits.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet help and treat your employees fairly.

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

    Chaos, and that puts it nicely.

    Case Manager (Current Employee)
    New Britain, CT

    ProsCorporate benefits package is excellent. Home Office seems to have a good reputation but satellite office in New Britain is a mess and has no corporate feel. Hiring salary was decent, they allowed for negotiation of rate of hire.

    ConsManagement makes no effort to retain quality employees. Employees are overworked without recognition even as minimal as positive praise and encouragement. No efforts made for career development although they love to sell how much the like to promote from within. No annual bonuses and minimal raises.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook around or you will lose all your top talent. Do something to organize the chaos, improve morale, and develop employees. 75% of the case managers I interact with daily are actively looking for new jobs.

    ProsLove working with the team, great people,

    Cons- low pay for what we do
    - no focus on work life balance
    -only get promotions based on who you know and who likes you
    - no direction or support from upper managment
    - surveys for employees dont ask the true questions so they are useless

    Advice to Senior Management- pay more attention to your team
    - leave the drama at home, this is a work environment
    - lead by example
    - be consistant

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Programmer Analyst

    Programmer Analyst (Current Employee)
    Hunt Valley, MD

    ProsGreat position to gain experience. Dive immediately into meaningful work helping others. Casual atmosphere while maintaining business vibe.

    ConsPay is lower based on experience, however the work that will be required of you does not justify the low pay. Very tedious work. Nothing is black and white-you'll find yourself running in circles trying to find an answer/document to move forward with a project.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere needs to be a more streamlined process to completing tasks. Increase the pay of your "entry-level" employees; the work required is massive. At least higher pay would be a caveat to justify such work. As an employee I have never been more stressed than in the position that I am in right now working for this company.
