    Former Employee - Accounting/Finance in Monterey Park, CA
    Former Employee - Accounting/Finance in Monterey Park, CA

    I worked at Care1st Health Plan full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Surrounded by hardworking "lower level" colleagues. Term used by upper management or "Superior"

    Cons

    Incredibly hostile environment in accounting department run by inadequate Director and a bipolar CFO who is "two-face" towards her staff. If you have a job and think the grass is greener on the other side, IT IS NOT here. The turnover is about 3-6 months and you either get fired or resign due to lack of training. Major micro-management, constant yelling and degrading staff, too much work and way understaff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace CFO and hire more staff.

    if you don't save money for this company you'll be reprimanded quickly and unprofessionally. Had to quit before a yr due to this.

    Pros

    Great people, great vibe. Management really cares about the employees and the insured. I love my boss and get 100% support.

    Not a lot of opportunities for advancement.
    Other than that, this is a great place to work and the pay is competitive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to be more hands off. Allow your employees room to learn from experience and their own success.

    Pros

    The benefits are good. They match up to 4% of your salary (before taxes) towards your 401K.

    Cons

    Because the company is expanding so quickly, there is a lack of capable hands to distribute the increased workload which adds a lot of stress to the work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more patient with your new hires and try not to project your frustrations onto them.

    Pros

    A company not solely focused on the bottom line, but on the quality of life of its members ... and its employees. I've never worked for a more humane and caring company.

    Cons

    Its a growing company and growth pains, as in all growing companies, make workloads high.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees..they have all the answers ...
