    Pros

    Great people to work with. By working with a friendly and productive team a lot of days were more tolerable than others.

    Cons

    Board members lacked vision and rarely looked to for trending ways to increase profit but rather stay afloat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work with the young talent that you have to expand the business

    I worked at Carewise Health

    Pros

    Clueless colleagues meant they leave you alone to do your job if you know your stuff and deliver. flip side of that coin is it gets lonely quick if you're used to getting stuff done collaboratively, as a team.

    You must admire the enormous undertaking and risk that senior management is taking with their new analytics platform. Software director was supportive and had huge apetite and curiosity for cutting edge technology, which he knew how to spread out over the team. The work I personally accomplished in my 6 months tenure was extremely satisfying and personally rewarding. This was due in part to the director's support, and also to my own work ethic and apetite for exploration and self-improvement.

    No pressure from director - which is great if you are self driven and need none.

    Cons

    - Golden opportunity being wasted away by burnt out employees who seriously poison the work environment. Appears that culture is geared towards group loyalty above actual skills, so be prepared to feel like you're the new guy for a long time.
    - Naysayers will doubt you and stonewall you purely out of ignorance of best practices and out of fear of looking bad, yet company is trying to go the "big data" route and adopting cutting edge technologies using 90's development practices. Go figure.
    - Do not count on productive teamwork. You'll do just fine if you enjoy working solo.
    Horrible benefits. No career path, promotions, raises, bonuses, clarity, no sense of direction.
    - For technologists that have thick skin, you may be able to navigate this mess. I burnt out in 6 months. Horrible and confusing environment to get work done.
    - Offshore team is seriously unreliable and can't keep up with even the most basic task.
    - Some senior people alienate the rest of the team by constantly praising their own inner circle.
    - Developers are treated as simpleton workers and don't really participate in architecture discussions or have a place at the table. Be prepared to have a whole project just dumped on you with the whole thing expected to just be done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company culture and communication is non existent. No clear direction for the company. The fresh start that you are projecting onto everyone else seems to be more of the same. Eliminate the awful poisonous few.

    Pros

    Great product that I really believed in. Great people; we were well taken care of by management.

    Cons

    No challenges. New sales were slow and clients tended to move on when their contracts were up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have nothing to say here since the management has since changed.

    I worked at Carewise Health full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Sr. Management is nice and easy to talk to. Work life balance is great. Great for those who like to work on their own.

    Cons

    Pay is not competitive with the market.
    Communication is non-existent.
    While Sr. Management is nice, they are very disconnected with the employees.
    Company meetings are rare and when we have them there is no discussion, we just listen.
    Some of the Sr. Leadership manage out of fear so change is a four letter word. When you bring ideas they are rarely heard and the mentality of "this is how we have always done it" seems to be the norm. If they could open their eyes to best practices and recognize that their employees bring value, this company may be able to be turned around.
    Frequent layoffs, they seem to happen once every 4 to 6 months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees and get rid of the "this is how we have always done it" mentality.

    Pros

    Proficient co-workers are always willing to help. They not only answer questions; they help make sure that you understand the issue overall.

    Cons

    Management. They just don't care about the employees. If you work overtime, then it becomes expected and the norm. You can work till you drop dead and they don't care. Someone quits and you get to do their work plus your own. That position will not be refilled. They keep the bimbos and let the people who have their act together go in the many downsizings each year. I worked there almost 6 years and only got one 2% raise after 5 years. Just once. This was the same for all the other worker bees. Who knows what happened with management. Managers are also not good at managing people. Not sure why they get promoted from worker lower ranks, but never did see it work out well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop blowing smoke and practice what you preach. No one believes your lies. The latest company sale "was for the good of the company" but 75% of the employees were laid off. It would be nice to know what your definition of who you think the company actually is. We work. You get the money. We are the company. You are liars.

    Introduce yourselves to the "LOWER" people who are working hard to earn you MILLIONS, not just the people who report to you directly. Be PEOPLE-ORIENTED!

    Pros

    Experienced friendly employees and management. Ample PTO . Extensive and thorough training offered for new hires.

    External hiring and internal promoting of under qualified employees to certain management positions.

    Hire management that have Healthcare Administration background and base promotions not only on candidates experience and years employed but business professionalism and friendly attitude as well.
