    I worked at Carewise Health full-time

    Pros

    I loved working at Carewise Health. This is really one of the few companies that as a IT person you are able to work on a wide variety of technologies without getting locked into a very specific nitch. I have been able to work on several different projects and have really been left to own the solution. This might not be for everyone.. but for those that like a challenge it is very empowering.

    Cons

    The benefits could be stronger, however they are much better than my current employers. The HRA money the company fronted went a long way.

    Pros

    The pay was good, benefits are okay.

    Cons

    Being on call was never fun. End users complained and made you look bad. Too many whiners who don't follow company policy. I liked working there until I was over powered by the employees I supported. To many chiefs and not enough indians. Moral in the office was down and the environment was depressing. Co workers weren't team players, only back stabbers. The chief operations officer is a snobby witch, rude, and needs to learn some manners.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better and do something to boost moral. Managers get away with murder because of the high level position. They do what ever they want and have no ethics.

    Pros

    Front line managers supportive (though not much they can actually do to make change). Telecommuting a possibility for many positions.

    Cons

    Benefits horrible. Upper management disconnected from reality. No cost of living increase in years despite solid financials. Employees are 'lucky to have a job'.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees. At very least acknowledge that they contribute to your success. Add/ enhance the benefits package.

    I worked at Carewise Health full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They don't forget to pay you. Generally you can "get away" with slacking. But this isn't really a pro for employees who care.

    Cons

    Every reincarnation of leadership in the past 4 years does the same thing. They promise change, then neglect raises, add work, bring in outside leaders, let go internal vetrans. No long term advancement. The corporate culture is ruled by fear from the top down. It's about being friends with the big bosses not taking care of the client. Ultimately this place is just a tocic spiral.

    Advice to Management

    If you really want to see success, get rid of your dead weight in leadership. Who is left to blame?

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

    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 Management

    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 Management

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