    Poor management choices - good product

    Personal Advocate- Senior (Former Employee) Pittsburgh, PA

    ProsSteady shift Hours, base pay, friendly co-workers.

    ConsPerformance reviews were idiotic, horrible choices made for mid level managers.
    Zero room for growth among entry level jobs.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management needs to stop running customer service department in cookie cutter process. Mid level managers should not get a bonus for slashing work force. Hiring mid level managers who have zero experience with management of people is a joke. Training for actual job was sub-par.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    location location location

    Claims Manager (Current Employee) Pittsburgh, PA

    ProsSolid company, no need to worry about job layoff or anything like that, flexible hours and great vacation policy.

    ConsThe office location is horrible, people are leaving so fast they definately need the revolving door in front of the building. Unless you live in the vicinity of the airport, expect a nightmare of a commute...even coming from the North Hills can take over an hour, and if you are from the east of the city..an hour and a half to two hours to get to work. Think long and hard if you can tolerate that before taking the job.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Business of Caring in action

    Director IT (Former Employee) Philadelphia, PA

    ProsStrong culture or caring for patients & each other, good compensation & benefits package, opportunities to learn & grow. People who want to do more & step up are generally celebrated & allowed to show what they can do.

    ConsSoft strategic planning. Business direction often personality driven vs plan driven. Pockets of "indispensable" employees who harbor knowledge and don't readily share, creating risk for single points of failure.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay attention to those who use information as a political lever. Some withhold important details from subordinates, making it difficult for them to be effective leaders.

    Hectic and unrealistic expectations upon first joining the company, but opportunities are everywhere if you are patient.

    Applications Development Manager (Current Employee) Austin, TX

    ProsDefinite opportunities for the motivated, people savvy individual. Very fair to good compensation. Remote to full work at home privileges are really common. Overall, the company has a core of extremely talented experts.

    ConsWork life balance is touted as important but not always a true priority. Very corporate with low to mid performers not lasting very long. Still growing into a mature model in many ways.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBetter direction from a vision or high-level goal viewpoint.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
