    Pros

    Work life balance is aligned. I enjoyed working with my direct report although she was in another state. Nice helpful co workers. I always got a fair raise and a decent bonus. Benefits are good too, I started with 3 weeks of vacation!

    Cons

    Useless meetings that take place weekly. As a trainer, I didn't feel I received the best training. There were no Train the trainer sessions, it was always read the material and ask questions. It did make me work harder as I wanted to give my participants the most comprehensive training I could.

    Pros

    Office setting
    Good benefits
    Quarterly bonuses

    Cons

    Repetitive work
    Salary isn't the greatest
    Management isn't good
    Irregular hours
    Mandatory overtime with hardly any notice

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management isn't trained to do the work we do. There isn't room for much advancement and they only give you a few days notice to do mandatory overtime.

    I worked at Coventry Health Care full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    You get a paycheck, a desk, a computer, outdated furniture, free ice, a break room, and nice bathrooms. If you need ergonomic support, it will take an act of congress to get it. Some of the people are nice to your face, but they will talk about you behind your back.

    Cons

    Do not even think of working here, just run away!!! A lot of workplace harassment; some people may be nice to your face, but will talk about you behind your back. No recognition for hard work, they only care about numbers. Bonuses are only for those that get 200% on their productivity. Don't complain about anything, you will be targeted for the rest of your stay at the company. High deductible health insurance, it will bleed you dry of money. The pay is horrible. PTO is horrible, accumulation is based on the number of years you've been with the company. Management is a joke, they don't want to be there, and they just want you to shut up and get your work done. Management has their favorites, they will only help the "favorites" to advance their career. No career advancement is possible unless you are a "favorite" with management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should all be required to do the same work as your direct employees, and earn the same pay and respect that they currently receive. The best way to fix all the horrible problems is to fire all the executives and management. They are so set in their ways, nothing good will ever come for them.

    Pros

    Good benefits, some of the coworkers were extremely nice, great location in the heart of Old Town.

    Cons

    I worked in HR and got insight on many different units and all had the same complaints, the #1 complaint being micromanagement. I will gladly say the same for my boss. She was the worst boss I had ever worked for- completely unprofessional and unhappy, which seemed to be a pattern within this company. There were very few opportunities for advancement and the initial interview process is extremely tedious and unnecessary. These are not only complaints from within Human Resources but complaints I had heard throughout the company- in the Scottsdale office and beyond. If you are thinking of accepting employment solely for the benefits, think again. The six week grueling interview process is only the beginning. I

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All processed are WAY over-managed. Let people do their jobs and you might actually see some retention. Worst company I have EVER worked for.
