    I worked at Emdeon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The best reasons are the supervisors were so helpful and did want they needed to interact to get the job done. The work place has a work-friendly atmosphere. The managers were always available. The company is a great company to work for.

    Cons

    The only od to leave because my husband became disbaledne con I see is as an employee i on occasion had to put in extra hours on a case or two, it only depended on the case being worked on.

    Advice to Management

    Kepp doing what you are doing because it works. My manager and assistant manager could not had been as fair and competent as they were. I'm sure they still are. Their names are Misty Huldeson and Louis Mota in Daytona Beach. I was a Healthcare Rep and loved it. I needed to leave at the time because my husband became disabled and needed my care. i would give anything to come back and reprise my role there.

    I worked at Emdeon full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Friendly people. Good work environment. Benefits average to above average for the area. My career advanced quite a bit during the 15 years I was there.

    Cons

    Morale was very low for a while when Emdeon outsourced much of its IT to Cognizant. But it did get better after that. The company seemed to reorganize about every 1.5 to 2 years. I suppose in the end, some of the reorganizations were helpful. Emdeon was a conglomeration of a lot of different companies that had originally be bought when the company was part of WebMD. A lot of the reorganizations were part of the slow process to get everyone on the same page instead of operating as seperate companies.

    Disappointing experience there

    Pros

    The pay is good, and there are friendly people who seem to enjoy themselves there.

    Cons

    Despite my initial excitement about working there, it went downhill. Training was non existent, and I too got the eye roll and rude response when I asked questions. That seems to be a consistent complaint.

    I have been working at Emdeon full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits with paid time off (vacation and sick time) from day one. Emdeon corporate culture promotes, recognizes and rewards hard work.

    Cons

    Because my division (Chamberlin Edmonds) provides services as a 3rd party vendor job security depends on whether or not contracts are renewed. Few opportunities for growth outside Emdeon's Tennessee and Chamberlin Edmonds Atlanta headquarters.

    Advice to Management

    There are 2 different corporate cultures at Chamberlin Edmonds and its parent company Emdeon. Emdeon is much more positive in recognizing and rewarding hard work and achievements (sometimes multiple times per week) whereas Chamberlin Edmonds almost never recognizes successful employees but is quick to focus on negative outcomes.

    I worked at Emdeon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Health insurance. Free coffee and tea. Great co-workers. Company was expanding. Community service was an option. Decent work/life balance most of the time.

    Cons

    No room for advancement. Promotion of friends. Many members of management have no education. Frequent layoffs. Low pay. Low bonuses. Low raises. Small cubicles with low walls.

    Advice to Management

    Why layoff, but then hire more people? Also, I wish you valued college education more. How can someone be a director and not have a college degree?

    I worked at Emdeon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Solid compensation and benefits -Lots of nice people in corporate and in the field who truly care about their work -Emdeon has tremendous presence in the market/industry, but they have major issues with product launch/implementation and support. No clear strategy for growth in their market.

    Cons

    Emdeon has poor product launch support and terrible service. The overall strategy is lacking, or it's not being communicated through the rank and file. The sales force is extremely tenured, but this creates many who are overpaid, resistant to change and work the system/underperform. Blackstone runs the show, and I would be very careful about aligning my career here. They swept the entire executive leadership team after sales performed well over plan for the year. Many extremely talented people have been scape-goated and are now excelling elsewhere. There is tremendous negativity and paranoia throughout... rightly so. Promotions are random, performance management is poor, development is non-existent.

    Advice to Management

    Results through fear and intimidation drive short term results. Remove the dead wood, inspect and double inspect sales activities. Treat people with dignity.
