Monotonous, boring and limited in growth.

Pros

- a good place to fine-tune counseling skills & work with a variety of patients.
- great coworkers
- can work from home

Cons

- supervisors micro-manage like I have never seen before
- profit-driven, which can often hinder the quality of care
- lack of respect from supervisors/managers - would rather have greater employee turnover than invest in their current employees
- downtime - actually made me feel like I was wasting my life at the company/doubt career, which has never happened at another position

Advice to Management

Trust in your employees more to provide quality care without having to nit-pick calls to death just to find a way to deduct a point on call reviews

    Pros

    The work is very interesting. In general, the people are great to work with. The company provides opportunities for socializing so that people from different departments are able to meet.

    Cons

    The lack of focus. With such a large, widespread company, priorities need to be set, progress measured, and decisions made.
