    Pros

    Opportunity for advancement for those who are qualified and put the time and effort in. Holiday schedule is solid and adaptability of the company make it a constantly evolving environment and work cycle, which keeps the work interesting.

    Cons

    There are few boundaries or limits to the amount of work that may be asked of you. If you thrive in that type of environment, you'll do well; if not you'll go down fast. The ability to prioritize and be efficient are not only desirable but needed to get by in an environment that is constantly changing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sometimes the simplest solution is investing in system enhancement or development to make everyday job life easier. Throwing more people at a broken system is not always the answer. This organization is very siloed and there is an incredible amount of redundancy in processes but a lack of accountability when problems arise.

    We do well as a company recognizing new enhancements and areas of improvement, but we are often slow to enact change or don't contribute the resources to it to see it fully through.

    I worked at American Specialty Health full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decent Holiday schedule, nice campus

    Cons

    Departments don't communicate with each other, until an issue pops up. Management is extremely short sighted, setting unreachable goals and creating anxiety and a sense of failure in the staff. Staff is promoted (or not) often depending on their relationship with the manager.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house and introduce independent review of processes for all lines of business. Too many processes are set up by employees not formally trained and are severely lacking. Give managers better training in order to eliminate the rampant preferential treatment.
