I have been working at American Specialty Health full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Decent pay, good healthcare benefits, $100 quarterly bonus if your track steps. The people here are nice and easy to get along with. Despite company being in the hole of Sorento Valley, the building has newly remodeling interior and has a relaxing waterfall outside.

Cons

PC only, no Macs. You don't feel like you are working towards a BIG goal. Everyone is comfortable here, and complacent, which means no innovation. The CEO quotes Steve Jobs a lot during his presentations, and seems to be happy with Obamacare and the growth it provided for his company, BUT he is very conservative (won't let the company go public, no radical marketing campaigns or logo redesign, etc)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Growth is hard here...many employees have worked their 10 years or more. They have no intention of leaving anytime soon. You just have to wait it out until they retire. The company NEEDS a progressie company motto.
