    Pros

    Good insurance and good benefits with some of the plans-fair premiums compared to most plans outside of the company. Some are allowed to telecommute if you meet your goals.

    Cons

    No chance for advancement if you are not friends with certain people. People that have no experience are hired and paid wages higher than those that are experienced. Work-life balance is advertised a a perk and that you would be allowed to work alternate work schedules, but again it is based on who you know; if you are allowed to do this. People of color do not advance well in the case management section. You can apply and apply from within and never get an interview.

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing favorites and stop all of the bickering and back-biting. Listen to your staff they are the one doing the job.
