Pros

IT management lets you do your job without micro-managing your time. They provide good benefits and are flexible with schedules and work from home options.

Cons

The nature of the business (non-profit) lends itself to a roller coaster ride on the balance sheets. This seems to equate to a reluctance to give decent raises and promotions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Put a bit more focus on employee careers. There was little if any discussion of career advancement, mentoring, or training opportunities.

    Pros

    Hard working, dedicated people who care about the members they serve.

    Cons

    Outsourcing of the IT department and many of the work previously handled in-house has made the company vulnerable. The business used to be able to move very nimbly. It could resolve issues, launch new lines of business, and turn around new processes very quickly. The reason for this was often due to the subject matter experts they had on-hand. Now that they have lost much of this knowledge base, everything will take exponentially longer. This will result in increased risk, failure to meet go-live dates, frequent misses of due dates and poorer data quality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not try to move so fast now - you won't be able to expand as quickly or take on as many large projects as you used to be able to in the past. Change your expectations to match your current resources.

    I worked at Colorado Access full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The benefits were good, the pay was competitive and most departments had a good work life balance. The mission to server the underserved showed in most employees. They are trying to change the culture.

    Cons

    It was as if the company was stuck in the 1980s with the "this is the way we have always done it" mentality. Many of the tools and processes given the employees were outdated, not properly implemented or maintained. Colorado Access seemed to have a high turnover. New employees would come onboard be excited for about 10 months or so and start looking for work elsewhere. There was an effort to stay compliant with HIPAA for the entry level employees but it was not consistent and ignored by some upper management. It seemed one proper audit from a large fine.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn about best practices, implement them or just close up shop, a behavioral health company that won't change it's own behavior isn't healthy
