    Former Employee - Reimbursement Specialist in Columbia, MD

    I worked at Maxim Healthcare Services full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Company does hire entry level so this is good for those looking to gain experience within a particular field.
    I gained a lot of experience here and are genuinely thankful for that.
    Depending on whether you have a good manager and team members, as with most jobs, it can be a pleasurable working environment.
    The monetary bonuses are nice additions and good motivators.
    They give you about $60 a month toward your HSA account.
    At Corporate/Headquarters, there is free parking, coffee, filtered water, and refrigerator/microwave/toaster usage.
    The bathrooms are fairly clean most of the time. You get a desk, chair, phone, and a computer.
    If you are lucky and are a manager you will get that plus your own room.
    Most of the workers are separated by cubicles and there is not much privacy which, depending on what area of the building you are working in, is extremely distracting in terms of traffic.
    You can get 3-4 hours of weekly overtime.
    Checks are paid weekly.
    Flex time is available.

    Cons

    If you are lucky to keep your head above water you can "survive".
    You will be thrown into the mix and get "trained."
    After that, the world will be expected of you.
    The training is not streamlined.
    Different people have different ways of teaching things- whether they are wrong or right, efficient or inefficient.
    Because of this, new employees may or may not get trained correctly.
    The company makes you take a ton of compliance and ethics training each year because a couple years back they got into trouble when one of the branch offices had been submitting false claims.
    As part of the OIG agreement, the whole company must now suffer compliance and ethics training as well as new, lengthy and inefficient procedures to document Maxim's attempts to be a better company.
    The umbrella of "reimbursement specialist" allows any and every type of role to be thrown at you.
    You are a medical biller, quality control processor, account receivable, customer service representative, compliance analyst, and medical collector
    If you disagree with the new roles you suddenly have to perform, you are in violation of Maxim's compliance code.
    They will give you more work.
    When you try to prove yourself and show that you are consistent, and efficient in the quality and quantity of your work----they will give you more work.
    They will not give you praise you or give you any type of substantial monetary value for you hard work---just more work.
    The pay is not competitive.
    If the company is not doing well, you will not get a raise.
    The company has not been doing well.
    The bonuses have become increasingly harder to attain.
    The billing and posting deadlines become shorter and shorter in duration each year meaning you need to perform like a machine get your work done and be out the door by 5--very stressful.
    They don't seem to care that people do have lives outside of Maxim.
    Taking PTO has become harder, you will get guilted by everyone for taking a vacation or leaving early for a doctor appointment.
    You only get 6 paid holidays, 2 floating holidays, and 17 days PTO(2.61 hrs/wk).
    After 5 years the PTO only gets pushed up to 3.38 hrs/wk=22 days- this is all you will ever get so not much to look forward to.
    PTO + floating holidays is all the time you get off--most people don't realize the fact that in order to leave early or take a sick day that you have to USE YOUR PTO.
    There are NO paid sick/personal days.
    The work/life balance is terrible.
    The health insurance is not that great in terms of what your paying for and what you get.
    The medical deductible is high at $1250.
    The turnover is extremely high, thus new people to train all the time which takes up your time.
    The company is trying to save more money by not hiring more employees and just dumping former co-workers's work on you.
    The software systems used for processing data and performing work are outdated and very slow.
    Hardware around the office is constantly broken and in need of repair.
    Basic office supplies needed to perform your job are not in stock.
    Rules and procedures are always changing.
    Management and other slackers get to do what they want in their offices while the rest of us-about 40% do actual work.
    Slackers get to goof off for about a year until countless write ups eventually cause their termination.
    Management plays by their own rules, the only purpose they serve is to enforce rules and authority over their teams that are given to them by their management.
    Rarely do managers even know what a typical day is like for their team since they spend all day hiding in their offices or mingling with other managers.
    All of the good employees at this company eventually wind up leaving moving on to better things.
    The leftovers do not provide a promising outlook Maxim.

    I worked at Maxim Healthcare Services full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    It wasn't a long commute.

    Cons

    The department wqs run like a sorority. The head of the depatment had "favorites". Overall it was a toxic work envioronement. They are always hiring for Marketing positions - it's like a revolving door.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have respect for those who work for you.
