Pros

PPIL is a state-wide organization and serves many different groups - urban, suburban, and rural patients. It is an important safety-net provider.

Cons

It doesn't seem to matter whether you are super-competent or completely incompetent - you will be laid off or asked to leave at about the 2 year mark, sometimes earlier. The only people that stay are the VP level people. This means that at the service level there is constant turnover and there are always people in training who don't know the process.

Also the administrative office has an entrenched, isolated, toxic workplace culture.

Advice to Management

Sometimes line staff have good ideas, and people who go to work in the office building don't understand the stress at Aurora or Near North clinics.

    Pros

    Meaningful work. Fun, dedicated co-workers. Feeling like you make a difference. Lots of opportunities to learn. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Disconnect between higher-ups and those on the ground regarding how to improve service (read: scheduling). Pay is not livable.

    Advice to Management

    I love this job, and appreciate that our contributions are valued in an emotional sense. But it would be great if that could be translated into a financial investment in employees, as far as hourly wage.

  2. Fun place to work for the most part

    Pros

    Most management is very cool.
    You can do almost whatever you want at your desk.
    Co-workers are a lot of fun.
    You feel good for helping people out all day.

    Cons

    Large divide between people who work in the clinics and think they're better than everyone else and the people in the call center.
    Sometimes you feel like just a number to the upper management.
    Computer use is very very closely monitored, don't ever check your facebook at work :P

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the mostly good work!
