Pros

Great co-workers! The starting pay is competitive and you can't beat the generous benefits package that starts on day one of hire. This particular location was very focused on achieving a strong team spirit - lots of activities and events to help break the monotony. Growing company with an impressive list of clients.

Cons

Although you get trained at "Claims College" its not enough to prepare you for the workload ahead. The workload starts light but quickly escalates in volume and difficulty (sink or swim scenario). If you don't enjoy this industry - it may be hard to succeed. Out of the 4 people hired for my location, only two stayed with the company. Expect to work very long hours. Expect to be on the phone all day and reviewing an endless stream of digital documents and e-mails. A sense of completion is non existent in this industry. There is plenty of paid time off, but when people come back from vacation they literally spend days catching up.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make sure to hire individuals that will succeed in this industry. Be more particular in the selection process - people with interest in the legal or health industry are your best bet.

    Pros

    No Pros can be said about this outfit.

    Cons

    Poor management. Unbelieveable workload that the most talented can not management. Management defiant that it can be done, which is a delusion. Terrible place to work. Morale low. Company operates on a low plane. Expectations obtuse compared to reality. Company recently bought out. That may be a good thing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Complete overhaul of this company is needed, from the top headquarters throughout. A bad deal..
