Pros

Working from home. Benefits package is excellent.

Cons

Top down management who treat employees with a lack of regard. Lack of acknowledgement on a daily basis.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

They should make an effort to treat employees with dignity, respect, and as professionals. Avoid sending groups of employees emails in which the inappropriate use of terseness and lack of regard for staff as they would wish to be treated. Need to educate managers on leadership trends in today's world, then follow through to encourage employees to speak up. Also, soliciting ideas from employee's would be beneficial for the company. We have great ideas. Nobody wants to hear them. Ultimately, member satisfaction, employee satisfaction, and fiscal health would be the results.

    Pros

    If you like to be told what to do, how to do it, and why you are doing it..... If you are early in your career and looking to gain experience.

    Cons

    Super-sized organization with super-sized egos and very little focus on people. Throughout the acquision process our organization was treated like an unwelcome second cousin and this approach translates directly to the way they treat thier customers and how the organization is perceived by clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Walk the talk! Take a hard look at the kind of leaders you are developing. Don't rely upon technology to solve all your problems. Invest more in your people and do it an way which uses techngoly to enable - not to dominate and control.

    Pros

    We really try to beat the stereotype of the big bad insurance company. I feel good about going to work every day as I know that I am empowered to help people. I have never seen a claim denied just because we are trying to save money. We have policies that are laid out that dictate how we pay claims, all of them based on medical evidence, not the bottom line.

    Cons

    In a company this big communication between departments is very difficult. If I have to get work somewhere it can take a long time to get it back, this affects my ablity to help the people that contact me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up, we need to focus on the customer and provider relationship, once we do that the money will follow.
