Pros

Starting out, this was a great company to get my foot in the door with. If you're dedicated, you can move up quickly, and if you've never had a professional job before, the money makes you feel rich. The biggest benefit the company offers is their paid leave. Starting out at 3 weeks a year, it bumps up to 4 weeks a year after 5 years or you become salaried, and a 5th week is added if you've been with the company 5 years AND are salaried.

Cons

As in many companies, a point is reached where you can no longer move up. The higher the rank within the company, the less turnover there is, so you end up getting locked into your position and accept your annual merit raises which hardly account for anything. From a benefit perspective, their 401K isn't the greatest. In my five plus years with the company, I've had them do a one time match which hardly accounted for anything. The sick time plan doesn't really make much sense either; you earn the time, but it's frowned upon to use it.

    Pros

    Great people and work culture, most employees had a strong work ethic and became great friends. Lots of smart people.

    Cons

    The workload was unrealistic most days. At least 12 hours needed to comfortably finish a day instead of all day rushing for 8 hrs without a breather, but had to finish in 8 hrs while answering continous phone calls for treatment auths and also reviewing multiple treatment progresses at facilities. High stress environment, where decision between hanging up on a doc whose call you needed all day for a treatment denial and a boss standing next to you telling you the other line is blinking and have to meet quota..pick up the other line...had to be made a lot. This was a licensed clinician job!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A training video doesn't always fix a problem and it sure doesn't obsolve you of all responsibilities to deal with negative employees. Your inaction can make strong workers leave.
