    GREAT SUPERVISORS, RIDICULUS WORKLOAD, NO CONCERN FOR QUALITY

    Claims Examiner I (Former Employee) Woodbury, NY

    ProsThe benefits are reasonably good. Healthcare, vacation time are comparable to other large companies.

    ConsTHE COMPANY HAS CONFLICTING GOALS, INSANE PRESSURE AND WORKLOAD INTHE CLAIMS AREAS. ITS FAR BETTERTO TAKE A LOWER STRESS JOB WITH THE LOWER PAY GRADES. BUT BE ADVISED,. THIS COMPNAY CONOLIDATES DEPATMENTS ALOT. THE PROFIT SHARING FIGURES ARE EXCELLENT. HOWVER, ALOT OF THAT IS ALSO DUE TO JOBS THAT CONTINUE TO BE CUT.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSeriously? Give your employees reasonable goals. Stop ignoring the stress levels of your employees.

    Cheap labor

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsBenefits .. Tuition reimbursement.... B

    ConsDependability standards are too strict .. Stuff happens I am a single mom I don't have a plan b. so I miss time . I'm good enough to be in a development position but because of me being so good and they are short staffed for my position they hold me back because why give her a higher title and pay her what she deserves when they know they are getting better work for half the price.. Sick of being stuck
