    I have been working at Gilsbar full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Very friendly workplace with an understanding in the need to be flexible for a happy work/life balance. The company does try to stay on top of constantly evolving with technology, and keep employees motivated. There is also a really great wellness program, which promotes a health lifestyle, to balance the monotony of working at a desk.

    Cons

    No real complaints to list. It's been one of my best workplace experiences thus far.

    I have been working at Gilsbar full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours and being able to work remote for the transactional jobs that can be measured is outstanding.

    Cons

    Working remote is kind of tough at times because you are not learning from listening to others around you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Require remote workers to come into the office frequently.

    This is a very good place to be an employee. The feel of family is ever present.

    Pros

    The group that I work with are a good bunch of people. Everyone has a willingness to help one another.

    Cons

    Due to the ever changing world of medicine, it can be challenging to process claims from time to time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to care about your staff. The occasional "pat on the back" should be extended to everyone that is doing the best that they can do.

    Pros

    I love my job at Gilsbar. One of my favorite things about working at Gilsbar is the company benefits. Specifically, the wellness program is outstanding. I love earning wellness bucks for doing things that I would or should already be doing! Another thing I love about working at Gilsbar is that there is very extensive training and it is ongoing. Gilsbar is always striving to improve and move with the tides. One last thing I love about Gilsbar is the people I work with and for. Everyone has a sense of humor and are always willing to help.

    Cons

    Some of the challenges of working at Gilsbar is that sometimes there are miscommunications between different departments about procedure. Also, as a TPA, it can be a challenge pleasing the clients outside of Gilsbar.

    Pros

    Flexibility in hours is a real plus! Good benefits. Ability to work remotely has been a big help to family life. Many good coworkers.

    Cons

    This is a busy environment. Expectations are high and sometimes hard to meet.

    I have been employed with Gilsbar for almost 24 years. Gilsbar has always been a wonderful place to work.

    I have been working at Gilsbar full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Since moving to Covington, LA almost 24 years ago, Gilsbar became part of my family. They have been very caring, concerned and understanding with all employees within the company. They welcome any opinions their employees have to offer. In 1999 I was given the opportunity to work from home. Having 2 children, this was a true blessing. I love the flexibility of my hours and I absolutely love my job. I feel there are not too many people in this world that can actually say they love their jobs. I am a very motivated employee and Gilsbar makes it easy for me to give 110% of myself to them.

    Cons

    Honestly I can not say anything bad about Gilsbar. Of course there are always going to be ups and downs at any company but for the most part I wouldn't change anything. I feel very fortunate to have them as my employer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. A few recognitions here and there can make your employees feel like they are doing a great job. We all like to hear the postivie.

    I worked at Gilsbar (more than an year)

    Pros

    Causal atmosphere, people are really nice, work is interesting most of the time

    Cons

    Cubes are tiny and there is no ergonomic consideration. Company is behind the times with HR policies like vacation and expenses. Pay was okay for the area but raises were small. Company would sell products without a process to create them which meant lots of work and disappointed customers.

    Pros

    There were plenty of chances to advance if you liked to suck up and play politics.

    Cons

    Everything else- poor work-life balance, restrictive work environment, mediocre compensation, incompetent leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please consider a more bottom-up model where you consider the concerns or the worker bees who are engaged in day to day work.
