    Work is too overwhelming with no guidance

    Case Manager (Current Employee) Sherman Oaks, CA

    ProsWork 9 hour days to get out early every Friday.

    ConsPoor management. Management fails to assist on problematic issues. Management makes your case load seem like a personal problem. No one reads.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSick policy is not realistic and should not be punished for being out sick. Train Managers to work as a Team.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great company to work for!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsPerks:
    Benefits (medical, dental vision), company picnics, free luncheons, paid training for some positions, annual bonuses and ample opportunity for advancement

    ConsThe company is moving to Chatsworth, CA, which for some will increase their commute time.

    Looks good at first glance.Under the covers a very sick company.

    (Former Employee)

    ProsModerate small company benefits. Ok health insurance partially paid for employee only, 2 weeks vacation, 3 days / yr sick leave, 401k with minimal match, long days 4 days / wk, 5 hrs Friday. The work they do for their clients is important and usually done well. Too bad they don't treat their employees the same way.

    ConsToxic culture, mostly bad managers with a few decent exceptions. Very high turnover. Low wages for the type of work performed. Minimal sick leave causes people to come to work sick. No indication that they give back to the community where the business is located. The pieces are there to make a company where people look forward to coming to work. Unfortunately, that potential is almost totally unrealized.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere is no point giving advice, it would not be heeded. To potential employees; unless you are totally desperate, look elsewhere.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A company that does not appreciate their employees.

    Case Manager (Former Employee) Sherman Oaks, CA

    ProsSome of the people that work here are amazing human beings. You have half days on Fridays. That's sadly where the positives end.

    ConsThe "Partners" don't realize they lose more money and productivity training new hires due to the high turnover rate. Invest in your loyal hardworking employees and maybe they'll actually stay.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou lose out on productivity when you're constantly training new employees that don't have the efficiency of the current experienced employees. Appreciate your current employees more and they will worker harder for you. Stop trying to pay your employees as little as possible while assigning obscene case loads and then blaming them for not keeping up. Why would anyone work hard when they're barely making above minimum wage and doing 3 people's work? Would you be able to stay productive getting such low pay with an obscene work load and then being talked down to by your supervisor for not keeping up? Didn't think so. Get it together Health Advocates.

    This Is A Joke Right?!?!?!

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsZERO, not a single thing!

    ConsEssentially anything and everything that you can think of is a con about this place! The people, the wages, the cost of benefits, the fact that you are treated like a number instead of a human being. I've had some crappy jobs in my life but this one takes the cake by far!!!

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe management staff, amongst the rest of the staff, should all be replaced ASAP.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
