    Pros

    Communicating the merger with Aetna could have been better. Sending an email with the news Friday at 2:18 am before the 4th of July weekend was great from a corporate standpoint but was like a slap in the face for the employees.

    Cons

    Still a good company to work for at least for another year. Who knows what will happen next.

    Pros

    Fast paced company. Advancement opportunities are offered to thise who show the initiative and work ethic, not just a carrot at the end of a stick like most employers in this industry

    Cons

    Complacency is common. Working with other whom dont appear to have the qualifications for their responsibilities is common. Having to deal with these people is a day to day struggle.

    Advice to Management

    Accountability is a bit lacking. Fears of blowback from desceplinary action or dancing around HR is a bit excessive.

    Pros

    Great compensation and you learn a lot.

    Cons

    Often not included in important decisions that impact you. Working with other departments can be difficult due to nature of corporate reporting structure and competing priorities.

    Advice to Management

    Include employees in decisions that affect them.

    Pros

    Good pay and great co workers. Very diverse place to work. Good training on new implementations

    Cons

    Management will stunt your growth if you are not friends with them or their friends dont like you. Upper management will always see eye to eye with your direct manager even when they clearly are in the wrong

    Advice to Management

    Select new management based off if knowledge of the job and not if they are your friend. Allow others to move lateral and up based off of performance. You have alot of workers who are stressed and over worked. Create a better life/work balance. Focus on retaining people. You have lost alot of good people due to personal feelings and or friends personal feelings.

    Pros

    Great work experience . Work from home with occasional travel to conduct visits. If your lucky to have a great supervisor that really is there for the employees and will help you grow.Positive work environment and easy going. A supervisor that does not assume negative. Your work flow will be excellent.Be on top of your work don't fall behind and all will be OK.

    Cons

    If you are unlucky to have a supervisor that falls under the criteria: need of skills and how to work with people. Last minute changes and no consideration of current role and tasks that are needed. Demanding that are selfish and are never wrong will stun your growth. If you fall behind because of changes you are proven guilty and will be scrutinized and you will be unable to do your job. It's a shame that such a great opportunity employees are taken for granted and are never to progress. Hostile environment is created and Well being will be affected or discrediting will occur. You are then micromanage until your wheels fall off. Be aware of this happening so remain positive throughout and find another job.

    Advice to Management

    Not everyone that has a minor set back is not a good asset to the company. If an employee falls behind. Ask all question, communicate all concerned topics and assist to better or help improvement. Please hire professionals that yes know how to do their jobs but that are also people persons and or have experience with dealing with individuals/groups in general. Possible in services for manager's /supervisors on management's skills and how to keep a good work flow with team. Have goals set on each team leader and how to assist with possible advancements from within or how to keep the cool when an issue arises. More training is needed to avoid future problems between staff and supervisors relationships. Employee will feel comfortable when a leader will show motivation, assistance, encouragement and a maintain an environment of peace but achieve all work needed. .

    Set clearer priorities for associates.
