    Extreme pressure, little training

    Reimbursement Specialist (Former Employee) Tulsa, OK

    ProsVery good benefits, above average compensation

    ConsInconsistent training, high pressure, high expectations

    Advice to Senior ManagementInvest more time in hands-on training. It's beneficial to the employee and the company to invest time in the employee before expecting complete job knowledge and possible sub-par performance.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Was a great employer until 2 years ago

    TeleHealth RN (Current Employee)

    ProsGet to work at home with resources available via instant messaging for computer issues or clinical questions. Good pay and benefits.

    ConsRecently there has been pressure from upper management to meet time metrics without fail. No consideration about the patient. And no consideration of the nurses individual contributions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo not expect that staff will meet the time metrics each and every month.

    Poor Management and will write you up if a mistake is made

    Driver (Current Employee) Portland, OR

    ProsGreat Benefits. Poor pay. Average equipment.

    ConsManagement, minimal training, Over-time now that McKesson has purchased us. They want to cut overtime. I was trained for two days. This group flies by the seat of their pants.. The top manager loves to swear alot!

    Advice to Senior ManagementFire the management out of Auburn WA. and use your own management in Wilsonville OR. Management in WA is a bunch of bullies!!!

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