    Pros

    Employee-centric culture, awesome management team and peer group - super smart and super nice people. Emphasis on staff and team development and engagement. Employee benefits are top notch. Employee retention is very high with several folks staying literally decades.

    Cons

    Pay is not real competitive, but this is balanced some by work at home and some of the intangibles. Opportunities for advancement are few and far between. Folks settle into a management role and then stay there for years. The only time a new management role opens up is when a new client signs on who can't be staffed with existing team members. Management team is top notch for the most part, but some areas could stand some new and current ideas to keep up with the competition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Send your mid level managers outside McKesson to learn current and relevant industry trends. Honestly and objectively evaluate performance of long tenured leaders who have been in the same position for years to see if they are truly progressing vs just maintaining the status quo.

    Pros

    I worked here as a Social Worker in the Healthier Florida disease Management Program (program contact ended and we were all laid off). The company was very professional with the lay-off process (fair severance, employment assistance, etc offered); as an employee I felt that my input was valued; salary and benefits were great!

    Cons

    not enough opportunities for licensed clinical social workers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't give up on Medicare/Medicaid contracts in Florida

    Pros

    They have a lot of money and tools to work with. Pleasant people.

    Cons

    Like many companies they are acquiring, selling and thinking about the bottom line not an extended future that includes a broader view of the individuals involved in the various ecosystems that they impact.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do a little more to offset the current difficult situation in the US Economy by paying your people well and rewarding "doing the job" as well as you do "saving money."

    There is so much potential, but management isn't making the kinds of decisions that will help us realize it.

    Pros

    WAH is a pleasure. Advancement is very possible due to high attrition. Incentive bonuses offered for retention offset lower starting pay. Team mates are supportive. WAH limits the rumor mill and workplace stress.

    Cons

    Many challenges exist working as a case manager subcontracted through the state working to assist Medicaid covered members. The quotas for case loads combined with the arduous assessment and follow up requirements in order to keep turning over cases is an ongoing strain. Trying to help those that are very sick and very poor when there is but a shred of a safety net left for these poor folks is a Herculean task. Add prevalent substance abuse and mental illness to the picture and, wow, it's not for the faint of heart. The frequent tech issues add to the excitement. The constant coming and going of staff is hard to take.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's time to stop under staffing and treating trained professionals as though they are disposable. Don't hide behind "the client" and "contractual agreements" when it is really possible for you to staff adequately and lower case loads so that you don't burn out your employees.
