    Pros

    there is room for advancement but opportunities are limited. NGS is a government contrator so the contract you work on could be lost leaving you to try to transfer to another contract. This has happend to me several time in 14 years but the company does try to retain and place good employees in other jobs. Good benefits and pay.

    Cons

    It is a division of Anthem and it can be difficult to make the change to the commercial side if you want to advance within the larger company. Sandra Miller is no longer the CEO -

    Advice to Management

    Continue to grow and increase communication between departments

    Pros

    Health insurance
    Hours 830-5 m-f

    Cons

    This is a ridiculous company. They don't give you PTO so your checks will be short of anything comes up. The call volume is high and the providers that call are rude. They expect you to do so much and know too much for what they are paying.

    Advice to Management

    Better pay
    Better training on just the skills needed

    Pros

    Flexible schedule. Location is right off the highway.

    Cons

    Terrible support from leadership. Seniors and business analyst knows less than some of the lower level staff. Privider enrollment is in complete disarray. New management has no clue.

    Advice to Management

    Make changes that will make a difference, instead of groups. You are harboring stagnation. Medicare is evolving and you are still working like its 1995.

    Pros

    -Great benefits
    -competitive pay
    -lots of PTO
    -lots of work at home capability

    Cons

    - not enough staffing to support the work needed; people are over allocated
    -senior management does not seem to care about lack of resources
    -lack of clear direction from management
    -no work at home policy (I list this as a pro and a con. While its great to be able to work from home whenever I want, people abuse the privilege. There is hardly anyone in the office and it does not promote a collaborative environment. There is a definite lack in a sense of 'team' or 'teamwork' in the office)

    Pros

    Pay
    Being a contractor to earn hourly pay
    Work From Home
    Good Benefits

    Cons

    The IT organization is a miserable place to be a part of. Upper management has a mentality of do it now with everything. No regard or understanding of what is involved or work life balance. Things have been on the decline significantly in the last six months and major key resources with Superior knowledge have left. Those who remain are those that could not survive elsewhere or are the managers who don't have the ability to do the work and schedule meetings and hire new unqualified resources. The president is out of touch with how bad the IT organization has become and what talent they have lost.

    Advice to Management

    The truth lies with those who have left the organization not those that remain. Surveying those that remain will only yield what you want to hear as there are a fear for their jobs. IT management needs to be restructured and change and full time talent needs to be restored and valued over contractors who are utilized too heavily while others work OT with not benefit. Also technical leadership with modern day talents are desired not those who never have done the work or may have 30 years ago.

    Pros

    Work at home is the best reason to be here.
    Most employees are friendly.
    Note this company has multiple types of work, hence many reviews of good and bad. Based on location, they are accurate. Some locations are much better than others, just as some are managed better than other departments.

    Cons

    Little chance for growth.
    Concerns and complaints stop at management.
    Improvements in systems are lackluster or non-existent, leaving IT programs to frequently crash.
    Very poor communication.
    Inadequate number of employees for the department. Some departments have been running short on full time employees for years leaving others to be overworked and stressed.
    Very little training for your position.
    Benefits keep decreasing
    Pay is average/sub-par to competitors
    Stop threatening employees with pay and bonus cuts in order to make them produce more work.

    Advice to Management

    Training is needed, clear guidelines and work instructions need to be present.
    Management needs to communicate and respond.
    Plan ahead for projects and have appropriate resources available.
    Hire more employees instead of working at a deficit and expecting them to do more.

    Pros

    Paycheck, benefits, and AIP for surviving a year

    Cons

    No work-life balance, poor IT management from the top down, inflicting fear of getting fired, good staff leaving and no one cares to stop and look at why. Contractors get paid hourly while salary employees work long hours, weekends and the company bills the government.

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes, don't add management layers that only make things worse and dont improve the organization.
