Good people, less-than-exciting work

Statistical Analyst I (Former Employee)
Columbia, SC

I worked at Palmetto GBA full-time for more than a year

Pros1. People are generally kind.
2. Benefits are great
3. Flexibility in working hours
4. Chance for promotions every year.
5. On-site gym

Cons1. In my opinion, the pay is low.
2. Upper management is kind of stuck in place.
3. The work is extremely... extremely dull.
4. Work environment doesn't help with the dull work. Plain walls, disconnected feeling with the separate office spaces and need to have a key card to access different parts of the building. Just a cold environment.

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

Government Contract Work

Lead Applications Deveolper (Current Employee)

I have been working at Palmetto GBA full-time for more than 5 years

ProsNew development is available if you work in the right department. There is also an opportunity to work with different groups and technology.

ConsOutdated systems and software. There is also a lot of "dead weight" associates that work here and management is too laid back.

Advice to Senior ManagementSupport your direct reports and correct inappropriate behavior,

It was overall a good place to work.

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee)
Columbus, OH

I worked at Palmetto GBA full-time for more than 5 years

ProsThe benefits: the 401k contribution, the bonus, some people get unlimited overtime from time to time.. The coworkers are nice people.

ConsManagement. The training was a joke. The trainers don't teach you anything of importance. Then you start doing your job title and one day when you need management's help they act like you should know more than you do. Basically it's a way of shaming you for coming to them in the first place. Management is the last to let you know anything. They are always so "busy" and understaffed there is no time for you or your problems. Our providers tell us news and then we find out it's true by reading it from a website or supervisor confirms it at a later date. It's so sad. We had to basically teach ourselves the computer programs through trial and error. If you have problems don't go to management. They will make you wish you hadn't. They will turn everything around on you. You learn to deal with situations on your own. It's the paycheck that keeps you coming back for more. All jobs have pros and cons. There is no perfect place to work.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake care of the people that represent your company. They need to know you have their back.

Nice People, Company could be better

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Columbus, OH

I worked at Palmetto GBA full-time for more than 5 years

ProsMost people are great..If you need help, they will come running. The profit sharing that goes into ones 401k is a nice feature.

Consmanagement does not manage people, just checks off boxes to make sure things are done, with no concern on what is actually happening. If you do you work, you get more work to make up for the people that are there not doing the work.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop managing by checking a box. Train managers to manage

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

There is absolutely no room for advancement.

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee)
Columbia, SC

I worked at Palmetto GBA full-time for more than 3 years

ProsPalmetto GBA often has a demand increase for customer service representatives near the months of September and October, due to the Medicare enrollment process.

ConsPalmetto GBA takes absolutely no pride in its employees. Everyone is dispensable. Always have a back up plan when dealing with this company. They caused me to be homeless.

Advice to Senior ManagementHelp subordinates advance

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