    I worked at QualCare

    Pros

    Excellent health plan Excellent wellness program

    Cons

    Compensation very low compared to other insurance TPAs and carriers Archaic management structure and practices in the EHT location that competition abandoned 20 years ago. Not forward thinking. Managers and supervisors need training on people skills. Performance Management is a joke

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to enhance the training and skill sets of your front line Workers' Compensation and Liability supervisors and managers. Try to tie performance to attainment of corporate goals

    Horrible, clueless managers and miserable employees.

    You are losing major accounts with major hospitals like St. Barnabas ...the future looks grim. I have no advice for this company.

    Former Employee - Analyst  in  Piscataway, NJ
    Former Employee - Analyst in Piscataway, NJ

    I worked at QualCare full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    -Good training opportunities
    -Decent benefits
    -Learned a fair amount about the healthcare industry
    -Learned what kind of company I will never work for again

    Cons

    Where to start...

       -Unprincipled and untrustworthy management (I could write a book about the lying, backstabbing, throwing under the bus, lack of integrity and character, etc.)

       -Environment with no sense of purpose which creates fear, uncertainty, doubt, inefficiencies and major morale problems

    -A "What have you done for me lately" attitude from management

    -Managers are quick to grab the credit for successes, but demonstrate reluctance to admit any role in substandard performance

    -Very cheap company (I was in 25th percentile based off of Salary.com average salary for my position). Also nearly impossible to get a raise other than the 2% annual increase which isn't even guaranteed

    -The way employees are treated may not be considered abuse in the court of law but in real life, it is 100% an abusive environment

    -Micro management to a whole new level

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have no advice for management. I know based on my experiences that they are set in their ways and will not listen to any advice which is why I resigned.

    I have been working at QualCare full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Your paycheck is a MINISCULE bit of consolation....

    Cons

    Horrible work environment...filled with mostly incompetent people from top to bottom. There is no clear communication, consistency or structure. The so called supervisors/managers/director run the place like it's a sweat shop. The supervisors/manager/director in the hospital claims dept will throw you under the bus in a minute. They threaten their employees and sadly they cower into a corner and take the abuse. Most people that work here are miserable, insecure by the employees that are lively, smart and confident. They will gather and cook up ways to fire an employee they feel threatened by and sadly the people in HR are robots that play along. I wouldn't advice my worst enemy to work here and i am on my way out of this place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice...they should continue to run the company into the ground.

    I worked at QualCare full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Best thing about having worked there is knowing that ANY OTHER JOB out there is a WALK IN THE PARK compared to that place. Hands down, the WORST PLACE I'VE EVER WORKED!

    Cons

    This place is completely toxic on every level. DO NOT even considering working there. And if you are working there -- GET OUT before the toxic environment kills you!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have no advice to Management. They've all become part of the toxic environment, whether they know it or not.

    I worked at QualCare full-time

    Pros

    Excellent health benefits for employees.

    Cons

    Favoritism, very hostile environment (negative gossip, back stabbing, and jealousy), and "miserable" workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not try to favor your low-class group over one great co-worker. Do not believe/listen what your low-class co-workers whine about another great co-worker falsely.

    I worked at QualCare as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Very friendly staff, welcoming and patient when it comes to learning the workflow of the job. Cohesive environment helps to accomplish goals more efficiently and effectively.

    Cons

    As an intern, was not aware of the entire big picture. Could not take on more responsibilities unless checking through with the entire department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work, you're doing great things for your customers/patients.

    I have been working at QualCare

    Pros

    The work benefits (tuition reimbursement, wellness reimbursement).

    Cons

    The turn-over rate is ridiculous
    Employees are genuinely unhappy
    Stressful working environment (Dull lighting and gray walls).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be willing to listen more to your employees...hilariously enough...you were in their position once too.

    I have been working at QualCare as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Permanent employees can advance within the company.

    Cons

    Temporary employees get the short end of the stick.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat ALL employees the way you would like to be treated. Acknowledge the positive efforts made by employees, which will help benefit the positive energy within the department.
