    Pros

    Great company to work for. It gives you a lot of freedom to work from home if you choose. Gives a lot of perks like discounts on the local cafeteria and gym memberships.

    Cons

    Management needs to work on how they treat their employees. At times you just feel like a number to them. Someone to pass work off to. And you sometimes have to work weekends.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to your direct-reports.

    Pros

    there are no pros to working here. unless you only want a paycheck and don't care about what work you do

    Cons

    they preach ethics but show none. low pay compared to other companies, insurance premiums go up every year and coverage goes down. managers and supervisors constantly changing, let go of long time employees to save money, promote remote workers then fire them all to save a buck. very negative work environment, high stress and no rewards.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    upper management is part of the problem. they are FOR PROFIT and use people then toss them like trash. they act like they don't know what is going on, but that makes them very ignorant or bad managers for not making sure they know what is happening at lower levels. Don't hold meetings and lie to everyone.

    Pros

    steady paycheck, just above poverty level

    Cons

    Management is greedy and very top heavy. One department can have 6 or more people in management over it. Any budget cuts go to the hourly workers and then raise the members rates. Mark Ganz once said at an employee meeting people that have been here over 5 years are not the employees Regence wants
