    Many great people working there.

    Pros

    It is really hard to justify working for this company when you work in the call center/customer service because it is known as the worst department to work in.

    Cons

    You have the opportunity to move to other departments; and department other than customer service was known to be good.

    Advice to Management

    Management in customer service was like dealing with high school drama; it makes sense why the retention rate if horrible and management was always changing.

    Pros

    Benefits and incentives are decent.

    Cons

    Everything. This place makes life pretty hard and they could really care less about you as an employee. No work life balance, their PTO is a joke, and the company overall is just a mess.

    Advice to Management

    Stop worrying so much about time card policies and focus on your employee work performance. Really reconsider why your turnover rate is sky high...no one is happy here. Your work-life balance is horrible for non-exempt employees and it's really not fair...it shouldn't be so dang hard to just go to the Dr or attend to family matters. I shouldn't be lectured about attendance policies or made to feel guilty every time I have a Dr appointment. Maybe care about your employees a little more,,,just in general.

    I have been working at American Specialty Health full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I'm in Consumer Technology, which is made up of UX, UI, developers, and QA. I really like working here because of the people on the team. We have a lot of trust and support, which is sometimes hard to find at bigger companies. I really like my colleagues, and I appreciate the emphasis management puts on improving and learning. The tuition reimbursement policy is really great, too. The company pays for 80% of your fees up to $2000 every year. It's great incentive to learn new things! Some companies can make you feel like a pixel-pushing cog, but we get to take on a lot of responsibility with our work, which gives you a certain ownership.

    Cons

    ASH can sometimes have a corporate feel, but there's been a culture shift recently that makes it feel much more like a startup.

    Pros

    I have proudly and happily worked at ASH for over 18 years! At ASH, I am able to express my individuality, while my coworkers and I work together toward common goals. We support one another while creating a positive, productive, and dynamic environment. I've been given numerous opportunities here and have grown a great deal professionally. I began my career in an entry level position and now hold an upper management position. I am so thankful for the superior leadership, incredible working relationships, and challenging yet satisfying work offered at ASH.

    Cons

    I have no cons to offer.
