    I have been working at American Specialty Health full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Casual dress code, flexible hours, comfortable office environment, activities/committees to join and participate in, benefits and discounts on insurance premiums for using an activity tracker, low-cost gym memberships, friendly coworkers, great office locations.

    Cons

    Time difference between the various office locations, salary is somewhat on the low side from industry averages.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the open lines of communication! Another pro about working at ASH is that the senior managers and directors truly value your opinion and want you to succeed and make this a lifetime career.

      I worked at American Specialty Health full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      The best part of working here are the people. ASH prides itself on hiring the right people, and for the most part they are able to back that up. Other pros are the benefits they offer and the ability to move laterally within the company (after 1 year) to further your career goals.

      Cons

      Ultimately I think the pay is not as competitive as it is elsewhere in the industry. My experience was also that executive management can be stuck or stubborn in the direction of a goal or project to a point where they don't really listen to the advice of people in specialized support roles.

      Advice to Management

And as...
