    I worked at Capital District Physicians' Health Plan full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Salary, yearly bonus, holiday party

    Cons

    Upper management changes frequently, micro-managed, stress and pressure to meet ever-changing policies and procedures, different policy views of QA team and claims examiners.

    Back off micro managing, come up with better QA guidelines and production goals that are achieveable. Stop favoring certain employees

    I have been working at Capital District Physicians' Health Plan full-time

    Pros

    Generous benefit package, competitive salary, on-site amenities cannot be beat between cafeteria, gym and locker room. Opportunity to advance career is amazing!

    Cons

    For a company barely over 30 years old, there is more bureaucracy than necessary. CDPHP is getting better at moving quickly in this quickly changing healthcare landscape.
