    I have been working at Care1st Health Plan full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice people. Company tries to show it cares about employees.
    Casual dress. Remote work possible.
    Some departments (just a couple) are filled with high-caliber people.

    Cons

    No room for growth or promotion.
    Only a select few management favorites get promoted.
    A majority of the company positions are filled by uneducated employees.
    Low pay.
    Now have to pay for health insurance. This isn't the norm for a health plan.

    Advice to Management

    Create opportunity for growth and promotion.
    Better, more thorough screening of new hires to ensure they know enough English and have the skills to communicate with the public and project a positive impression of the company.

    I worked at Care1st Health Plan (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    They were very friendly, and very employee oriented. They had several events for employees. I was only a seasonal worker, but my supervisor was very approachable and understanding. Flexible hours.

    Cons

    Unable to find any. I was a temp, so perhaps I did not experience any.

    I worked at Care1st Health Plan full-time

    Pros

    Only reason I took this job was because it was close to home

    Cons

    Expectation of a lot with minimal training and guidance. Management has unteasonable expectations and believes that experienced people should know exactly how their company functions.

    Advice to Management

    Give people time to learn their jobs before expecting a lot out of people.
