    I have been working at CareStar full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    CareStar is a great place to work! You have to be able to work on your own as they don't watch your every move! You have to be honest and reliable, dedicated to help others, and responsible to do what is expected of you to do. If you are not disciplined and self motivated, you will struggle. If you are then you will succeed. Pros are working at home and being independent.

    Cons

    Health Insurance could be better. If you are not disciplined or self motivated you will fall behind in your paperwork.

    I have been working at CareStar full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Independent working environment, good co-workers, set your own hours and pace to complete work

    Cons

    Expectation that you carry large caseloads. Families transferred to case managers without ever telling them and worse, not telling the families. Difficult to begin work with people you hardly know. Families get angry and take out their frustration on us.

    Advice to Management

    Listen when staff point out areas where the company could improve, especially in the area of how we're expected to interact and help clients and their families.

    Pros

    Work from home.
    Family oriented company.
    Understanding Supervisors.

    Cons

    I'm currently very pleased with employment. Insurance could be improved.

    Advice to Management

    thank you for making each employee feel as if they are equals. It is refreshing to feel appreciated.
