    Pros

    The only pro are the co workers who attempt to work as a team and try to get the work completed timely, which usually happens only when everyone has worked overtime,to include weekends and Holidays.

    Cons

    Too many to name. Poor management. Micro managed. No communication other than when you are mandated to work extra and over your scheduled time, which happens all the time bc not enough staff to get the job done. People continue to leave this company. Not many left.

    Advice to Management

    Need to learn to communicate effectively. Expectations are not realistic for the job. There are many other companies that deal directly w Medicaid that do not have the problems this company has. Unhappy employees, stressful work environment, no kudos, only how much more can u do ?

    I worked at Carewise Health full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some of the best co-workers, extremely supportive,professional and friendly individuals.

    Cons

    Micro, micro management where quantity is more important than quality. Director has no business being in the position she is in-allows differences amongst employees responsibilities, harasses employees to the point of resigning. Management unsupportive and use and abuse the staff.

    Advice to Management

    Too many managers and the director needs to be replaced by an individual that respects, supports and communicates with the staff instead of acting like a "superior"!

    Pros

    The pay was good, benefits are okay.

    Cons

    Being on call was never fun. End users complained and made you look bad. Too many whiners who don't follow company policy. I liked working there until I was over powered by the employees I supported. To many chiefs and not enough indians. Moral in the office was down and the environment was depressing. Co workers weren't team players, only back stabbers. The chief operations officer is a snobby witch, rude, and needs to learn some manners.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better and do something to boost moral. Managers get away with murder because of the high level position. They do what ever they want and have no ethics.

    Pros

    Great people to work with. By working with a friendly and productive team a lot of days were more tolerable than others.

    Cons

    Board members lacked vision and rarely looked to for trending ways to increase profit but rather stay afloat.

    Advice to Management

    Work with the young talent that you have to expand the business

    Pros

    Clueless colleagues meant they leave you alone to do your job if you know your stuff and deliver. flip side of that coin is it gets lonely quick if you're used to getting stuff done collaboratively, as a team.

    You must admire the enormous undertaking and risk that senior management is taking with their new analytics platform. Software director was supportive and had huge apetite and curiosity for cutting edge technology, which he knew how to spread out over the team. The work I personally accomplished in my 6 months tenure was extremely satisfying and personally rewarding. This was due in part to the director's support, and also to my own work ethic and apetite for exploration and self-improvement.

    No pressure from director - which is great if you are self driven and need none.

    Cons

    - Golden opportunity being wasted away by burnt out employees who seriously poison the work environment. Appears that culture is geared towards group loyalty above actual skills, so be prepared to feel like you're the new guy for a long time.
    - Naysayers will doubt you and stonewall you purely out of ignorance of best practices and out of fear of looking bad, yet company is trying to go the "big data" route and adopting cutting edge technologies using 90's development practices. Go figure.
    - Do not count on productive teamwork. You'll do just fine if you enjoy working solo.
    Horrible benefits. No career path, promotions, raises, bonuses, clarity, no sense of direction.
    - For technologists that have thick skin, you may be able to navigate this mess. I burnt out in 6 months. Horrible and confusing environment to get work done.
    - Offshore team is seriously unreliable and can't keep up with even the most basic task.
    - Some senior people alienate the rest of the team by constantly praising their own inner circle.
    - Developers are treated as simpleton workers and don't really participate in architecture discussions or have a place at the table. Be prepared to have a whole project just dumped on you with the whole thing expected to just be done.

    Advice to Management

    The company culture and communication is non existent. No clear direction for the company. The fresh start that you are projecting onto everyone else seems to be more of the same. Eliminate the awful poisonous few.

    Pros

    Experienced friendly employees and management. Ample PTO . Extensive and thorough training offered for new hires.

    External hiring and internal promoting of under qualified employees to certain management positions.
