    I worked at Citizens Disability full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    I've met some of my closest friends here and have truly learned how to advocate. I have nothing bad to say about this place: - free lunch - free garage parking - free gym in the building - dog friendly office - lots of travel In the last few years, I've been able to go to more than 15 states and see a lot of places that otherwise I wouldn't have seen. I've been able to help hundreds of people, and it has been...

    Advice to Management

    This is still a young company; and you guys have obviously learned a lot in this time. But, the company is moving in the right direction and the right moves are being made.

    I worked at Citizens Disability full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The management is awesome and the multiple levels of management help to create a great system within the company to know where to go with what questions you have. You are surrounded by people who have mostly been here for 4-5 years and up. These people know what they are doing and have been through many phases of the companies development. They know a lot about this process so do not be discouraged if you are starting...

    Cons

    You deal with people who are typically in bad situations. You're probably going to get yelled at and have angry people you're going to have to deal with. As well you are going to hear a lot of awful stories about peoples lives. And you're job is most likely going to require you to move quickly through their questions or in assisting them with paperwork. You most likely are not going to feel good about that. But that...

    I have been working at Citizens Disability full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    You can make a lot of money here as an Attorney if you are willing to work. Base compensation is high and is directly tied to how many cases you are capable of handling. There is an opportunity for a Bonus every 6 month based on your win rate and generally everyone gets at least something. Free lunch, dogs allowed in the office and overall great work environment.

    Cons

    Not for lazy people. There are times when you need to work a little more than 9 to 5

    I worked at Citizens Disability full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    When I was still a PreQual Specialist, i felt like a superhero. You're not just working to earn money, you can also help people who were disabled. It made my work more noble.

    Cons

    None. I can't say anything bad. I love CD

    Advice to Management

    Make the wage a little bit more higher

    I worked at Citizens Disability full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    I made 3 friends. Nothing else.

    Cons

    You do not matter. Your achievements receive no acknowledgement but the slightest mistake can cost you a yearly bonus. If you mess up, no one tells you until your review, so you make the same mistakes, unbeknownst to you, for months until it is brought up during review. No bonus for you because management is complete garbage and cannot tell you the first or second time making a mistake that you need to fix it. Relationships...

    Advice to Management

    You're incompetent, you make horrible decisions, you care little to not at all about your employees. Your main concern is making money and saving as much money as you can. What happens? Horrible morale, the highest turnover rate I have ever seen anywhere, horrible business practices. Promote people who are smart and actually do their job instead of lazy, mediocre performers just because they have been there a little...

    Pros

    Hours are alright, allows you to get more sleep. Its a good job for people looking to do little work and skate bye if youre friendly with upper-management. Monthly (or so) company parties with alcohol and food. The CEO is probably the only person who cares to hear what you have to say.

    Cons

    `Minimal to no room for growth. `CFO doesnt even pay attention to whats going on within the company and then tries to change things on a whim (he also doesnt pay attention in meeting, I have witnessed on multiple occasions). `Multiple department heads have no idea what is going on in their own department, then ask for answers as to why things arent going as they want it to. `The company doesnt listen to any complaints...

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to whats going on in your company. Promote the employees who actually work and care about working instead of promoting your friend because you want your friend to move up. Stop playing favorites and let everyone have a voice.

      I worked at Citizens Disability full-time

      Pros

      Fun company culture, young employees, free lunches, frequent parties.

      Cons

      Quantity is valued over quality applications. Management only cares about numbers and not actually helping claimants get approved for disability benefits.

      Advice to Management

      Pre-qualifying services need to be approved to receive better leads and not put through people who have no idea what the company is and why we are calling. It aims to be very deceiving and quickly take people through the application before they have time to ask questions about the company.
