    I have been working at Colorado Access full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Forward thinking with teleworking and great team environment. Awesome benefits. Cool people. Lots of open spaces for collaboration. Fun culture with creative company activities.

    Cons

    Some upper management people are stuck on a pedestal and are never happy. Isn't that the same at most places though?

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to the employees and do what you know is right. You have a great group of employees who just want to be heard.

    I worked at Colorado Access full-time

    Pros

    Good mission, some great people, good work life balance, many departments have flexibility and telework ability

    Cons

    Complacency among the workforce, dealing with some incredible bureaucracy at the state government level, most departments have almost no career progression path

    Advice to Management

    Bring as much accountability as possible. Reward good employees. Spread bonuses down below the director level. Create career development paths in all departments.

    Pros

    1) Telecommuting

    Cons

    1) Pay- Colorado Access pays significantly less than other similar positions.
    2) Upper Management- They do not care about their care managers. They do not listen to their employees.
    3) Turnover Rate- Highest I have ever seen.
    4) LARGE caseloads.

    Advice to Management

    People are not going to stick around if the pay does not increase.

    I have been working at Colorado Access full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work schedules, PTO, telecommuting, easy and rewarding work, promotion opportunities, 401K match, appropriate benefits.

    Cons

    Lots of turnover, low wages, high caseloads, too many directors (many of whom have conflicts of interest due to other jobs/positions), lack of transparency, financial instability.

    Advice to Management

    Recruiting is a joke and turnover is out of control. You are losing quality people due to inefficiency in processes and poor pay/detention policies. Many good candidates slip through the cracks due to poor HR management. The CEO appears brazen and does not appear to value his employees or the company. I only see him at the annual meeting so perhaps my opinion is not valid. Can't remember the last time executive management was in the office. Some transparency would help the image that the executives and directors are lining their pockets and driving luxury cars, when most of the employees have below industry salaries. Change the mileage policy as many are required to work from home and required to conduct business in several counties, without reimbursement of mileage.

    I have been working at Colorado Access full-time

    Pros

    Work/life balance used to be good; now people are expected to do the jobs of their departed coworkers as well as their own. Non profit mission is the only pro at this point.

    Cons

    Financial mismanagement, poor leadership, cronyism, and lack of direction has gotten them to a very bad place. The leadership team flits from idea to idea like butterflies, with no focus. Many leaders were promoted over their skill sets due to cronyism or the desire to only hear what the leaders want to hear. There is huge turnover in this company. There are also no increases based on merit, only by who you know. The leaders do not lead by the company values.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lining yours and your friends' wallets and actually start serving the people of this state. I know you all think you are being underpaid, but you are all well overpaid for the inept leadership. Show that you care about your lower paid workers by working to get them back their bonuses and cost of living increases.
