    I worked at Colorado Access full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working with Medicaid members that really need support & a handful of amazing, heart focused co workers.

    Cons

    Disconnected leadership, privlidge, pretentious leadership, lack of diversity, shallow. Focus is not on effective work, middle layer of management is so thick & useless. The company overall does not impart trust, so it is not easy to trust what will happen to you. There is so much potential in the staff & is not used or nurtured.

    Advice to Management

    You are entitled & privileged people, please honor thatand put good use with it. It shows your interest in this work is not for the good of others but your status & ego.

    I worked at Colorado Access full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This was a great way to learn the ins and outs of Medicaid benefits. There was a ton of interactions with members and co-workers. Always felt supported by immediate team and supervisor.

    Cons

    There were multiple times extra work was expected without more compensation. Upper management was 'elite' and not approachable at all.

    Advice to Management

    Pay employees more and they might stay longer.

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

    Pros

    Flexibility, benefits, lots to learn, work from home, some awesome supervisors and managers to support you

    Cons

    Direction changes rapidly without a lot of planning or thought. Every few years 80+ employees are terminated due to financial crisis and program changes. People don't feel valued, supported or invested in. The culture is improving but now there's a lot of fear related to micromanagement (such as, you must contact your supervisor every two hours when out of the office, yet you are required to work from home 75% of the time and conduct outside meetings). Lots of turnover with experienced supervisors and managers.

    Advice to Management

    Micromanagement and fear mongering will never be effective. Find direction and stick with it - the roll out of changes and programs is really poorly planned and executed. Not everyone cares about the RAE bid. There seem to be a lot of conflicts of interest at the Executive level.

    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

    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.

    Pros

    1) Telecommuting
    2) Flexibility- laid back, they do not micromanage

    4) Four day work weeks

    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.

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