    I worked at CorVel full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free coffee and tea. Clean modern office space with free parking. Nice amenities in the area. Not much else to add

    Cons

    Poor/no training, leadership is disappointing, redundant work processes, computer systems are not geared to do the type of work being done, workload is too high, benefits do not begin for 90 days and are much more expensive than other companies. Employee turnover is very high and morale is low. Very toxic environment.

    Advice to Management

    Take real action to change. Focus more on employees and their very real concerns.

    Pros

    None, that I can think of.

    Cons

    Management staff is in above their heads; they do not know how to keep their promises to employees.They do not know how to interact with their employees on a professional or personal level. Very Condenscending.
    Benefits were terrible. Limited to two weeks vacation until you are there 5 years.

    Advice to Management

    Resign.

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

    Pros

    Some are allowed to work from home.

    Cons

    Deliberately created "competitive" working environment where all work product results are provided to all the staff to "make you compete with each other to do better". Healthcare plans are expensive and cover virtually nothing. Yes you get 7 sick days but what ever you do don't take them because they can affect your pay. I.E. penalized for taking too much time off.

    Advice to Management

    Stop worrying so much about your profits for the quarter and worry about the fact that your employees cannot afford your health care plans. Either pay them more or find better health care options.

    Pros

    Ice machine - decor was okay. Building was nice - had lots of candy and food but truly not much more to say

    Cons

    Management does not know how to hire or train or run a claims office. They do not know standards in the industry - basics to running a claims department. To quick to hire temps or anyone without really exploring other ideas therefore lots of turnover. Benefits are horrible. Too much gossip and not enough based on facts or even the law. Non ethical No training manuals or standards have been set up.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to hire people with more knowledge than yourself or you will continue to fail. Create training programs. Appreciate those that recognize the downfalls and try to help

    I worked at CorVel full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The hours of operation, holidays off. Would say company picnic is a plus, but it's not. Employees are expected, if attending, to cook the food, bring dishes and work the amenities (i.e. cotton candy machine, snowcone machines, etc)

    Cons

    The training was unstructured, was on the floor dealing with calls with an employee before even having knowledge of systems. Witnessed new employees being moved to newly created positions (with more pay) before position was ever announced to tenured employees. No on site HR; had no one to air grievances to that wasn't directly "above" me. Multiple employees cited concern about saying anything for fear of being retaliated against. A few even advised that "they", the management, have not even written people up (no first, second warning) but will suddenly present a final written that threatens with termination. The corporation requires employees to sign off on a handbook that the pharmacy division deviates from.

    Advice to Management

    Get an on site HR department or HR specialist onsite immediately. Your corporation, specifically the pharmacy division; is lacking in professionalism, continuity and equality on a gender/race/performance level.

    Pros

    they offer a flex schedule and flex time

    Cons

    they have HORRIBLE communication, rules only apply to certain employees, supervisors are not personable and do not coach, training is done by many different people instead of one designated person, they play favorites, the pay is loooooow, you have to fight to take your earned vacation or sick time, very unorganized.

    Pros

    free food from time to time and free coffee

    Cons

    This is by far the worst place I have every experienced in my life. Do yourself a favor- DO NOT APPLY, DO NOT STOP AT GO AND DO NOT COLLECT $200. Management is lost and simply need to hit the restart button. There is ABSOLUTLY NO TRAINING and you are misled. This place shoots first and points the blame later. Unprofessional at all times, no respect, no one is sure of what they are doing, no real supervisor (because all they do it place work back on your lap) and awful benefits. They are sure to pile on problematic and outdated problems on your lap and since you are the new person they now become your problems. You set up to fail and by the time you figure out how to do things your drowning in work. Simple work is over complicated and keep in mind they do not train you. People don’t stay and quit on a weekly basis. This is the bottom of the pole compared to any insurance carrier or third party administrator. If you are desperate for a check and willing to deal with stress beyond the standard claims job then hey, but don’t say you weren’t warned. I have never been so disturbed, stressed, disrespected as I was here. I ran out of there as soon as could. Not worth anything except a check and the co-works were great people.

    Advice to Management

    START OVER

    I worked at CorVel full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Casual dress (including jeans) permitted on Fridays.

    Break room is nice.

    Cons

    Some CorVel managers use staffing agencies to find workers and then abuse the “temp-to-hire” system by doing everything possible (including lying during the interview process) to keep the worker on a temporary basis instead of actually hiring them (thereby denying the worker any benefits). If you are coming from a staffing agency, do not expect to be hired permanently, no matter what you are told.

    “Temp-to-hire” workers are not considered part of the team, and are deliberately excluded from departmental activities like Christmas dinners and holiday activities.

    Managers are threatened by any signs of intelligence, quick learning or independent thinking from their employees. Proactive attempts to work more efficiently are punished, not rewarded. Managers will go out of their way to decide that if an employee is capable of working independently, the employee must have made some mistakes, even if there are no mistakes to be found.

    Micro-managing is rampant. Supervisors routinely treat their employees in a rude, condescending manner, and will blame employees for mistakes that were actually made by the supervisor. The combination of paranoid, impossible-to-please managers and tedious, nose-to-the-grindstone tasks results in an extremely stressful work environment.

    The office is deathly quiet. Managers discourage face-to-face interactions by expecting employees to use Skype/IM, even when the manager or co-worker is only a few steps away from the employee’s cubicle. Employees are deskbound and have little opportunity for physical activity other than during lunch or short walks to the restroom.

    Opportunities for upward advancement are pretty much nonexistent. (Management is at least up-front about this.)

    Advice to Management

    CorVel managers already believe they know everything and do not welcome employee input. Offering advice to management would be an exercise in futility.
