      Horrible place to work

      Pros

      Flexibility with schedule, decent amount of PTO

      Cons

      Management micromanaged everything we did. Constantly expected to go above and beyond what we are required to do with absolutely no compensation. They claim to be a competitive pay work place when we could make more money working at McDonald’s. Previous raises we have gotten we’re only 0.19 cents. Must be a management favorite in order to advance in this company. Multiple people promoted after fireable behavior. When you take your complaints to management, they basically tell you to deal with it.

      Micromanagement at its finest

      Feb 12, 2021 - Claims Adjuster 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Benefits, remote employment, low caseloads.

      Cons

      Extreme micromanagement; they do not allow a healthy work/life balance, nor do they allow for new comers to acclimate to the system before bombarding and overwhelming their employees. No upper management organization and claims system is archaic. The low caseloads seem appealing until you realize the caseloads are low due to the system issues. There is no capable way to handle an average caseload when you have to operate multiple systems(which crash often) to do simple requests. Upper management does not allow for work/life balance and does not understand the pressure being placed on it's colleagues.
