    Pros

    Have a job. Ok benefits.
    Coworkers.

    Cons

    Management would be the biggest downside, incompetent, the only communication skills they have been taught is to talk down to the employees. Communication is awful.
    No work/life balance.
    Company converted systems because they were too cheap to pay to keep the current one. Employees have had mandatory OT since Oct '08, the money from the overtime is nice but the company doesn't allow more then 4 people per day to be off for the entire department. Many employees are unable to even get days off to do thing such as go to doctors appointments, care for sick children etc. IF you do take a day off it is counted against you and you will be reprimanded for it.
     Upper management could care less about it's employees, worse since Wise took over. They have no idea of what changing systems has done or how it is run so are constantly harassing lower managers on why productivity is not higher, which in turn makes for a very stressful work environment.
    Coventry is the American sweatshop.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to know why productivity is low and customers are mad, why don't come do the job so you'll have some idea of what you are talking/complaining about.
    Look up the definition of work/life balance.
    All of the managers should be fired.

    "Coventry -- Okay for Nurses if you are okay with low pay"

    Pros

    Good benefits, health care premiums are low. Does allegedly offer $5K/yr. tuition reimbursement.

    Cons

    Extreme salary disparities between people doing the same job. Concentra legacy nurses were promised by senior mgmt to be brought up to par with newly-hired Coventry nurses doing the same job, in 2007. Never happened. We are talking $7K - $15K difference here. There are few advancement opportunities unless you go back to school. So far, mgmt has not been flexible with student/worker schedules. There are no concrete guarantees from mgmt if you get a higher degree, your salary will go up to match that of the new hires.

    Advice to Management

    Stop shilly-shallying and give us answers. Raise our salaries to match new hires, as you promised. Listen when we tell you what's wrong, and fix it.
