I have been working at Empyrean Benefit Solutions full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Company Culture and new building is great. People are relatively young, great for newly graduated candidates. Great training process. Quickly growing company.

Cons

Stressful, long hours during Open Enrollment. Low pay for the work hours required. You don't really have a say in what type of work you do. They pick and choose where you go and you are stuck with it. Extremely high turnover.

Advice to Management

Pay employees more and you will limit turnover.

    Pros

    there are quite a bunch of very smart people working here from whom you can learn a lot of transferrable skills. there's a stocked up refrigerator and quite a few happy hours. You can wear different hats in the business analyst role that will help you anywhere you decide to move on to.

    Cons

    pay really really sucks. You are VERY overwhelmed with a lot of work such that prioritization becomes almost impossible. So many things calling for your immediate attention at the same time. A laptop is given to you so you can work from home especially during the "open enrollment" season, which is the busiest time for the company. It Is very common to miss deadlines and if you do not sound the alarm when being overwhelmed, you might be the next employee being kicked out of the door. It is very easy for you to do a lot of work and never get acknowledged or rewarded for it.There is also a lot of favoritism and if you are not one of the "favored few" then you must continually watch your back. There are clicks in the office and a lot of gossip too.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more and quit with playing favoritism. Openly acknowledge and reward your performing employees. Properly train incoming employees with no prior benefit experience and attach them to more experienced people for some intense shadowing before throwing them to the front of clients. Managers should also take blame when things go wrong.
