    I worked at Highmark Companies as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Outstanding management, I always felt they had my interests at heart and went to bat for me. I always had the tools and resources I needed - the company always provided whatever was required. One of the best employment experiences of my entire career.

    Cons

    Health Insurance coverage and rates are not competitive with larger companies' plans. Career opportunities are hit or miss, which is typical of any contracted-help firm.

    The company truly cares about the employees and the incentives are great. If you work hard and prove yourself that does not go unnoticed.
