    Pros

    umm...you get a paycheck every 2 weeks

    Cons

    Favoritism is shown to home coders, and in house coders who have been here for a while. If you have concerns, they are brushed aside, and management tries to distract you with jokes, and never really try to help you with issues you may have (with other coworkers, how you are treated,etc). The Team Leads and QA's aren't all on the same page about stuff, so you will get lower scores on your audits because the way your QA does it is different that how your TL taught you..

    They expect you to work 100% perfectly all the time, and don't take into consideration your health, but would also be pissed if you stayed home for your health..I was once told I was the reason we had to do overtime because I was sick and had to take time off, when it wasn't even my accounts that were behind. This small office is part of a huuuge corporation that does not pay any attention to what is going on here, and that means they (management) can pretty much get away with whatever they want. Everyone here is miserable, there just aren't many coding jobs in Grand Rapids.

    Also, the pay is low whether you are certified or not, so don't even bother. This company is so cheap they won't even fix the ice machine in the break room.

    Advice to Management

    Get all new management, these people are set in their ways and don't like change...that's why our old manager left, they drove her nuts

    I worked at McKesson full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company has salaries that are appropriate for the positions, obtainable bonus options, opportunities for stock options and excellent healthcare benefits. First choice in the non-acute and acute care healthcare markets.

    Cons

    The ability to speak with someone live when needed versus email communications and having to wait days for a response. Making decisions and implementation of core company objectives in a more timely manner.

    Advice to Management

    Employees are the source for growth and revenue. Educate and train employees with the necessary and correct tools in all markets segments in order to continue success.

    Pros

    Good job room to develop future. There are also training if you would like to pursue a career path in management. Overall Great Company

    Cons

    Working from home could be challenging. If you do not reach out to Management they will not reach out to you. Must be self disciplined or it might not be the job for you.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to management would be to implement one on one meeting with employees at leat once a month rather than to wait for reviews at end of year. Check on goals made by manager and agent.
