    I have been working at Monarch HealthCare full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very good environment to work in. Colleagues are very friendly and helpful. As a new employee, I get my answers cleared very fast and my manager is very cooperative and understanding.

    Cons

    Employee morale is low because of low salaries. I saw 6 longtime employees leave in a month which I feel is not promising.

    I worked at Monarch HealthCare full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Management is one of the best I've had. Everyone has a deep knowledge of their work. Most employees have been for a while in the company and it feels like a community. This is one of those companies where meetings are productive and things get done right. People are very respectful and you your work is appreciated.

    Cons

    I left after almost three years because I had the need to different technology challenges There were a limited number of projects that I could work on.

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to have one on one with employees to listen their career goals so the company can provide new challenging diverse projects so they can work on

    I have been working at Monarch HealthCare full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    salary is decent, for the industry

    Cons

    Unless you are related to someone in upper management, or have years of seniority, be prepared to be shark bait for anyone looking to step on your fingers to keep themselves afloat. Management and HR very unprofessional. Its clear you need to "play the game", or be eaten by the clique. Firings very frequently, for no apparent reason. Scary place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe take some advice from your new owner, United Healthcare. This isn't an OC clique....its a professional medical management group. Try acting as such. You cant survive using these tactics.

    I worked at Monarch HealthCare full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benifits are decent. That's about it.

    Cons

    No room for advancement unless you're one of managers/directors favorite. This place allows sexual harassment to happen,

    Advice to Management

    Selling to United was the beginning of the end. One male manager walks around wearing makeup and womens clothes on...creepy.

    Pros

    They look after their employees, they take us seriously. Everyone is treated well regardless of the role they play within the company. They are aware when the work loads are heavy and try to alleviate it, but they won't hire quantity unskilled people over quality people. They'd rather work short and find us good employees to help, which I appreciate.

    Cons

    It can get busy and hectic, although it is not that bad compared to previous areas of health care I have worked in.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to use our feedback for improvement. Continue to show appreciation for staff. Honestly, the methods and ways the company uses are great. Don't change it!

    Pros

    They have 9/80 program other than that I don't see any positive things with the company.

    Cons

    Very stinky place to work if you are a IT professional.
    Managers are not experienced and not professional.
    They fire people almost every week without any reason.
    They recruit people with false promises.
    Benefits are very poor, you pay almost everything from your pocket.

    Advice to Management

    That can't be corrected as they made it that way and wishing to make that way.

    Pros

    - Talented staff (if they stay that is -- most are looking to move in the next year)

    Cons

    - No respect for IT
    - No leadership or vision
    - Lots of empty promises

    Advice to Management

    - Stop favoritism from management (specifically the IT director)
    - Treat the technology team like they actually know what they are doing
    - Treat team as people... not just workers
