    Pros

    I wish I could say there were PRO's, there aren't. Terrible management, leadership etc. It starts from the top and steadily gets worse down the pole..

    Cons

    RN pay is $20.00/hr
    You are watched like a hound dog
    Leadership is pretty poor, try speaking up and you get ripped a new one
    My manager had 2 yrs experience and 5 yrs total as a RN??
    I saw people fired because someone else didn't like them or their personality

    Advice to Management

    Move on and hire "real" managers and leadership with some Health Insurance business other than so called claims processing.

    Pros

    I really love my coworkers and people around the building are nice.

    Cons

    The company does the absolute bare minimum for you. I was docked on an annual increase because of my maternity leave. I also came back with a new baby and 0 PTO. Our "incentives" were docked because of high turnover and high vacancy rate. Irony much?

    The building is gross, the technology is outdated, and there is 0 flexibility. I had a great manager who lost people constantly because of how poor the pay is. The higher ups could seem to care less about turnover since it does not directly affect them. The managers are the ones who suffer.

    Advice to Management

    Try being at least somewhat competitive with salaries. Give team managers more autonomy. Try to catch up with the 21st century HR policies.

    Pros

    Fast-paced, challenging, and innovative. Really trying to get ahead of the competition and starting to do so. Tries to take care of good employees.

    Cons

    Some corporate policies and HR practices are outdated. Fast-paced work can lead to burn out. Pace of change in industry is at times overwhelming.

    Advice to Management

    Try to take care of the good employees and eliminate bureaucracy.

    Pros

    Management does a great job of making sure staff are doing well not just in their day to day jobs, but in their individual skill developmento as well.

    Cons

    Not a con really, but it's a large company so if you want to stand out and advance your position you must be very proactive.
