    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    The building is gross, the technology is outdated, and there is 0 flexibility.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.

    I have been working at Palmetto GBA (More than 10 years)

    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    Some corporate policies and HR practices are outdated.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

    Job security, room for growth, but you only get what you put in.

    They employ uneducated employees and pay them very low wages. This causes a lot of work to be incorrect.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time selecting quality employees.

    I have been working at Palmetto GBA full-time

    Pros

    There is nothing good about this company. The company employees can get jobs at BCBS, which is probably the best way to go.

    Cons

    Government contracts, employees get laid off, if the contract is not renewed. Government agents are very mean spirited and hostile towards the employees. Managers are treating their employees as slaves, and they don't really care. Employees who remain are the ones that are on retirement or on a long term pension.

    Advice to Management

    Scrap the management layer and start from scratch.

    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.
