    I have been working at Palmetto GBA full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Parent company is BCBSSC and as a work at home employee, their's not a lot of micro-management. The company encourages you to recognize your co-workers and your ideas are not summarily shut down. Benefits are affordable and their matching is very good at 6 percent.

    Cons

    The annual incentives are not that great, especially when you do not live in the state where the company actually resides. Not a lot of tele-work positions so, unless you're willing to re-locate, no advancement options.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize we all don't live in the same State and provide tools and opportunities to grow in one's career.

    Pros

    Good benefits packages and incentive programs for the employees and their families. Offers work from home positions for some jobs.

    Cons

    Training was horrible. The first two weeks were spent in training that didn't even pertain to us. Then we spent another two weeks of training that was still inadequate.

    Advice to Management

    Give your employees the proper training to do their jobs effectively. Hold people accountable for their actions. Listen to your front line employees when they come to you with concerns.

    Pros

    The work was interesting and the staff was nice. I enjoyed my time there.

    Cons

    There were a lot of layers of management (not that it's unexpected in an organization that size) so communication between levels and departments wasn't always great.

    Pros

    Work from home, flexible schedule, decent salary

    Cons

    One of the most dishonest companies I have ever worked for. Myself and around 200+ LPNs and RNs were hired in the Summer of 2016 for what they told us would be a 3 year contract. The project was shut down after around 8 months and we were notified on a Thursday (via email) that we were being put on an unpaid status starting the following Monday that would last approx. 2 months. All throughout the project we had been told by management that our work was great and our jobs were secure. Now suddenly 200+ professional nurses are drawing unemployment and scrambling to find new jobs because no one feels as if the company can be trusted even if we were to be called back to work after the furlough. Stay away!

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with employees

    Pros

    There are absolutely none to report

    Cons

    They lead us to believe that we had a good job with them. I worked for palmetto gba medical review ll. I feel so embarresed that I worked pcr claims. I reviewed claims in illinois, and I wish that I could contact them now and apologize for being involved with cms pcr review. What a waste of medicare money. The public and homehealth providers have know idea what a scam they have been subjected to

    Advice to Management

    Don't start a contract with the government that you are not qualified to handle
