    I have been working at Primaris (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Bright, energetic and engaged staff with high qualifications and experience in health care improvement. They truly want to help health care providers acheive better care, better outcomes at lower cost. They work well in teams and support each other. CMS is getting a good quality product from this team.
    Managers are dedicated and trust their staff to accomplish the assigned tasks. There is no micromanaging.

    Cons

    There is some transition happening at this time with the work of the company and expectations. Any change can be difficult but the the staff, management and leadership are tackling it with new ideas and an appreciation of what could be done.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to keep your staff informed and continue to show how much you care about them.

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

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, work load, and friendly staff.

    Cons

    Pay is not impressive unless you're in management and even then I'm not sure if it's that good; management acts like typical management - they put themselves on a pillar; new ideas are hard to pass in some departments; no clear direction; financially unstable; zero career paths; recent downsizing has made a negative environment; and a lot of backstabbing and it's too small of a company to tolerate this.

    Advice to Management

    Get down to the level of your employees. Stop touting yourselves as the greatest thing since peanut butter and making your employees feel like they are just steps in your success. Who cares where you got your degree or how good you are at doing such and such. Respect begets respect. In addition, put people into management who are actually good at managing people, excellent leaders, and have a successful history of managing that particular type of department.

    Pros

    With a mission to improve healthcare services, Primaris is a diversified healthcare consulting firm. It has an employee-friendly HR department and open-communication senior leadership. It is a professional workplace. Everybody tries to excel in what they do. Great benefit package. Value work-life balance. Commitment to social responsibilities.

    Cons

    Relatively small in company size, hence less opportunities for advancement. Business life line still relies on CMS QIO contract that cycles every few years. Uncertainty of future business.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Recruit and retain the brightest talents to develop new lines of business. Reduce dependence on federal contracts.
