    I have been working at SCF Arizona full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great training, learned a lot about workers' compensation claims management and state law. Was able to create a business afterward.

    Cons

    The company has gone private, which may be a good thing for take holders but not for the employees. Many were let go in the transitions.

    Advice to Management

    none

    Pros

    The benefits were decent, Arizona retirement system was a real bonus

    Cons

    too much favoritism, people are rewarded for who they know, not work being performed. Way too many executives and they are so out of touch with employees.

    Advice to Management

    Fire yourselves!

    I have been working at SCF Arizona full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    SCF has incredible benefits for employees. We have nearly free healthcare with an onsite wellness clinic, subsidized medical and lots of preventative medicine offered onsite. Management is friendly and approachable and encourages ideas. Pay is fair and there are incentives for reaching and exceeding personal and corporate goals. Excellent vacation policy.

    Cons

    Would like to see more employee dress up for work. Some employees too casual for a business environment.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the collaboration.

    I worked at SCF Arizona full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    competitive pay and benefits. Decent work hours and paid holidays. Great co-workers who try to cover each other's backs in a bad management work environment.

    Cons

    Unclear job descriptions and objectives. Working here is like trying to always hit a moving target. Management makes very bad business decisions and employees blamed for management failures.

    Advice to Management

    take ownership of your failures, not just your successes. Reducing employees down to just merely "Doing as told" excessive micro-management is counter productive.

    Pros

    SCF has a great work/life balance. The management is competent and easy to work with. There are plenty of projects and the management knows how to time the deliverables so that the work is not overwhelming. The various teams are mostly easy to work with, are professional, and understand current priorities - great customer service.

    Cons

    Some departments are short staffed which can make things difficult especially when trying to complete projects. Sometimes network issues hamper deployment of projects.

    Advice to Management

    Continue listening to your staff - you're doing a great job. Thanks for helping to maintain the work/life balance especially when there are difficult projects being worked on.

    Pros

    SCF is a good company. Many of the employees were employed with SCF when it was know as the State Compensation Fund of Arizona, which was a state of Arizona employer. However, the company is now a private employer. However, many of the employees lack urgency and are resistant to change.

    Cons

    Low pay. Mandatory participation in the state retirement plan. Lack of opportunities. Limited to only one line of insurance. Poor training.

    Advice to Management

    Training and development needs to be improve and provide hands-on training programs to employees. Additionally, employees need to be encourage to develop professionally.

    Pros

    Benefits are better than other companies. People are very nice and considerate. Flexible schedules and lots of time off. Employees are highly regarded.

    Cons

    No pension options are allowed. You must contribute. This can be a hardship.

    Advice to Management

    Be open to suggestions from employees and allow ideas to flow in.

    Pros

    Good benefits, self-insured, great wellness program. Mostly happy people there.

    Cons

    Antiquated IT systems as well as purchasing procedures. Still has some of the 'old boys network' leftover from the 50s & 60s. You will do well if you are not a support person. These folks are not recognized for their contributions as they should be.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your support people...they are your backbone.
