    Many opportunities to grow and learn in healthcare/medical field. Lots of great people with a wealth of knowledge to cheer you on in you endeavor to succeed in this industry.

    Cons

    Depending on who you work under or with can sometimes make or break your opportunities in healthcare. Sometimes, you will be surprised by what you find out once you are in it. Just keep focused on your goal and find people that really care and are willing to help you succeed and you will be fine.

    Great benefits, decent pay, decent leadership. overall good but, could be better.

    Mar 30, 2022 - Claims Processor 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The benefits (they just expanded some of them which they didn't have before) especially the healthcare options are pretty good. Leadership is pretty good but, could be better.

    Cons

    The base pay isn't that great. The benefits even though they just expanded some of them and added a few new ones, still aren't that great. 4 weeks of 100% paid paternity leave? That's it? And, it has to be used within 6 months of birth? We had our child back in October of last year and I couldn't take off any time as a new father. Almost every other country on the planet gives new parents 6 months to a year of paid paternal leave. They can and should still do better.

    Pros

    Lab colleagues were great and truly a family

    Cons

    Requiring a bachelors degree but only paying $16 hourly does not align. Work life balance is non existent as they don’t post the schedule until the week it’s due.
