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

    Pros

    good pay, flexible work/life balance, great culture, forward-thinking executive team, opportunities for advancement

    Cons

    mostly contract-based work, so there can be stress involved with a contract ending, but Telligen does a good job of absorbing individuals into new work (which is actually nice to learn new things and expand your skills!)

    I worked at Telligen full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    competitive salary and yearly bonus

    Cons

    -like MANY other reviews have said the culture at Telligen is negative and toxic
    -focus is on quantity not quality
    -management is out of touch with their employees
    -salaried position in which they discourage breaks (lunch etc.) and encourage working longer hours
    -extremely hard to get days off (vacation time, doctors appointments etc. unless you have FMLA)
    -they LOVE employees who suck up to them & have favorites
    -managers have unprofessional relationships with their favorite employees (boundary issues)
    -employees are given power/authority over their coworkers even when that isn't their job- which creates hostility towards one another
    -Technology is extremely outdated.
    -Very cheap and won't invest in new computers, headsets, splitters etc. in order to do your job
    -system on which you chart on crashes multiple times a day losing all of your charting
    -they say they want young people and want to retain millennials but don't understand the concept of "work-life balance"
    -work environment is "high school like" with clicks, favoritism, dirty looks, and dishonesty
    -not able to work from home due to lack of technology
    -medical insurance is terrible and expensive
    -401k match was changed to employee owner stock
    -if you have more than 3 sick days per YEAR you get an "occurrence" which add up to disciplinary action
    -most nurses & management have been out of practice for 6+ years and giving patients advice that is not evidence based & out of date
    -for nurses NO opportunities to advance due to being such a small company

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, take a management class, be professional.

    Pros

    The pay. They pay stupid well for a stupid job.

    Cons

    They lie about what job you'll actually be doing. Micromanaging. Breaks are highly discouraged. Unethical. People in the wrong positions.

    Advice to Management

    You need to go through training and bring in someone who strategically places people in the right position. Many of you do not belong in management at all.

    Pros

    Great company to be working for. They take care of the employees

    Cons

    The projects are mostly contractual for a limited time period generally varying from 3 to 6 years after which they need to compete and win. If the contract is lost then that specific team could be affected with layoffs. However they try to retain the employees.

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

    Pros

    I was excited to see that from the interview to actually working on the team, what you see is what you get. They are a great group of smart, hard working people that don't take themselves too seriously and will not let anyone on the team fail. I have had nothing but support and prompt and honest feedback from my leader. We have fun and laugh more than I have ever laughed at my previous employers while working hard and getting stuff done. Leadership is completely transparent with our companies revenue goals and actual revenue. Having recently been hired, I felt like royalty going through the recruiting process. They are also very open about our work life balance, they not only say it but they live it. At the previous company I worked for, I felt guilty if I left at 7:00pm or earlier, here you get your work done and can head home to spend time with your family. World class all the way around, I wish I would have found Telligen sooner.

    Cons

    I haven't seen one yet.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing, it's working and is much appreciated!
