    Pros

    - very good salary and benefits
    - high potential if management is changed and true leaders are brought on

    Cons

    - when you compare your salary with how many hours you actually work (versus what's written in the contract), it doesn't look so good anymore
    - no work/life balance
    - ineffective processes
    - management is incapable of making quick decisions, and/or change their mind on a daily basis
    - lack of accountability
    - new processes are not assessed for impact on all stakeholders,
    - lack of employee support from their manager
    - lack of resources to execute on the approved projects
    - reactive organization
    - and so many more

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Become Leaders! listen to your employees: they have so many excellent ideas!

    Pros

    Great co workers who are dedicated and care about doing a great job and keeping members happy. The benefits are great and working from home a huge plus!

    Cons

    Getting upper management to listen to those in the trenches on the front line. We may be in the trenches at the bottom of the food chain but we know our jobs and need to be involved in true focus group sessions in which upper management can truly see how it's done. Anyone can manage a department or company but a smart executive will demonstrate a true desire to listen to those who do the job everyday and will value contributions of those on the front line to improve service to clients and their members. Happy employees will be loyal, work even harder!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees and truly show them how much you appreciate them by listening to them and involve them in certain decision making processes. Show company wide that their contributions were used to improve efficiencies and service! Employee of the quarter nominees are usually higher level but why not recognize employees of the quarter at each site or let site management do at their level to give lower level personnel a chance to shine! Employee rewards program is nice and offers a great selection of items that are really rewarding but takes forever to get anywhere to earn enough points to redeem for anything.
