Reviews

Company Culture

The supervisor was extremely difficult to work for, as the entire department was micromanaged immensely and our actions were CONSTANTLY questioned. However, the company as a whole, as well as the benefits such as 401K, PTO, Health insurance was AMAZING. So sad to it didn't work out for me better.

Support from management

Supervision was not good.

Teamwork

Not alot of people in the department felt comfortable addressing issues as lots of secrets were kept from the Supervisor, and people were looked down on, or as tattletales if they brought up ANY issue.

Freedom to work independently

The supervisor I worked for did NOT trust the employees, and every action was questioned numerous times. It was unsettling.

Overall compensation for your work

Deserved to be paid better for assisting other departments all the time.

Company Image

Loved the company, not the department.

Challenging Work

Our work was challenging, however what was frustrating was being asked to assist other departments with little to no notice or training. Poorly run department with much worse management.

Inclusive / Diverse

the minorities were definitely favored and treated better it seemed like where I worked.

Suggestions for improvement

  • All employees should be treated fairly. People should be ENCOURAGED to go to someone with a problem, and not FEAR the outcome. That is such a shame.

What I like about the company

The company matches their 401K with an enhanced contribution, which is almost double the normal match employers offer for the 1st 3 percent. The PTO is very reasonable, and they also have a gym on site. Many perks of working at this company, as long as the politics don't get in the way of performing your job, and the expectations of EACH employee is EQUAL...no favoritism is being showed.

What I dislike about the company

I disapprove of the way some supervisors bully their employees, and make them question every single move they make. I also did not like the favoritism that was constantly showed between Supervisors and employees, so as to make the other employees feel inadequate. The expectations of certain employees was also way off from what other people were expected to do. That was just ridiculous. The perks of working there, if you are in a happy positive department/ environment, could possibly outweigh the negatives. I did enjoy my time there before we were given a new Supervisor.

Company Culture

There were issues with upper management and there was little support for employees to help them do their job better.

Support from management

Management is not supportive and do not provide their employees with the resources needed to do the job correctly.

Teamwork

The company did not encourage this atmosphere. It was up to individuals to work together.

Internal Communication

Information on the company's successes was shared frequently.

Gender Equality

More women worked at the company than men but men seemed to be promoted faster than women.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Older employees were more likely to be laid off or offered retirement packages to leave.

Career Development

There are training programs available but there is no time given during the workday to complete them and they are not easy to find.

Overall compensation for your work

The company does not pay as much as other comparable companies.

Work-Life Balance

There was little flexibility with scheduling and scheduling off had to be coordinated with the entire unit.

Job Security

There have been layoffs and downsizing many times over the past few years.

Challenging Work

I was an appeals representative and there were no concrete processes to follow which makes the job more difficult.

Inclusive / Diverse

The company was not good at listening to ideas and needs of certain departments until they had to due to being sanctioned, losing money, etc.

Suggestions for improvement

  • There needs to be more focus on policies pertaining to specific jobs and training. The thought process of "less is more" needs to be revisited. Also, a review on employee termination needs to be looked at since the company seemed scared to fire employees

What I like about the company

The company offers good benefits and there are a lot of great people working there.

What I dislike about the company

Management needs to be friendlier to employees and the company as a whole needs to be more flexible with employees.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Cubicles can be difficult at times due to surrounding noise making it difficult to concentrate.

What I like about the company

I have had the opportunity to work with employees in many other departments and have found nearly everyone to be pleasant to work with. The people there have a genuine concern to do what is best for members while keeping an eye on innovation. With being a regional carrier, every member is important.

What I dislike about the company

While there is a desire to innovate, it can sometimes be difficult to implement quickly due to internal red tape.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Work on communicating with employees. Get rid of interdepartmental silos.

What I like about the company

The insurance is very good. The HSA is a great option. There were a lot of perks.

What I dislike about the company

The management team needs to focus on retraining their staff instead of terminating them. There is too much turn around there. Also, there is too much favoritism and lack of communication.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Some managers show favoritism where I really makes the atmosphere hard to work in. Upper management doesn’t want to hear the issues so if you have an issue with your direct manager, you either bite your tongue or go to HR which usually doesn’t help any

What I like about the company

In the 4 years I’ve been promoted twice. Company gives away tickets to many local events which I’ve been fortunate to go to. I’ve had several pay raises & we get a great bonus every year.

What I dislike about the company

There have been large layoffs that happened which affected a lot of my friends. The way it was handled wasn’t quite fair & I just didn’t feel it helped with creating a positive working environment each time

Have been promoted several times with nice increases. Cafe serves great food at fair costs. Win several items and concert experiences. Nice facilities.

What I dislike about the company

Because it’s the corporate location the parking lot is large making the walk into the building longvand time consuming.

What I like about the company

The company truly cares about its employees and offers a great compensation package regarding their insurance and 401K options, employee events and discounts, etc. I truly love this company.

What I dislike about the company

I feel that more is expected of certain employees who are less experienced than seasonal employees, or fairly new employees who struggle to learn new skills. Only downside.
