Suggestions for improvement

  • I would limit the coachings that are scheduled every month. Basically you end up with a verbal warning whether you do hood or bad

What I like about the company

Job schedule has been very flexible, even for part time. Also benefits for employee and family are great.

What I dislike about the company

For a health care company, they don’t seem to really care about your health.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Not have so much politics be an open part of working there. Keep religion and social issues out of it

What I like about the company

I have had a wonderful time working for my company. I was municipal for 10 years prior and this is actually a far better job. It has a pension paid by the employer, a matched 401k, completely paid for medical insurance program, tuition assistance, employee discounts, and a performance based yearly bonus. I receieved more than i expected my first yearly and it was extremely good. I had never had a bonus before. And there are a ton of opportunities for promotion all over the united states. They have locations every where. I have never been happier with a job before in my life.

What I dislike about the company

The company is extremely liberal so if you have a very religious or conservative outlook you will have to keep it to yourself. There is a lot of transgender and gay rights advocacy. They sponsor gay pride runs and have transgender awareness community events. I have to take the sensitivity training continuously. The overall leadership is all extremely liberal. It is so "inclusive" that you are actually scared to be conservative, so you feel a little discrimination if you don't agree with the politics
