Pros: co workers, decent pay
Cons: management, time off, benefits, respect
Company is doing well. Pay is decent. Since Wellpoint took over benefits have changed, some for the worse (10% payment on hospital stay, caps on PTO days, slightly decreased PTO hours, increased health insurance payments).
Management is relentless on coding and it is drilled into workers heads constantly. Schedules are overloaded and double booked. – more... Management is promoted with no real credentials, mostly if you have no family and willing to work 10 hours a day. Time off is a hassle to get off. Being late is a no-no or leaving 10 minutes early. There is a sense of fear in most of the staff from management and no one is really rewarded for their dedication, especially the NPs and RDs.
You never feel like someone who holds advanced degrees rather a low wage employee, always being chewed out for doing something wrong.
If you can get past this, it is a good start for people right out of school. They take many new grads so they can mold them into what they want. – less
