Pros: Decent but not great pay
Cons: Extreme micromanagement
Upon my arrival at work, I am trained to call various insurance companies to obtain medical and prescription benefits for an injection specialty drug. I am ordered by the supervisors and managers of the team to open, initial review, fax and closed 6 insurance verification cases daily.
This position as a program specialist has absolutely no structure and a very unstable format. There are some good people there, of course, but the majority of the employees at Covance are part of a clique who are very tight knit and negative with low self esteem.
The hardest part of the job is the not knowing how long it will take you to hold with the payers to obtain the benefits. If you do not close 6 cases daily you are put on a PIP to so call help you improve, but they know they are intending from the very start to fire you anyway for whatever reason.
Covance is also a very homosexual-proactive company who employs many homosexuals of various creeds and colors. This is the only environment where I worked and felt like my hard work would never matter or be enough. Upon termination of my employment, I feel relieved not upset.
Life is too short to be doing a job you are not happy doing. I am so grateful to God for freeing me from the hostile work environment. Please keep these types of environments out of my life totally!!
