There was always something interesting to deal with.
Hospital Security Supervisor (Former Employee), Columbia, MDJanuary 3, 2014
I worked the night shift while employed with this company and with the night came the crazies as they say. I learned how to deal with irate people and psychiatric patients in the appropriate ways. I was one of the managers along with one other that worked that shift. My fellow co-workers trusted in each other and had an open line of communication. The – more... hardest part of my job was dealing with the death that happened frequently in that environment. But being able to make a deference in peoples lives made it all worth while. – less

Great company.
Appeals /Collections Analyst (Current Employee), Columbia, MDNovember 3, 2013
Pros: great benefits
Cons: inflexible schedule, limited options for lateral moves.
Not very well-structured postion. Constant changes. Bottle-necks at front-, and back-end of process frustrates efforts at productivity. Fixes are of low priority in the context of company-wide, post-'software transition' chaos.

Patient Care Technician (Current Employee), Columbia, MDMay 23, 2013
I work 12 hours Night-shift and every third weekend. A typical work day/night consist of performing my duties as a patient care technician to the full extent while providing comforting care to all patients and also, admitting, discharging and sending patients to to and from the Pacu, ER and other units in the hospital. Management and co-workers provided – more... great support and team work when ever needed.The hardest part of the job was seeing someone leave or pass on that you have conected with or has made a great impression on my life. The most enjoyable part of the job is knowing that I can count on my co-workers for their great team work ethic, and knowing that I was abe to make an impression and comfort/console someone in their time of need. – less
