Pleasant physical conditions but little training
Anonymous (Former Employee), MiamiFebruary 13, 2015
Pros: very nice work space
Cons: training and logging in & out every time you have to leave your desk, even to go to the bathroom.
The training for care management is lacking in consistency and what is expected across the board for the department. Nepotism is the rule of thumb for this company. It has the makings of a successful company if they put in good training procedures and fairness with the employees. Most coworkers were very nice, only very few were not.
The hardest part of the job was being put out to work with so little training.
The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to connect with the members of the health plan that were so appreciative of any help you could give them.

solve them all. You get to know people from all walks of life and their
family The hardest part of the job is losing one of them.But all in all I enjoyed my job.

It is a great company to work for.
CAREGIVER (Former Employee), Harrison, ARSeptember 4, 2013
Independent Living, Inc. is a great program. It is set up to where it helps elderly. A typical day at work is a day spent helping others in assisting them to work as independent as possible. I learned great things from Independent Living, Inc. They have plenty of training that they provide you with. Management is very professional, and they put their clients first. There really is no hard part of the job. The most enjoyable part is going through everyday and assisting others in everyday tasks.
