Friendly but frustrating
Business Operations Administrator (Former Employee), Pittsburgh, PAApril 22, 2014
As a customer service representative, I hoped to help people solve their insurance problems and issues. It was frustrating that the only thing I could do was take their information and pass it along. Customers were frequently displeased with the lack of response, and I was unable to push for more assistance.

More work given than can be reasonably handled
CSR (Former Employee), Greentree, PAAugust 27, 2013
Pros: free healthcare
Cons: no advancement, rotating schedule makes it hard to plan anything outside of work (doctors appts, etc)
I was a Customer Service Representative doing medical and pension benefits for a fluctuating number of clients but the number was always 10+. The company seemed as though it was going to move it's US base to Atlanta, Ga when they opened a call center down there. A significant number of upper level client directors and processing analysts took more secure – more... employment opportunities. The company has only hired a few people here and there to replace the lost directors and analysts. As a result, an unreasonable amount of work is circulated to everyone who is left. A typical day for a CSR is answering 30-50+ phone calls, managing client email boxes (and responding to emails asap), keeping detailed notes of each call, handling emergency updates by sending password encrypted emails to carrier contacts, working to resolve ongoing issues, and keeping track of everything you do because it's very important that you be able to account for 90% of what you do all day if asked to produce such a record. It's an "everything needed to be done yesterday but don't worry you might get a $0.20cents/hour raise next year if you continue to work yourself into the dirt" kind of attitude/atmosphere and not a company I would recommend to anyone. They have promoted CSR's twice in the few years I've been there but really promotions seem to be half based on nepotism and half on talent. – less

Lack of training, poor management,employees and management use drugs
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Atlanta, GAAugust 18, 2013
Pros: the office is located in a nice building
Cons: management is horrible, breaks are short sometimes cancelled, people in the office aren't friendly, favoritism shown to certain employees
This is by far one of the worse call centers I ever had the pleasure of working in, the call center manager has no benefits knowledge and is quick to tell you that "this is not his job", it is very apparent he uses drugs along with several other employees including HR. The so called training consists of a powerpoint (if your so lucky), a few handouts – more... and sitting with other employees for a few days. Benefits analysts were constantly complaining about their jobs as if they did anything to begin with. Other people in the office are not friendly and acted as if we were invading their space. If you are looking for a position where you won't be happy and will dread coming to work everyday...this company is for you...if not, don't waste your brain cells. – less

Too much work and no OT pay
Disability Case Manager (Former Employee), Don Mills, OnFebruary 5, 2013
Pros: telecommute
Cons: workload unreasonable
The job was tele commute which has some benefits. However; the expectations were far too much. the compensation seems great but you put in a lot of hours. The hours you work are not paid for. You need to complete the work or it could become a performance issue. Everyone is in the same boat and struggling to keep up. I have previously done this type – more... of work and never had or since then had any difficulty keeping up. – less

Pros: jean days on friday's
Cons: people talking behind peoples backs and pretending to be their friends
Did daily trades in the morning
Co-workers weren't the best of people, there was so much gossiping about other people. Not the environment I liked
Hardest part was when you have several people at once demanding things from you. Tellin you that it's top priority and that theirs was more important than the others.
The most enjoyable part was I met a lot – more... of friends that I will cherish for the rest of my life. – less
