Terrible
Data Entry (Former Employee), Augusta, MEJuly 30, 2014
Pros: mon-fri, weekends off
Cons: you can get fired for a stupid reason at any time
The management is HORRIBLE. They time your restroom breaks. Supervisors are very immature and have had no experience as managers. I liked the work but the supervisors out weighed the headache of worried firing. Don't work here!

unprofessional management, prehistoric outdated billing systems
education (Former Employee), Boston, MAFebruary 25, 2014
Pros: two bonuses a year
Cons: terribly unprofessional, and systems used are pre historic and outdated.
the company itself is good it is specific department heads that are the problem. one director is known for using racial terms another is known for bullying her employees and there are several who are known for sleeping with a director. With all this non sense going on on top of it when hr gets reports they act as if the reporting person is at fault – more... in other words when management gets wind that there has been a complainant, they immediately set out to discredit the employee and H.R automatically believes management as if they can never ever be wrong – less

A typical day at work is filing new clients documents. I have learn how to efficiently organize client's files. I enjoy working with my co-workers because they are very friendly and helpful. The hardest part of the job is when clients do not cooperate with the program. I enjoy the idea that PCG is there to help people.

MECare Member Services Team Lead (Current Employee), Augusta, MEAugust 23, 2013
I have learned a great deal about the Medicaid insurance since working for this company as that is what we were sub-contracted to do for the state. My management team is awesome! All of them have been here for 5+ years and the Manager has been here since day one and started out as a Member Service Rep just like myself and worked her way up. My co-workers – more... and reps are great and well trained in customer service skills and we all work very good together, quite a cohesive unit, great team! I have really grown as a person working here and have learned alot from my managers, my team and the people I have helped for the past 5+ years and have also gained more administrative skills. – less

-A typical day at work consisted of intense research into city agency systems in order to find potentially qualified candidates for disability benefits.

-I learned a lot about child welfare and the process of how children enter and leave foster care.

-Management was a rare presence.

-Co-workers were driven and very isolated.

-The hardest part of – more... the job was allocating a substantial amount of children on a monthly basis who would qualify for disability benefits, since the numbers started dwindling.

-The most enjoyable part of the job was being to submit a successful claim that would assist foster children in providing them with much needed additional resources. – less

not for the faint of heart or thin skinned
former employee (Former Employee), Boston, MAJune 20, 2013
Pros: decent annual bonus opportunities
Cons: lack of managerial vision, complete disconnect between sr leadership and the employee base
It's you're typical consulting environment. Old school, no forward thinking, vanilla and the rich stay rich.

Not much room for advancement unless you are on the "consulting" track. Long hours expected. Senior management has been there forever and they do nothing to stay abreast of current best practices.

If you're a high performer, you will feel stifled – more... in this organization. – less
