Cons: no longer showcommittment to patiens and employees
Apparently there were some bad guidance within the company for the company to lose millions of dollars and because of that they are no longer dedicated to their patients and their employees . massive lay off over and over and also now when patients call its like calling AT&T or Verizon or Apple no more personalize interaction with patients where the – more... person use to know the patients calling and attend to their needs.

no lunch breaks. high turn over. lack of leadership. no or little potential for advancement. you have to be at 5 places @ once. your day is spent chasing behind clients who does not want to be found. then you get penalized for not finding the clients. your case load is from 25-32. then you get a case every other day. you have to share a work station; – more... even though you have endless paperwork to do. that means if the person you share your computer with is in the office, you either wait until that person is done or ask someone to use their computer. filthy work space.
