I was very excited about the job until I realized that I was the only person doing the job, which meant I had no assistance. My manager was a micro-manager which was extremely stressful and her expectations were unobtainable.
Enjoyed my job, however management is something to be desired.
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – El Paso, TX – May 8, 2017
I learned a new product and how to educate others on that new product. People I worked with are well educated themselves and know what to do. Management however can be something to be desired as they are the one part that made the job un-enjoyable. The most enjoyable part of the job was learning something new, who doesn't like to learn new things. First call center I ever worked in and it was a good experience for me.

They forced my wife to quite after we had our baby, during her pregnancy they didn't support her, over worked her, didn't give her the time and place of work support a pregnant employee deserved as a spouse not the place for your loved one to work for, after we lost our baby my wife returned back to work and they didn't welcome her back they forced her to quite

Very competitive salary great work environment. On-boarding was easy despite management thinking that it would be rough do to lack of training. Hardest part of the job is repetitive nature. The people are fantastic
Data Integration Engineer (Former Employee) – Mequon, WI – April 13, 2017
I was a contractor, and so was hired for a specific period for a specific purpose. The purpose was a major conversion and import of data, specifically insurance data, and thus it was a visible and high stress task. Overall, the team members were very good, and our manager was also good. However, the manager of the project and the manager our manager reported to did not have adequate project management skills, which made the task that much more difficult. Too, there was almost no training provided except by people on the team who had been there only a few more weeks than I. The atmosphere during the course of the conversion became toxic with much blame casting; it may be relevant to know that the manager I worked for subsequently left after my contract ended and I was let go.
Company will offer you more money than what you where making just to get you in the door.

Run the other way! Unless you want to work in a sweat shop. Lots of hours and no work life balance. Just imagine working for a company manager and you can hear the boss walking down the hall in her stilettos and everyone runs to there cubical and puts there head down like they are busy! You can not socilize because if you do you are written up for that until they get you out the door.
Offers more money than previous job to get you in the door.
IT Technician (Current Employee) – Mequon, WI – February 16, 2017
It feels like everyone working here is miserable, because they'd prefer to be someplace else. Since there's no easy escape, management seems to know this and this gives them an excuse to treat employees how ever they want. This company will look you in the eyes, tell you respect is a core value, and anything less will not be tolerated. I've witnessed our VP yell at my immediate manager for reasons that were not his fault. Employees outside of your immediate team will expect you to drop everything you're doing to help them immediately, if we can't, we get told on. Other managers will also talk down to you if you try to understand their request.
There’s also an attitude of “Figure out who to blame” at our location. Instead of fixing an issue, fingers are pointed at everyone involved. They feel it’s more important to figure out who did what, reprimanded them, yell at them, than it is to really find a fix for the issue.
My entire team has had our jobs directly threatened by the CEO due to mistakes. At every other company I've been in, if we make a mistake, we review and learn from it. At this company, I really feel like any mistake may be my last. If I'm lucky to get off with a hand slap, I wonder what will happen next time and if they'll ever yell.
Project management is a joke. We've taken on a major government contract and there was no project plan or deadline provided to the people involved. Everything we did, we accomplished at the last minute. There are also issues with the data that no one can seem to resolve, this has led to many unpaid claims.
HR is a joke.more... There's been yelling matches in the conference room right next to HR's office. The walls are paper thin, yet somehow HR seems to have no knowledge of these events.less
Free coffee and tea. decent commute, work life balance is ok if you're not on call, immediate management is great but can depend on your manager, close working relationship with direct teammates, Good place to learn about Claims and Financial payments
no respect, attitude of figure out who to blame then fix the issue, Project management is horrible, Cross team interactions are horrible
Data Engineer, Product Support (Former Employee) – Mequon, WI – January 13, 2017
WageWorks was a fantastic place for me to work [I left the company due to my husband's relocation]. The company's atmosphere is very friendly; people are kind, helpful and supportive. I enjoyed every minute of it. I would certainly recommend this company as a great place to work!
Operations Specialist (Current Employee) – Tempe, AZ – December 17, 2016
Overall, WageWorks is an average company to work for. The salary, job advancement, and corporate culture are all similar to companies I've worked for in the past. My immediate managers are great, the upper level management leaves something to be desired.
Entry level jobs. Company going through a lot of changes. Work load is very uneven. Pay is decent but never accept their 1st, 2nd or 3rd offer when being offered the job. they start very low and will tell you its the max but its really not.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Tempe, AZ – December 5, 2016
If you are seasonal they give you an almost impossible points system to live by. 10 points and you are gone. No matter what. They would not give me time off to go get married. The work is easy and it does feel really good to help people on the calls. However the calculated efficiency with which they fire people left and right reminds me of the book 1984.
Really fun people to work around. Your expectations are very well communicated and organized.
Employee (Current Employee) – Irving, TX – November 11, 2016
Team that I work on is great. Company is not consistent with processes or policies, pay is low, benefits are not good and we can't work from home anymore. I don't know how to describe the company since we were bought by Wageworks.
