No growth as a claims rep. They start you off as a claims rep 1 and you do the work of a 3 for 12.00 in MIDLAND GA

Report answer

No I saw many employees who had extensive knowledge of the systems given a meanial title and salary while they hired in empty headed managers with no working knowledge of anything meaningful. Your hard work does not pay off.

No, no, and no. You may be subjected to being called demeaning, derogatory names and demoralized on a daily basis. I was employed there a little over 3 years and in that time I had 5 different managers. The last one was by far the most unprofessional. I attempted to transfer out of that department but was told all transfers were "frozen". I was pulled from my desk and sent downtown for a drug screen (which was negative). In the 3 years I was there, the nurse CM's left like pouring water through a sieve, almost 100% three separate times! I would definitely tell anyone considering employment here to run away from this company! I have never been exposed to this type of unprofessional behavior/environment in all my years (25+) as a case manager. Oh, one more item of interest: even though I was hired as a case manager after about 1 year we were told we were no longer "case managers", instead we were to refer to ourselves as "call center attendants".

Not everyone is treated fairly, and there is not growth potential. There may be some flexibility depending on who your Manager is. The training, and overall lack of communication cancels out any benefits the job may offer. Do yourself a favor, and stay away!

No everyone is definitely NOT treated fairly. Depends on who the management likes versus experience, punctuality, etc. They SAY there is growth potential but beat you down if you mention that you would like to try for another position. Depends what you mean by flexibility? Are there different shifts YES, is it easy to get different hours...NO!

No everyone is not treated fairly its very bias a lot of hear say so you must be careful who you speak with or it may cost you your job. However benefits are descent and the advancement is available but it depends on who you know.

There is great flexibility in the schedule as a claims processor. we can work flexible start times and OT is often mandatory, which you can work a longer day M-F or do the OT on a Saturday if the office is open with a supervisor in house-or if you have good production they offer a work at home program which allows even more flexibility in the schedule, depending on your position and your manager. Lots of growth potential if you are willing to acquire the neccessary skills. They have great resources for advancing your career on the clock and off the clock. Great CFA program with ample college reeimbursement for full time employees also. Fair treatment is a company policy like most corporations, it says it in black and white, but it all depends on the people above you sometimes in my experience. There are bad managers at most jobs, same here. If you have a good manager who truly cares about the team effort-it is a great environment to work in and I have experienced both sides in 6 years of working here.

Theirs plenty of favoritism. You try to get assistance from managers..they will ignore your emails and IM requests like its nothing. Most managers are rude and cold. If you get lucky and get a good manager...try to stick to that team. Most managers at Anthem in VA. Are the worse!

No, as others have noted, some managers have their favorites and when this is brought to the attention of HR, it is found as "not substantiated" or some other such term to brush it away. I have been a nurse for almost 30 years in a variety of settings and have applied to several in-house positions but remain with an unethical, unprofessional manager, I guess it is because no one else sees my experience as valuable.
