Work/Life Balance was excellent
Ombudsman/Case Coordinator (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – June 27, 2018
Every day brought something a little different. The nature of my job demands that I interact with the general public. The fact that it was a job created by statute, and working in a legal environment, means that there are many opinions and interpretations about the law itself, and the best way to manage/function within that framework.
The workplace culture is very "laid-back". I rarely wore a suit, and when I did, it was only for speaking engagements or when I needed to attend courtroom proceedings. The work-life balance is by far the best. I enjoyed a very flexible schedule for a number of years.
The hardest part of the job was balancing competing interests, and opinions from upper management, as well as those of the practicing attorneys, physicians and their staffs, nurse case managers, insurance adjusters, employers, and well as upset claimants.
No room for growth at the agency i was in
