Not enough training

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I like the company overall.I do not like the amount of training. I barely had any training and am supposed to answer questions all day long. It's intimidating.

Great place to work

The job is what you put into it. If you care and want to learn you’ll have management ready to give you the resources needed to be successful. Also, upper management isn’t rigid. Everyone’s ready to grow and learn.

Unrealistic expectations

Unrealistic expectations in all roles and all levels. Decent pay but not great . Benefits were ok, but they get cut all the time. Don't plan to have a career but it might be a good stepping stone to another company

Unattainable

Workload is out of control, not enough training, poor management. Would not recommend this role. Other roles in the company are better. Would not suggest this to someone as their "get in the door" job. Suggest Processing Specialist I.

Fast paced environment

They don't give you enough training to do the job you are expected to do and once training is done they send you out to take calls and after training is done you get Quality Review meetings & scores on your calls. what you learn in training gets totally changed once you start taking calls & you feel very overwhelmed and completely un-trained. Pay is good but a lot of turn over - people leaving due to being mis lead as to the job description provided to you in the interview. You are expected to hit a certain quota for the length of your calls which is a ridiculously low amount of time that is impossible to attain. It's very difficult to get any time off for anything you need time off for & if you choose to take the time off anyway that isn't approved you get an occurrence and your only allowed a total of 4 occurrences & they don't fall off for 6 months from the date of when you call in.

Pros

Great pay

Cons

hard to get restroom breaks and any time off needs

Supportive leadership

Felt leadership was supportive. Workload was reasonable. Stress level was never too high. Compensation was fair. Co-workers were great. No real complaints.

They are very fair. You get as much as you put in.

If you want to advance, get raises, promotions, move to the area most appropriate to your abilities, work hard, make a development plan with your boss or mentor, read and improve based on your quarterly reviews, and you can be a great success. They make it like paint by numbers. Just do what they train you to do.. and be nice.

Pros

Everyone is nice. Benefits are great.

Cons

Some people get bored. I didn't, I used extra time to bond with coworkers and work on value added projects.

Extremely professional work environment.

Great environment, lackluster pay and appreciate. It wouldn't be impossible to survive with the position I had, however. The management good and building was absolutely beautiful.

Buenas personas, malas jefaturas, ambiente de estrés y malas prácticas

Empresa me solicitó y renuncié a mi trabajo, al cabo de 10 meses me desvincularon aduciendo que los inversionistas no tenían buena opinion mia. Hasta hoy en dia sigo teniendo contacto con esos inversionistas y ellos me dijeron en su momento que me consideraban un buen profesional

Pros

Seguros médicos

Cons

Empresa con una cultura muy exigente y estresante, no reconocen los contratos

Good work environment

Nice people. Good management team. Three weeks personal time off from the get-go was a huge selling point. 5+ years with the company. Left to raise a famy. Would have stayed otherwise.

Good place to work

Beautiful environment, lots of advancement opportunities. Their employee training is very good. Benefits were great, could be a fun environment most of the time.

Solid overall- nothing great but nothing terrible. It’s corporate. Things move slow

Nice company overall- lots of turnover in claims and the work is demanding and pay is average at best.Good people across the company. Benefits are going away which is making it just another place to work and does not standout from it peers any longer

Good company to work for

Leaders are committed to helping teams improve. Flexible work arrangements are common. The large size can be frustrating. Hard to find the right person to solve a problem

Pros

Flexible work arrangements

Cons

Technology needs updated
