Company reviews
"Seek employment elsewhere"
Former Employee
Micro managed, management has favorites and make it very uncomfortable on daily basis. Pay extremely low compared to what competitors pay. Doesnt follow ADA.

"Committed to Customer Service"
Former EmployeeRecruiter
I had a great career at CCI. While I was there, I was able to contribute directly to the overall culture and success of the company. I loved working there and only left because my position was eliminated in 2015 due to a departmental reorganization. However, that re-org launched me into a position that I would not have had if I had stayed.... things do happen as they are supposed to! I will always have fond memories of my years at CCI.

"Great place to work"
Current EmployeeDirector of Operations
ConnectiCare has a local feel that has great internal strength. The workplace culture continues to improve. Everyone works across the organization and remains focused on the members experience. It will be important to swiftly identify leaders who aren't leading with culture/engagement in mind and help to raise/train or remove to avoid impact to a high performing team.

"Family doesn’t matter"
Former EmployeeCustomer Service Representative
It was great in the beginning but once I was in the call center the rules change they told me during the interview not to worry that they were a company that believe family comes first and I let them know I was a single father and my daughter was my priority and they told me no problem they would understand if I she was sick and I had to leave to pick her up but they didn’t it was a lie just to get me to sign with them
