Company reviews
"Awesome people"
Former EmployeeCbo
Great place to work and move up in your career. Love the people i work with and work from home permanently. You will love it here…apply and enjoy working from home

"Terrible Management "
Former EmployeePatient Access Manager
Horrible place to work when you have managers who have their favorites. Very little room for growth, unless management likes you. Very stressful workload, always short staffed because no one stays past 6 months. Very toxic and a unprofessional work environment. I wouldn’t recommend, run, run and keep running. Management gossip to their staff about other staff members.

Former EmployeeDirect Support Professional
Collecting monies is very stressful- The culture is great, but work and life not balanced. The most important thing is $$$$. No training program- Pay is average based on duties .

"Executive Assistant Cardiac Center"
Former EmployeeExecutive Assistant
Within the cardiac center there was poor management, leadership constantly micromanaged & condescended, I felt held back from opportunities and unsupported. There was no empathy towards employees. Poor work life balance.
