Tell me more! You're the only person I've come across that has worked there.
They gave me an idea of what the pay would be and I was surprised at how low it was. Are there opportunities to move up and does the pay increase as you stay there longer?
Also, what is the atmosphere like--is it pretty laid back or more corporate-like?
I know the job I applied for entails a lot of phone work, but other than that don't really know anything. I'm concerned about becoming bored pretty quickly.
The opportunities to move up are not desirable. I wouldn't do management there for a 6 fig. salary. They are 50-100% in-office.
The pay does increase nominally with time, but not as well as Humana's pay structure, from what I hear. Plus, your group works on contract with national employers (your patients are their employees). If the employer doesn't renew their contract, you are at risk for being laid off and let go.
It is a moderately laid-back corporate environment, depending on who your manager is. I was blessed with a very laid back & flexible mgr (as long as you got your work done), but there are some that are micromanagers to the nth degree there.
I didn't get bored at all. I had about 350 clients I was working with, and I really enjoyed interacting with them, and helping them to improve their outcomes. It was actually pretty rewarding work. I did feel a bit isolated working from home, but I kept Allnurses on my laptop, and socialized here between patients. ;-)
I was offered the same pay I was making at the bedside, so I was satisfied with that.
I hope this helps.
