Claims Technician (Former Employee) – Freeport, ME – 19 September 2017
This company works with some great clientele, but the staff (specifically mangers/supervisors) are cut throat and "do as I say not as I do people" If it was to be graded on compensation and benefits alone I would have scored higher.
Temporary Claims Representative (Former Employee) – Hunt Valley, MD – 20 September 2017
Sedgwick CMS was a great place to work. This company provided me with a temporary position while another colleague was out of the office on maternity leave. The management staff was very helpful and appreciative of my assistance. This company is forever growing and changing and allowed for me to grow in my professional career.
the ceo came to visit our office and told us how competitive we are salray wise and how they value their employees. a week later i got an offer at another company and they made no effort to retain me even though one of the biggest clients specifically asked for me to remain on their team.
Sedgwick has a wonderful computer system, but places all of its emphasis on audit numbers as opposed to actually investigating and handling claims. Poor work life balance, give adjusters many more claims than what guidelines say is norm.
Senior Claims Examiner (Former Employee) – Oakland, CA – 18 September 2017
I enjoyed the people and the culture at Sedgwick. They had a very good in-house training seminars and rewarded it's employees with spot bonuses and days off work. It was an account driven atmosphere where the adjusters met with the clients often. There was a very strong client building relationship.
Disability Representative, SR, Comcast (Former Employee) – Dubuque, IA – 14 September 2017
Over worked, low compensation, poor management. Room for advancement, but often positions are filled without being posted. Management generally knows little about the job performed by the colleagues they are supervising
Scan prep (Former Employee) – Lexington, KY – 14 September 2017
It really just wasn't a place for me. The hours are always crazy, they say you work to clear desk and then make you stay later doing others work, literally zero liniance on time and will point you and write you up for even 1 minute late clocking in or from breaks. You sit in a chair all day with the overlord right down your back. Get spoken too like a lazy child while the supervisors do nothing but complain. The only good thing about the job was I got to wear headphones, otherwise I'd have gone crazy listening to the gossip and complaining and putter patter of keyboards for an unknown amount of time till they said we could leave.
Customer Service Rep I (Former Employee) – Memphis, TN – 14 September 2017
This was a great place to work at when I was first hired, It was laid back and people really enjoyed coming to work, then it became more intense and demanding and people started leaving or getting fired, you never knew what day would be the last and nothing was guaranteed
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Memphis, TN – 13 September 2017
This job has a very high turn over rate. The position requires that you have the ability to multitask very quickly. It's very difficult to get your shift changed or schedule adjusted. The pay is not that great for a single parent with a family.
Great people here, lots of diversity, opportunity to use skills in creative vs dictated ways. Very colleague oriented. Great organization for people coming out of college and offers growth opportunities.
Okay place to work if you don't want a work/life balance
Claims Examiner (Current Employee) – Portland, OR – 12 September 2017
I do like this company, but with the client and employer requirements, it's difficult to have a work/life balance. They do have an excellent PTO option when first starting. Your work week is only 37.50 hours, however, it is typical to work 60+ hours with no compensation over the 37.50 hours because of the company and client requirements. The caseloads are high.
PTO is excellent, except you have to take any sick time from your PTO. Benefits are less than desirable, although you have several tears to choose from. In order to get paid your worth, you will have to leave the company to make more and then come back.
There is not much opportunity for advancement. You cannot transfer to a different team if within the same level you're moving from. There is no lateral transfers.
Depending on the team you work on, management can be great or not so great. Micromanagement is an issue.
Disability Representative (Current Employee) – Plano, TX – 9 September 2017
The company is a great company that does everything possible to please the client, which is also a problem. Sometimes clients need to be told no, especially when it is destroying the morale of your employees. A company can only give so much until it becomes ridiculous.
Disability Claims Examiner (Former Employee) – West Hills, CA – 8 September 2017
The job of a Disability Examiner is very fast paced. Sedgwick has thousands of clients. The examiner gets audited every month and the examiner has to score 90 or above each audit. This became very stressful as the caseload increased. Time isn't always on your side due to staffing problems and it was very hard to get help from other departments. Sedgwick keeps growing adding more and more new and different types of companies.
