IT Software Development Technician (Current Employee) – Dublin, OH – 17 May 2017
The open office environment is great for collaboration and overall, the atmosphere is extremely fun. The people you work with on a day to day basis are great. The only issues I noticed throughout the years is management seems to let great employees go and doesn't seem to fight to keep them around. Once you're hired in, advancement is very difficult beyond your initial level, no matter the level of work you perform.

open office may be a con for some, had to advance upwards
Absence Management Care Team Representative (Former Employee) – New Albany, OH – 16 May 2017
Sedgwick provided me with skills desired however did not provide enough of a work/home life balance. Although when first hired on there was much promise shown, changes have come through management that have stunted my personal growth.
Lots of work to keep you busy so there is lots of job security. The management team is good and very easy ton talk to. Culture is fun, the hardest part of the job is trying to keep up with everything. Most enjoyable part is being able to work together with your team members and know that they are there ton help one another when needed.
Case Management Consultant /Sedgwick CMS (Former Employee) – Lake Mary, FL – 15 May 2017
I worked at this company for over 8 years and could not advance within. Nice people to work with Long hours even though they boast 7.5 hr work days, you are expected to work until your work is done. Good Benefits
Good benefits and friendly co-workers with heavy workload
Advisor (Former Employee) – Memphis, TN – 11 May 2017
Sedgwick is a company that is continuously growing and changing, so it's in a perpetual state of flux. They bring in a lot of contractors with very little corporate experience, and training is "on the job". Most of us with experience have a very heavy workload. The benefits are good and the PTO is great. The work environment is nice and the company culture is ok. Management could use better training in managing employees - many have good technical skills but bad supervisory skills. Not a salary leader, but not bad either. Good place to start a career path and learn.
Pto, flexible, decent company culture
Could use better orientation and training, heavy work load
Excellent benefits and opportunity for advancement

Sedgewick has amazing benefits. The atmosphere is very fast paced with the client that we serve. Sedgewick is a fast growing company that is adding new clients on a regular basis that provides countless opportunities for employees or potential employees.
If you like being micromanaged and handling 160+ caseloads, this is for you.
Claims Examiner (Current Employee) – Baton Rouge, LA – 9 May 2017
Great pay and benefits. 37 hour work week but one never really only works 37 hours. Office culture is ok, people are nice for the most part. Caseloads are ridiculous. QA reviews are impossible. Raises are pretty sad, even if you do have a "good review."
Liability Claims Examiner (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – 5 May 2017
The job is a very fast paced job but the opportunities are all around. The people are great to work with as well as the surrounds. The offices are located in a very nice section of town right off the freeway for easy access.
Claim Examiner (Former Employee) – Rochester, NY – 3 May 2017
Beat up with high caseloads and unattainable goals The better worker you are the more work they give you. Management is horrible all the way up to the CEO. No concept of what the jobs entail. Rely too much on technology and not level of actual experience in the job
There were too many inconsistencies and too much micro management
CUSTOMER CARE ASSOCIATE (Former Employee) – Seven Hills, OH – 3 May 2017
There was very high stress with this job. The needs of the client always took precedent over the overall well being of the employee. Expectations were very unrealistic and you were judged negatively whenever they were not met, which was pretty much all of the time due to factors well beyond your control.
Very little support from management, unrealistic expectations, having to work holidays/24-7
Great place to work! The atmosphere at my office is perfect. Relaxed yet everyone is aware of their responsibilities. If obvious if you don't do your work, because there is no one to hide behind. Your work is your work. I absolutely love my management, from my team lead to my director. Everyone is simple and the expectations are clearly laid out before you so there is no reason to fail unless you are simple not right for the job.
I could not get ahead and my manager thought pay was the answer. but in reality working over 60 hrs a week every week and not ever feeling like you got ahead was frustrating. Expected to travel every week and at the drop of a hat made work/life balance very difficult. Again, things you cannot put a monetary value on.
Scr (Former Employee) – Dubuque, IA – 28 April 2017
Avoid this place! They treat their employees like garbage. This job is very high stress and you're even berated for having to use the bathroom. I had to deal with constant harassment from managers and leads.
Disability Representative (Former Employee) – New Albany, OH – 26 April 2017
I was an employee for 5 years and worked in multiple offices in different positions. Accepting the last promotion was a terrible decision, I transferred to a brand new office, which was opened to accommodate the company's new and largest client to date. Management was clueless, the workload was consistently 200+ Disability and FMLA claims per examiner. We were severely understaffed and instead of hiring, the only "solution" was to pressure employees to work excessive amounts of overtime (some of which was unpaid, as examiners feared discipline for falling behind). I wanted things to improve, but there wasn't a light at the end of the tunnel... so I left the company.
vacation time & decent benefits.
