a freshman mentioned, "People need to hear the truth about UBC. Not everyone's experience is all unicorns and glitter. I know for a fact mine is NOT. I have never felt worse in my entire life. Some of that might be my fault, but I lowkey don't think it is. I wish all of you prospective students the best of luck and use the mental health resources provided on campus cause trust me, YOU'LL NEED THEM. I am 7 months into what I would like to call solitary confinement, with 1 friend, an occasional decent dinner, and a buttload of problems. I've made a lot of bad decisions in my life, but this one tops the cake. I AM TRANSFERRING. May the odds be ever in your favor."
Senior Claims Specialist (Former Employee) says"Poor management, Schedule is not flexible, Great training classes , poor HR and poor workflow.I do not recommend this job for long term opportunities."
Reimbursement Specialist (Current Employee) says"This recent communication is just an example of how employees are treated. Mind you, the email was sent with less than two weeks left in the year. Cons: Benefits, lack of communication, management"
Sr. Eligibility Associate (Current Employee) says"At UBC the stupid succeed. Upper management is threatened by employees that have achieved higher education than themselves. The good ole boys ( and girls) network is alive and well here.And with the job market being what it is this place CAN NOT BE ESCAPED!!!It would be a tolerable place to work if the opportunities for advancement were equal, but unfortunately if you down kiss butt you don't get promotions you deserve. Cons: No real opportunities for advancement"
Customer Service Coordinator (Former Employee) says"Expect you to know what you are doing without proper training. Management knows nothing and then blames you if you follow what they tell you. Just a horrible place to work. Cons: Glad to be out of there"
Sr. Regional Manager (Former Employee) says"In the thirty years I have worked as a registered professional nurse clinician and manager, this is by far the worst work experience I have ever had! I had to resign under duress after only four months. This should have been a wonderful contract, but with this company, it was s nightmare. Stay away, there are more deserving companies for your talent. I feel badly for the incredible staff left behind. Cons: Too numerous to count"
Staffing Coordinator (Former Employee) says"unsafe, on all aspects;; the management does not care about staff safety"
Secrétaire (Former Employee) says"Charge clients high prices for mediocre quality work. They say they listen to employees, but they don't. No job promotion -opportunities. If you aren't a kiss up to management, you're not gonna be lucky. Gender imbalanced managment. Many women. Cons: meetings scheduled outside of core hours, management takes employees for stooges, management not professional"
Supervisor/Manager (Former Employee) says"It doesn't matter how hard you work at this place. What matters is how well you can brown nose senior management. Some employees are highly overworked, while others (that are pets of the executive director) can look at facebook, pinterest and netflix all day long without reprimand. If you are good at kissing butt and baking cakes to leave on his desk, it's a nice place to go hang out and do nothing. But if you are a hard worker with a strong work ethic, you will be rewarded by being assigned other people's unfinished work, while they get promoted for doing nothing. Cons: drama, gossip, favortism, unbalanced employee expectations"
Bilingual Case Specialist (Former Employee) says"When I started working for the company it seemed great but as I settled in I noticed a high level of favoritism and the favorites never completed their jobs but would hand it off to someone else. If that individual could not get the task completed they were held responsible not the person who was assigned to the task originally. Most of those who never completed their task did so by talking about unnecessary and irrelevant things like fashion or going out to party. The ones who actually did their jobs were the ones getting punished. Cons: favoritism"
Senior Reimbursement Specialist (Current Employee) says"Management was horrible"
Preferred Sales Specialist (Former Employee) says"The company separated from Express Scripts and had to start from the ground up. It still seems to be learning how to run a profitable company. They are short resources in many key areas to include HR and IT which made resolving issues extremely difficult."
Training (Former Employee) says"This is a terrible place to work as there is minimal job security as there are lay-offs every couple months. Within a company there should constant communication; however; there is zero communication from senior leadership and they are quick to place blame on others when they do not fulfill their requirements. In my opinion, the president of the company puts his desire for making more money ahead of making decisions for his employees and their professional advancements. Also, the HR team is a joke as they are the most unqualified people I’ve ever met-especially the VP of HR. Her resume does not reflect training, education, knowledge or experience to have her at the VP level. Beware before excepting an offer from this organization!!! Cons: Everything else!!!"
Patient Service Coordinator (Former Employee) says"Management was pretty ignorant of their workers and just pushed people to do things they didn't want to do. Not surprised retention was pretty bad. Also followed typical corporate rules of advancement and hard work was not rewarded by any means."
Work Study Student (Former Employee) says"not very good. bad management. never gonna work there. horrible experience. good thing was employees were nice. good worker but not that good place for first timers"
Cash officer (Former Employee) says"A multi national where team spirit is organised to meet proper objectives.coaching is regular optimization of service. serving more than 160 customers per day. Handling different challenges daily aiming at weekly targets. The most difficult task here is taking care of multiple customer desires at the counters of the bank. The exciting part here is meeting individual and collective objectives. Cons: no job security in the contract"
systems analyst II, UBC IT Desktop Services (Former Employee) says"Great place to work provided you get along with your bosses. If you don't they can, and do, fire for no reason whatsoever. If you run into a bully they give lip-service to anti-bullying but wont' help you."
Laboratory Technician (Former Employee) says"A very good place to work indeed. But if you ever work past 10 years... There will be no opportunities to move up. They will hire the young and inexperienced to manage so they can pay them a low wage. Employees that have been there long term, do not often get the opportunity to learn anything new. Cons: Management"
Accounts Receivable Manager (Former Employee) says"Attended monthly training and updates at corporate in Mankato once a month Cons: Very fast paced"
Forman team leader (Current Employee) says"lacking salary and no pension"
Оператор (Former Employee) says"Из вас выжмут все соки. Разрядов не дают, премий не бывает, потому что план никогда не выполняется. Всё по звонку как на зоне. Ваша квалификация и стаж работы никого не интересует. Могут кинуть на другую работу по 3 раза на день. Находишься в постоянном стрессе. Бытовые условия нормальные. Раздевалка, столовая, туалеты."
