Please make it end

They think we’re stupid and naïve to see through the BS of what they’re trying to do. All of the verbal warning threats and write up threats need to end. If you are going to lay us off just do it. I’m sure you’re trying to fire many of us so that we... — read more

Downward spiral

I don't think I exaggerate much if I say that this company is in a downward spiral and that there is almost no hope that things will improve here. Do you remember what CF used to be like? I enjoyed working here. Now I'm ashamed to say that I still... — read more

Coming up on a year at my new job

Decided to check in here and see how things are going and I gotta say, I love the fact that someone from HR/Upper Management keeps commenting on this page. It's wild to me that they haven't wrapped their heads around the concept that the labor... — read more

Time to Unionize?

At what point do we stop letting executive ‘leadership’ push us around? They have taken away benefits that effect tenured employees, first the PTO cap and now the pension freeze. They have favored young employees with new and expanded benefit... — read more

Wake up Board of Directors

Does this narcissistic sociopath of a CEO own you too? If you want to know what our members think about CareFirst, take a gander at the company FB page. Just complaint after complaint after complaint. It's downright embarrassing. You are failing... — read more
