If you're a healer your companion won't attack what your other group member is attacking unless you direct them to with the attack command (which requires stopping your heals on your group member, selecting the mob, pressing attack, reselecting the group member...), and when that one mob is dead, your companion will forget about the rest of the fight half the time and walk back to you very slowly.

But yeah I've noticed my healing companion is pretty bad at healing me, especially in harder scenarios like flashpoints where you need constant healing. My companion would rather shoot at whatever I'm attacking (even though all his damage dealing abilities have autocast off?) than heal me half the time.

Not to mention the fact that if you don't switch their crowd control off they'll chain cast crowd control abilities on bosses that are, in fact, immune to crowd control instead of doing anything useful like... healing.
