    Pros

    Reasonably good compensation. Most people are nice, smart and ethical.

    Cons

    No career path. Culture is very top-down, reactive. Serious aversion to hearing, let alone responding to bad news.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more transparent. Lose the rampant favoritism. Give credit where it is due.

    Great Experience, but Lots of Wasted Potential

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Cambia Health Solutions full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Well funded, lots of projects to work on, terrific teams/teamwork at worker-bee level, terrific benefits. If you've got the chops and broad interests, there are a lot of places you can move around and feel ownership.

    Cons

    Business side leads/makes decisions for IT division; results in a lot of incongruent solutions and agendas that rarely mesh and further burden IT. Confusing layers of ownership and process at the expense of progress. Upper management disconnected from ground-level realities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Define clear goals to IT, let them propose their own solutions, find agreement, then cease micro-managing them. Also, remind teams that they're on the same side, driving toward the same goal: to get work done, not to throw each other into a quagmire of outmoded processes.

    I have been working at Cambia Health Solutions full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Well capitalized, in an exciting industry (health care), opportunity to work at the nascent stage of startups, downtown location, salary, benefits

    Cons

    Very bureaucratic, conservative, people don't seem all that happy. There are a number of people who are just there for the paycheck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is little strategic vision for the company- there are a lot of good folks that work here, however they have little connection to senior management.

    I worked at Cambia Health Solutions (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I enjoyed working for this company as a claims analyst. When you are new you would just love everything about the job plus the benefits. I especially love the fact that I was able to work remotely from home :)

    Cons

    If you got hire as a claims analyst I advise that you start applying to another department so you can transfer to another department after 1-2 years because they really "eat" you up if you are not meeting the performance requirements. Although I been there more than 3 years with good performance it did not make any difference when they quickly change the performance standards to 98.9% which means you gotta be perfect all the time. So this being said almost every 2 -4 years they replace the older folks with newer employees and the cycle continues.

    I worked at Cambia Health Solutions as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Their benefits I am sure are great. They have several great departments that you can work with. and learn from. They train you to make sure the job is done correctly every time which is extremely important. The learning experience is great.

    Cons

    I was only with the company a short time and came to realize that I would never get promoted within the company. There is very little communication within the company, often times it took weeks if not more to access to computer programs or data. I spend most of my time asking my manager for more work which ultimately lead to the demise of my job. Also since I was not a full time employee I was not able to apply to other jobs within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication should be better within departments. Software issues need to be resolved. IT, security, and dept. managers need to work together. You need to allow part time employees the chance to apply to other positions within the company based on performance reviews. Also a big pet peeve of mine, letting employees go without advanced warning, it is unprofessional.

    Pros

    Access to upper management. ability to work on strategic projects

    Cons

    unable to make decisions. very political. executives not in touch with the majority of the company. unable to delegate. Actuaries run the place but probably should not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    share more data and strategic planning with your employees. walk around more. delegate downward
