    I have been working at Health Alliance Plan of Michigan full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some of the nicest people that you could have the opportunity to work with. Very passionate about their jobs and the work they do.

    Cons

    Slow to adapt to new technologies. And the office politics, at times, makes it a difficult place to work. Lack of consistency from senior management, some develop and promote from within and other don't.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a corporate plan to address retention of valuable employees. Need to become more proactive versus reactive.

    I have been working at Health Alliance Plan of Michigan full-time

    Pros

    Some wonderful people, work is fairly easy, flexible work schedule is a great perk. Adequate number of days off, office culture is fairly easy-going.

    Cons

    Definite lack of leadership. Certain people and departments overrun their authority and can make life difficult. Salary is fair, but raises/bonuses lag behind industry standards. (this is a non-profit, so it's not totally unexpected) Due to budget cuts by parent company, there is an overall feeling of uncertainty.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication at all levels needs to be improved. Employees who finger point and blame others should be corrected rather than encouraged.

    I have been working at Health Alliance Plan of Michigan full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    New CEO is trying to make change. Lots of training for employees and leaders through Henry Ford (parent company). Never a dull moment. Benefits are okay. Good vacation even though some days were just made mandatory.

    Cons

    Senior leaders have their own agendas and it works against the progress of the company. Company is not stable nor did it prepare for Health Care Reform properly. Company expects 60 hour work weeks every week in most departments. Vacation days were reduced.

    Pros

    The compensation was fairly okay.

    Cons

    Engage with the employees to determine where their skills can be better utilized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage transparency and listen to your employees to keep the workplace upbeat. Employees want to be able to trust you and also feel appreciated. The company should also provide a much healthier work/life balance to improve employee morale.

    Keep up the team outings away from the workplace to raise morale. Let people unwind and relax away from the office with the people they spend so much time with. This allows employees to get to know each other more on a personal level.

    Pros

    Opportunities to learn through training and development,

    Cons

    Management didn't actually listen to employee concerns. The HR dept needed a lot of help. Salaries weren't that great and yearly increases were almost non existent. There wasn't too much room for advancement, unless you knew someone.
