    Pros

    The RE/ISE associates are fantastic to work with...each bringing a different approach to the same job. The RE/ISE managers are good leaders when they are allowed to "manage" their teams and not on countless phone meetings or have stuff pawned off on them from top 3. The wellness aspect of Humana is second to none!!

    Cons

    Top directors sit in their office all day and delegate duties to their managers. Besides counting phone calls, 99% of employees have no idea what they do all day besides micromanage the employees. Phone call requirements are beyond outdated in a company that promotes technology based apps.....all except the NSO...gotta continue to make worthless calls to make quota. Top 3 managers are protected by the "Boys Club" network with upper level management in Green Bay and Louisville. Call volumes are celebrated more than productive sales....SAD.

    Advice to Management

    Come to grips with updated communications that our agents want. Let the ISE/RE managers manage their teams and leave your office once in awhile and look like you are doing something. Quit constantly harping on call volumes.

    Humana is a dollar driven company that succeeds on the backs of their employees and members.

    Pros

    Work from Home advantage was the best benefit of working for this company, and the ability to work while exploring different regions of the country.

    Cons

    Management style is top heavy, earning high salaries, and raises which are not passed down the line to the employees. There is no cost of living or annual raises, and little recognition for a job well done. Their Customer Service needs a vast overhaul - very frustrating for the members - but these concerns are not addressed. Directives from the Company are unrealistic, and are constantly changing. Their focus is on growth of the company by leaps and bounds, but do not hire/support the Teams that are required to fulfill these goals - hence, more and more work/expectations are piled on the workers, with no end in sight and no financial rewards for meeting these expectations. Additionally - the computer programs being used often fail causing loss of work time, but all work expectations remain. It is expected that the employee will work 50-60+ hours per week, including weekends to "meet business needs". This results in high level of stress and burnout - and less member interaction to meet quotas.

    Advice to Management

    Start rewarding your employees, start listening to their suggestions and act on these suggestions! Reward your employees with advancement opportunities within the company - stop placing barriers!

    Pros

    The kitchen in the cooperate tower has great healthy food at a great price. The gym memberships are also a great value if you use them. It's a decent job if you don't value your life or what you do for a living.

    Cons

    It seemed to me that most people working at Humana spent 80% of their day covering their rear end and 20% working. It was amazing the lengths people went to in order to not be responsible for anything. And as such, if you needed help from any other department at Humana, it was like pulling teeth to get it done. A couple times while I was there I asked another team to do something and heard back a year and a half later when it started showing bad on their automated reports.
    And a word to the wize... they will try to screw you out of some money in your offer letter. Check the math, it's always wrong.

  6. From a software development perspective, Humana has significant technical debt and self-imposed regulatory impediments.

    Pros

    Deep pockets and strong growth
    Caring, progressive atmosphere
    Strong leadership

    Cons

    Innovation at Humana is next to impossible, due to backwards security policies
    Everything IT related moves very slowly
    The health benefits are not right for everyone, they are high-deductible plans which are not well understood by providers in the Boston area

    Advice to Management

    IT does not have to be a monolithic, monstrous entity with a one-size fits all security policy. Think about utilizing smaller agile IT units and apply appropriate security policies for each.

    Not for go-getters. If you're happy being stagnant then this is the place for you.

    Pros

    Company Benefits, location, comfortable work accomodations.

    Cons

    Salary, Opportunities for growth, Development of talent

    Advice to Management

    Promotions need to be based on actual talent rather than "who you know" or "who's side you're on". If management actually complied with company policy rather than continually making "exceptions" that would be great as well. There are many, many extremely talented individuals being overlooked due to nepotism and preferential treatment.

    Pros

    Good co-workers, PTO is ok - they do not differentiate between new hires with no experience versus new hires with a lot of experience.

    Cons

    I have had good bosses and bad bosses. The problem with the bad ones is they are usually pre-occupied with other things and you are left twisting in the wind. I do not trust the people I work for currently.

    Advice to Management

    Total transparency regarding personnel. Do not hide things from employees.

    lower the favoritism in departments and offer growth for the more qualified individuals rather than use favoritism. Show more concern for your employees to rather than single out employees.

    Great pay and decent benefits

    Cons

    Management shows favoritism and doesn't even try to hide it. Some managers are lazy and just wants to sit behind their desk, acting like they are working so that they can't help you.

    Advice to Management

    Get off of your butts and do some work!
