    I have been working at Inovalon full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Pay, the people. The company goes out of its way to have moral boosters. As a member of the lead Quality Department, I have seen the time and effort that goes into helping those who need it. When I left the company (worst mistake I have made) they welcomed me back with open arms. People are promoted through hard work. I started as a remote reviewer then became a Lead. I did this with hard work and dedication. If you are thinking of applying for this company, work hard, stay positive, take pride and you will succeed!

    Cons

    The work is hard. It is not for everyone. But that's why they call it WORK. That's why they pay us to do it. It honestly comes down to if you can do the job correctly or not. But if you ask for help and work hard to get it right, it will just click.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The only suggestion I have is for upper management to interact more with the reviewers. We know you are busy, but a quick phone call or email (not a mass email) telling them they are doing a good job would mean a lot.

    I worked at Inovalon full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    You will work hard, but learn a lot. This place really launched my career and I am grateful for that. It's great to be part of a team that is driven and is considered to be the best in the industry. I had the best co-workers and a fabulous manager. I can't speak for others on glassdoor, but my managers (VP level and C-level) always cared about my career growth and were understanding about my work life balance when I needed it. If you have a strong passion to do well at your job you will do well here.

    Cons

    You put in a lot of hours. The benefits could be better. There is a lot of turn over which can be frustrating when trying to get projects done. Approval processes can be painfully long. I always told the people I interviewed to work at Inovalon that you had to be a Type A personality. If you aren't driven to succeed in your career this is not the place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think upper management is on the right track. They are making huge strides to improve the culture for their employees. The only advice would be to continue to pay attention to how hard your teams are working and reward them when it's earned.

    I have been working at Inovalon full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Flexibility of work hours; challenging work environment that pushes you to perform your best; leadership team is responsive and knowledgeable; competitive benefits; friendly work place with great co-workers; go-getter atmosphere where you're often free to run with new ideas

    Cons

    Can easily be overworked during rush times, often putting in 10+ hours a day; high turnover rate, higher in the reviewer positions but still pretty high in management; new-school technology company with an old-school mindset (formal business attire everyday); inconsistent with rules across company

    Pros

    Great potential in an industry that is busting out! Lots of potential in the newer leadership brought in to help mature the company. Good pay, good benefits and lots of potential for growth and development.

    Cons

    Fast paced environment, but that could be a "pro" also. If you like moving at lightning speed, and adapting to the evolving technology and healthcare industries, this is the place for you!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really listen to your employees because they care and are invested.

    I worked at Inovalon full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    All personal were extremely helpful, and seem to genuinely care about any concerns you have.

    Cons

    Frequent testing although this is also good for personal enrichment. The ongoing testing keeps you from meeting productivity, which you have to meet every day no matter what else is going on. Too many mandatory meetings. Often times with repeated information

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A little more patience with repeated questions, sometimes you are made to feel dumb.
    Don't delay in your response to questions.
    Change is good but when you have many immediate updates or changes almost every day it becomes a challenge to keep up with what is the latest update and if you err because of a change you missed it counts against you.

    I have been working at Inovalon full-time

    Pros

    Growing private company in a great location. Inovalon leaders listen to feedback and are willing to evolve and make changes as the Company scales for the future. Inovalon values its high performers and provides development opportunities. The Company is increasing its investment in and dedication to a highly diversified workforce. The technology and opportunities are interesting and exciting.

    Cons

    Like most technology companies, it's a fast-paced environment, not necessarily an 8 hour day every day.

    I have been working at Inovalon full-time

    Pros

    With the changes in the health care industry, it is exciting to work for an organization at the heart of the transformation. Many opportunities are available for employees in the early stages of their careers with high visibility to senior management.

    Cons

    Benefits are not the best and many internal operations are implemented like a small organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More transparency to all employees - communications end at manager level.
