    Pros

    I have had a number of opportunities to grow during my time at NaviNet. The company generally looks internally first to fill new jobs, and has a good mix of staff that are both long-term and brand new to the company and industry. This creates a good mix of opinions and perspectives. I don't mind free food, a Ping-Pong table, chair massages, and boot camp, and Oh, the product we're building is very interesting as well! CEO has a great connection with employees!

    Cons

    People can get stuck in the way the company "used to be." That has changed in the last year or so - definitely going in the right direction!

    Advice to Management

    Stay consistent and honest. Employees appreciate it!

    Pros

    Pretty relaxed and casual atmosphere at work, but people get the job done. Once a year we take off 3 days to come up with a proof of concept or working code for some innovation in the product, this year at least one of the 30 or so projects the employees dreamed up got funded! A great CEO now after a long string of so-so's.

    Cons

    Company has gone through a couple downsizings/reorganizations and then a restructuring that forced us to sell our stock options. But the company did turn a corner with all that. Quite a lot of legacy code still hanging around.

    Advice to Management

    How about stock options for other than the top executives?

    Pros

    Great, fun people, all working towards the same objectives. Senior management encourages work hard, play plenty and fit in your regular life, too. Everyone is super busy, but working on good stuff. Not all the most exciting, but part of getting us the base we need to accelerate the growth of the whole company. Lots of opportunity to learn and grow if you want to lean forward and be part of the change & learning.

    Cons

    Probably trying to do too much at once. We need to get better at picking most critical next. We'll do it all, just need to stretch it out some. Still sorting out roles as org changes. Need folks to keep stepping up and into bigger ownership stake.

    Advice to Management

    Help your management team step up, so their folks can shine and they can learn to be leaders not doers.

    Pros

    Leadership is very energized about what the future holds and I think they do a good job of rallying the troops. There are monthly company-wide meetings where the execs and other leaders talk about what's being achieved, which helps each part of the organization stay connected and aware of how we're all contributing to the bigger picture. The message makes you feel like you're "in it together." Leaders are very human- they value work/life balance and are accessible and approachable. There's a lot of work- it's a lean organization so everyone carries a heavy load. If you're good at balancing and prioritizing and want to see your work's impact fast- this is a great and very fulfilling place to be. You're almost never the smartest person in the room which means there's constant opportunity to learn and grow (growth isn't always in the form of title.)

    Cons

    There's a lot of change happening- some of it's fast, some of it's slow. You have to be versatile and willing to put the team first to make it work and not everyone is committed to this. Leaders are really good at lifting up their own organizations but they could improve going to bat for their colleagues' teams.

    Advice to Management

    Transparency is key. We're smart people- the more we know and understand why we're going in a certain direction, the more engaged and committed we are to reaching the goal.

    Pros

    The benefits and compensation here can be above average. The paternity/adoption leave is a huge plus and rather unique among the players in this space. The company clearly cares about its employees - the leadership team knows that they need to attract and retain top talent as NaviNet reshapes itself and its offerings. The culture is great - the newer folks bring a fun energy to the office and most of the veterans are very knowledgeable and clearly industry pros willing to share their experience with others.

    Cons

    Many new hires don't have strong healthcare expertise/background and come from other industries (financial, etc.). You often have to bring people up to speed on basic healthcare industry information (how things are done, why, etc.) in order to have a meaningful conversation. A handful of veteran employees are clinging to politics, the old ways of doing things, and resisting the evolution necessary to take NaviNet to the next level. There are management changes and shuffling of people a bit more often than I'd like to see. An employee's career path/growth opportunities once inside NaviNet can be unclear.

    Pros

    Many opportunities to take part in different types of training (leadership, professional). Great culture! True team environment, everyone willing to pitch in and share knowledge. Flexible schedule as needed as long as work gets done. Pizza Fridays, Birthday cupcakes :).

    Cons

    Vacation - Can carry over 40 hours to the next year, everything else is use it or loose it.

    Pros

    1. People are very willing to help 2. Off the Grid .. 2 day workshop to bring in new ideas 3. Use of cutting edge technology 4. Good Location .. 5 mins walk from the Train Station , 1 min from the bus stop 5. Work Life Balance 6. A lot of extracurricular activities including chair massage and chair yoga 7. Pizza Lunch Fridays and Beer nite Fridays 8. Culture and Vision is amazing. Best I have seen in my entire working career. 9. Exposure to a lot of free training sessions 10. Very Very communicative about what is going on , new products etc.

    Cons

    Training Sucks.. They do not invest in training unless it is from a college. Sometimes you get stuck with legacy that can bring down the Morale. Only upper management get all the accolades and the worker bees are left with nothing

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and the communication! Take time to go deeper instead of just scratching the surface CEO needs to meet every individual and get to know their names on a more personal level .... at least once.

    Pros

    I may not be the best judge since I only worked a short contract there. The pay was excellent with flexible working hours and a very knowledgeable staff. The company is changing it's business model and seems to have a good plan for the future. Lots of perks like free pizza and beer Fridays.

    Cons

    They are changing their business model which means some people may be stuck supporting dead end legacy code until it is finally retired.

    Advice to Management

    none
