    Fast Paced company

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsPlenty of challenges and opportunities in this fast paced company. Company is working to unify its culture. People are great to work with and many standards/processes are well defined.

    ConsMany changes in healthcare due to government regulations. This sometime causes long hours and changing deadlines.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to lead in Healthcare Innovation. Continue to work on unifying the culture.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Individual Sales Rep, Medicare NJ

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat Management team, base salary and benefits, flexible life balance during the slow season

    ConsMore ideal year round for a bilingual candidate which I am not. My territory was moved due to where I reside, not due to my success in the area I was working. The company does not generate leads for inhouse reps anymore. The most successful reps get leads from other companies or buy leads lists

    Great company for work-life balance

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Charlotte, NC

    ProsI enjoy being able to work from home from time to time. If you consistently go beyond the scope of duty, there are opportunities for small bonuses. Management is clear about their expectations and also understanding of life outside of work.

    ConsThere have been several reorganizations and layoffs during the past couple of years. As with any large corporation, there can sometimes be too many hoops to jump through in order to get things accomplished.

    Nice place to work, pay is average but good working environment

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Honolulu, HI

    ProsNo state holidays but generous paid time off allowances. Management are nice though a little disorganized. Work is challenging but they do consider work life balance. They truly care for their members and are not greedy.

    ConsHealth benefits are supposedly not good but I think they're okay. People are not held accountable for actions making progress slow. Pay raises are infrequent and low. Work gets piled on capable employees. Burn-out seems common.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire more staff, especially efficient ones. Make people accountable to promote efficiency. Assess and divvy employee work loads to prevent burn-outs and frequent employee turn-overs.

    ProsFlexibility, ability to work at home and generous bonuses and raises. Managers and senior leadership is focused on work-life balance. Opportunities for advancement are available it you want to be in a management role.

    ConsBenefits are lacking as far as medical insurance. Difficult to change positions without involving HR. No real intellectual stimulation.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDecrease micro-management and allow nurses to move to other areas of interest without having to involve HR.

    Good employer...

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsWork to Life Balance is high. Leadership in select depts. will always have your back

    ConsSalary increase is very low once you are inside the company. Very high expectations- work you very hard. Some leadership is quick to throw you under the bus.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAll about the bottom dollar- they need to reward their employees rather than cutting training, bonuses, etc...

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
