    Former Employee - "Business Analyst"
    Former Employee - "Business Analyst"

    I worked at HMSA full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - "Analyst" term here at the organization is extremely abused and misunderstood; don't be intimidated by any of the job postings as the work is easy.
    - Upper management views statistics as magic. Just throw a bunch of graphs and basic statistical terms. Don't talk about anything too advanced or else you'll bruise the leaderships' ego - they like to believe that they're carrying the organization.

    Cons

    - Undergoing huge attrition of staff; huge turnover and forced "retirement"
    - Leadership relies little on strategic thinking, and more on arrogance.
    - Co-workers boast about self-worth, but are quick to delegate work to others.
    - Most of its leadership is newly staffed and posses very little understanding of health care; only concerned about chasing dollars - even if it means taking money back from providers who have delivered actual service.
    - Poor compensation as the organization is currently reporting multiple quarterly losses; leadership is concerned about their own raises.
    - Organization has ran on a "too big to fail" platform for too long; now it is desperately trying to figure out how to stop hemorrhaging of its dollars, but most of its leadership and employees lack the ability to figure this out.
    - Staff morale is extremely low.
    - Expect your job to be contracted externally in a couple of years as management continues to slowly realize that most of their staffed workers do not posses the minimum requirements to do their jobs proficiently.
    - The "it's a business: we have to work quickly" argument gets thrown out a lot when defending poor quality work. Consequently, physicians and hospitals are starting to learn that they're being scored unfairly or inaccurately. I have witnessed analysts become scapegoats after being responsible for "developing" shabby requirements.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Please, force retire yourselves.
    - Learn to follow your own values of being "transparent". A lot of staff are currently concerned about their own job security because very little comes out of the top.
    - Please try not to seem so happy in relishing the multi-million dollar top executive floor after just trying to ask the state to approve rate increases on your members.
