Good health care benefits Company is well-intentioned in trying to improve everything at once
Compensation is well under market average No attention to career growth or skill development Too focused on operational practices to adopt an innovative mindset Company doesn't empower anyone below an AVP position to make a decision Company cannot prioritize its initiatives, resulting in too many efforts being worked on simultaneously by resources that are stretched thin, resulting in none of them being completed with a high level of quality Disconnect between executives and everyone else

- No OfferNegative ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied online. The process took 4+ months – interviewed at HMSA.
It was a very boring behavioral interview. The HR representative who gave the interview was very unprofessional and seemed like he didn't want to be there. The interview lasted about an hour and it seemed to go on and on and on. "Tell me about a time when..." Midway through the interview, I found out that the company did not even have a set hiring date for the position which just meant that they were just interviewing for the sake of interviewing. You should take it as a red flag when the HR department is not very good, it just shows the poor company culture. After about 6 months they finally sent me a rejection email. Obviously I have a better job now, but I was never intended to accept the job offer anyway if they had offered it.
