    Under qualified management.

    Dietary Aid (Current Employee) Elgin, IL

    ProsSteady hours and good people to work with. Things run smoothly usually. They have good time off policies so long as notice is given within reasonable time.

    ConsThe business isn't growing. Much of the building is understaffed so work loads are a little erratic. Supervisors hardly supervise so there is potential for a lot of slacking off.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider hiring more employees to increase quality of service and decrease strain on workers.

    Lost Integrity

    Provider Relations (Former Employee) Baltimore, MD

    ProsSalary & benefits were good, at least until run-up to merger/sale

    ConsDirect supervisor insisted I lie to physicians in order to make a company-made problem go away; senior executives were all so new at the time that they didn't seem to know how to handle the problem when I reported it; direct supervisor also increased meetings, written reports and office hours, increasing salaried team's weekly work hours to approximately 60 hrs/week from the roughly 45-50 we were already working. He was trying to make the department look productive without actually increasing productivity/efficiency

    Advice to Senior Managementmake integrity a priority, at all levels of the company

    Dynamic work environment

    Project Manager (Former Employee) Baltimore, MD

    ProsWhen the company was operating as Bravo Health, the culture was focused on getting a small number of smart people in a room, and finding the solution to the problem. Emphasis on individual contribution.

    ConsBravo Health was acquired in 2008 by HealthSpring, and in 2009 by Cigna. I can't speak to how the culture has changed following the most recent acquistion.

    There is no core value for the company. Different department has different policies

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Baltimore, MD

    ConsNot a nice place to work longer.

    Chronically poor mid-level leadership on the Institutional side.

    Nurse Practitioner (Former Employee) Philadelphia, PA

    ProsThe opportunity to clinically manage and positively impact frail elderly in nursing homes; working with dedicated and professional NP's; some flexibility in schedule.

    ConsMid-level managers who are inept and insecure, more concerned with their own interests than supporting the needs of those they manage. 24/5 and 24/ 7 call responsibility.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake a closer look at your clinical management team. There is a reason why you lose your best and brightest. Make changes.

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

    Don't go there! Highly toxic and siloed. Company bought out, but heard morale is even worse in call center where I was.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Baltimore, MD

    ProsI can't think of any given the level of incompetence in management there. The nice buildings were the only positives, aside from adequate benefits.

    ConsTOXIC. incompetent. Call center staff treated poorly (sweatshop) but were saints under the circumstances, many of them highly knowledgeable and dedicated to serving Medicare/Medicaid beneficiaries despite management.
    Highly siloed with poor communications between departments. I feel badly for the beneficiaries who deserve far better than the management of that company were giving them.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLearn about the Golden Rule and how to apply it to those who work for you. Learn about civility and how other companies have transformed their organizations by demanding it from the top down, and have made a lot more money in the process.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
