    I have been working at Cambia Health Solutions full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Well capitalized, in an exciting industry (health care), opportunity to work at the nascent stage of startups, downtown location, salary, benefits

    Cons

    Very bureaucratic, conservative, people don't seem all that happy. There are a number of people who are just there for the paycheck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is little strategic vision for the company- there are a lot of good folks that work here, however they have little connection to senior management.

    I worked at Cambia Health Solutions for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I enjoyed working for this company as a claims analyst. When you are new you would just love everything about the job plus the benefits. I especially love the fact that I was able to work remotely from home :)

    Cons

    If you got hire as a claims analyst I advise that you start applying to another department so you can transfer to another department after 1-2 years because they really "eat" you up if you are not meeting the performance requirements. Although I been there more than 3 years with good performance it did not make any difference when they quickly change the performance standards to 98.9% which means you gotta be perfect all the time. So this being said almost every 2 -4 years they replace the older folks with newer employees and the cycle continues.

    I worked at Cambia Health Solutions full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good salary, benefits, but you have to pay to park. Nice cafeteria with interesting food, but seating is limited and uncomfortable. Nice workout gym but you have to pay to use it.

    Cons

    Some managers were okay, mine were not - they didn't allow flex schedules or telecommuting even though company policy allows it. It really varies by group, but mine were petty, vindictive, and micro-managers. If you keep your head down and don't ask questions, you'll do fine. Work environment is not nice, looks like a mental hospital with metal doors that you have to badge in to. Managers get offices by the windows and everyone else has windowless cubes in the center. Each floor has a small break room but not all have a sink, just a table to eat at so most people eat at their desk. It's really top management heavy - everyone is a Director. I had 1 team lead for a team of 2. Rarely met with the Director for our group, they always cancelled 1:1s, never attended group staff mtgs. Bad communication. Glad to be done with it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Implement 360 degree reviews and Employee health surveys. HR told me it's only done by departments if they choose to do so.

    I worked at Cambia Health Solutions as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Their benefits I am sure are great. They have several great departments that you can work with. and learn from. They train you to make sure the job is done correctly every time which is extremely important. The learning experience is great.

    Cons

    I was only with the company a short time and came to realize that I would never get promoted within the company. There is very little communication within the company, often times it took weeks if not more to access to computer programs or data. I spend most of my time asking my manager for more work which ultimately lead to the demise of my job. Also since I was not a full time employee I was not able to apply to other jobs within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication should be better within departments. Software issues need to be resolved. IT, security, and dept. managers need to work together. You need to allow part time employees the chance to apply to other positions within the company based on performance reviews. Also a big pet peeve of mine, letting employees go without advanced warning, it is unprofessional.

    Pros

    Cambia is willing to work with you as an employee which is very helpful, whether you want to work remotely a few days a week or with maternity leave. They also support you financially in many ways and have really great benefits (401k and bonus for example).

    Cons

    As in any company, there is a lot of bureaucracy (depending on the group probably) just because the company is so big. It can get annoying having to check with 3 other departments in order to change something.

    Pros

    Benefits are good. Work/Life balance id ok only if you are assertive.

    Cons

    Most of the people in this company are old time employees. So they try to form an old boys club and then boycott anyone who is a threat to them. Most of the managers don't have the management skill...they just became managers in lieu of their tenure in the company. They do not provide opportunities to grow and do not give proper feedback to improvise on a timely basis. They will just wait and then give all the feedback or rather say let loose their thoughts and opinions in the performance review. They will write anything and everything in a way in which they like...no code or ethics to be followed. In a nut shell they can do whatever they want and manipulate their actions in every possible way. Best thing is that the upper management does not mind all this at all !! If the manager has a grudge or disliking towards you then they will do their best to pull you down.

    Avoid the company !!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not act blind to employee concerns. Follow proper work ethics and provide good management training to the managers and overall promote people who are really worthy and fit to become managers in all respects instead of seniority.

    Pros

    Stable company. Matches charitable donations by 50%. Pockets of excellent people. Doing incredibly innovative things to change healthcare.

    Cons

    Hypocritical values. What's written and displayed are contradictory. Behavior displayed by some executives sets a dysfunctional and dis respective tone through parts of the organization. IT is appalling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open your eyes and be accountable. There are talented people whose work environments are highly dysfunctional making work life stressful and unproductive.

    Pay and benefits were good.

    Cons

    Atmosphere tense, working spaces tiny and loud although many work from home. Technology and software old and outdated and causing problems with the business

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Address the problems of outdated systems head on. Be more innovative and support innovation to fix the problems in the company. Going back to the old ways is not working.
