    Pros

    All expected features from a well established big company: stability, health insurance, you can plan your life events while working here.

    Cons

    Advancing your career is difficult. If you tried once and did not succeed, the best thing you can do is to reconsider your options.

    Advice to Management

    More appreciation for current employees when hiring for new openings. HR could check the internal resources, you'd be surprised what you find.

    Pros

    Good place to work if you're comfortable with the status quo. Livable wages. Generally very predictable with occasional layoffs. I've made two good friends and five acquaintances I trust in work settings.

    Cons

    I spend most of my time navigating the politics and covering my tender parts. My division is centralizing management functions in one city and inventing new "regional" directorships with authority over the management in the three other states. My career path (along with a many other managers) involves changing cities or divisions.

    Advice to Management

    Give up your insurance lobby job and political aspirations, and focus on our company. Expect more of your VPs in managing department politics.

    If you want to get anywhere you need a degree. The work life balance in my department needs some work.

    Pros

    Most of the people that work there are creative and passionate about the company's values. Which include the motto "members first". Staff and management are both engaged in achieving successful outcomes. Cambia is an incredibly ethical company. The media doesn't paint it that way, but they are very transparent and strive to do "what is right".

    Cons

    They talk a lot about embracing change, agility and being flexible but don't always adhere to that line of thinking. Sometimes when they do make a big change, it isn't well thought out and the employees suffer for it.

    Advice to Management

    Don't panic, take risks but make them educated risks. Do your research. Don't change when you don't need to. Take a breath. When you make a change, make it count.

    Pros

    The benefits are good.
    The people are great.
    Downtown location is perfect.
    The Trellis and Vine have amazing food.

    Cons

    Constant reorganization, downsizing, and outsourcing. It feels like a company on life support.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to plan beyond this month. They are extremely reactive and don't see the train coming until the impact is just about to occur.

  10. After five years, I'm impressed with the loyalty of employees. Some have been with the company over 40 years.
