    Pros

    This is a smallish health plan serving Medi-cal and Medicare that has been growing. Caring managers. Focus on member care and satisfaction.

    Cons

    Worst MIS department imaginable, plans and makes decisions without advice, input, or approval of business units, resulting in numerous inefficient workarounds.


  3. Unhappy, unfriendly management; no regard for employee satisfaction

    Pros

    Attempting to help people, employee sponsored potlucks, on-site gym run by property management company, good lunch options at on-site cafe

    Cons

    No company sponsored events for employees, unhappy employees, no access to the internet, no real Christmas party, no fun perks, unsupportive management

    Advice to Management

    Hire employees you think you can trust and treat them like you trust them. Build relationships. Act like you're happy at work and want to make employees happy. Blocking the entire internet for everyone in the office doesn't work these days since we can all access whatever we want on our phones.

    Pros

    Surrounded by hardworking "lower level" colleagues. Term used by upper management or "Superior"

    Cons

    Incredibly hostile environment in accounting department run by inadequate Director and a bipolar CFO who is "two-face" towards her staff. If you have a job and think the grass is greener on the other side, IT IS NOT here. The turnover is about 3-6 months and you either get fired or resign due to lack of training. Major micro-management, constant yelling and degrading staff, too much work and way understaff.

    Advice to Management

    Replace CFO and hire more staff.

    Pros

    Great work experience environment. Usually temp to hire. Easier to get inside for employment thru agency. Great benefits.

    Cons

    No opportunities for growth within the company unless you know someone or are Asian.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees....especially the ones who work hard and are good at what they do or they will fall thru the cracks.

    Pros

    pay decent, few very nice coworkers

    Cons

    if you don't save money for this company you'll be reprimanded quickly and unprofessionally. Had to quit before a yr due to this.

    Advice to Management

    consider more in depth training with cost savings in mind.

    Pros

    Great people, great vibe. Management really cares about the employees and the insured. I love my boss and get 100% support.

    Cons

    Not a lot of opportunities for advancement.
    Other than that, this is a great place to work and the pay is competitive.

    Advice to Management

    Try to be more hands off. Allow your employees room to learn from experience and their own success.

    Pros

    The benefits are good. They match up to 4% of your salary (before taxes) towards your 401K.

    Cons

    Because the company is expanding so quickly, there is a lack of capable hands to distribute the increased workload which adds a lot of stress to the work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Be more patient with your new hires and try not to project your frustrations onto them.
