Positive experience as the company is very work/life balance friendly.

Project Consultant (Current Employee)
Pittsburgh, PA

I have been working at Coventry Health Care full-time for more than 5 years

ProsWork/life balance is a positive and flexible work hours plus tele-working.

ConsApplications are very antiquated, the employee technology is not sufficient to function efficiently, very silo organization with a spectrum of management from styles from micro managers to empowering managers.

Advice to Senior ManagementThis company has way too many managers, directors and vice presidents, especially in information technology. Corporate management needs to invest in the employees doing the work and the cut out the expenses associated with all of the management overhead.

A jumbled mess of chaotic unorganized management failures that have a direct negative impact on employees.

Customer Service Supervisor (Former Employee)
Harrisburg, PA

I worked at Coventry Health Care full-time for more than a year

ProsThe employees are nice enough considering the laughable management structure. Never have I been around people who thought they were so important but more clueless then anything.

ConsCSO is all I can speak for... the employees are treated like CRAP which explains the high turnover rate and what basically boils down to a new supervisor EVERY YEAR....

Advice to Senior ManagementBe part of the solution not part of the problem

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

Laid back, difficult to advance

Inside Sales (Current Employee)
Pittsburgh, PA

I have been working at Coventry Health Care full-time for more than 3 years

ProsLaid back environment, easy to get days off, managers and directors all highly professional. It's an easy place to work if you're looking for a 40ish hour work week and no pressure

ConsDifficult to advance. Most people there end up leaving to a competitor for more $$ or a promotion. It's common to hear "oh Joe Smith went to Highmark" or "Mary Smith went to UPMC." Departments don't communicate well and a lot of things slip through the cracks.

Advice to Senior ManagementDo more to help people advance and you'll stop losing talent to competition.
