Tampa office 2 years in and am seeking medical help for stress related illness.

UR Nurse (Current Employee)
Tampa, FL

I have been working at Coventry Health Care full-time for more than a year

ProsSome benefits are good, some are just Ok. Coventry was just bought out by Aetna, so no of raises this year. We are "new employees" to them. They did a wonderful thing for the LPN,s and began paying them overtime after 40 hours. RN's stayed on salary, and are expected to work overtime w/o pay.

ConsProduction production production production. Promises to work at home come with improbable standards and uneven playing field
Nurses are not valued.

Advice to Senior ManagementRemember this... All of your nurses stood in a darkened auditorium during their pinning ceremony and with our candlelit Florence Nightengale lamps, we recited the Florence Nightengale Pledge. True, there are some corporate nurses who never stood at the bedside, but most of us are there to take good care of your members the best we know how. Nursing is a calling, and we took vows to promote health in all living things. That is where our spirits find satisfaction and peace, and when we are free to do that, we start loving what we do again. Please start taking care of your nurses. When your nurses feel valued, happy and satisfied, everybody is happy.

Great experience, but unrealistic expectations

Manager (Current Employee)
Los Angeles, CA

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

ProsLots of varied projects and opportunities to learn. Most senior people are very committed, everyone works hard and takes ownership of the work.

ConsSimply too much work, and absolutely no "work-life" balance. People are expected to be at work or available via email, with little regard to any personal plans or commitments. leaving early or coming in late - even if it's pre planned seems to raise eyebrows.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe more open about expectations, tell people what variances in their schedule are acceptable, and when/if it's okay to say "I can't take any more projects".

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

Coventry is a good medium-sized employer

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Coventry Health Care full-time for more than a year

Pros"Small-company" culture; friendly atmosphere makes Coventry a comfortable place to work

ConsDoes not have the structure in processes found in a large company; Coventry has many plans in states/regions across the country that have a great deal of independence and autonomy - this contributes to inefficiency when any company-wide initiative is attempted.

Advice to Senior ManagementStandardize processes across the plans and regions to facilitate national company-wide initiatives
