    I have been working at Benefitfocus full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Teamed approach to helping clients: All functional areas work together to ensure client happiness. I've never seen such a strong relationship between account management, implementation, executive management and sales. Everyone works VERY hard but enjoys what they do: That has been my experience.

    Cons

    Not the type of company for the person who doesn't appreciate change and rapid movement. We are growing quickly, which makes it exciting to me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't forget what got us this far, I don't see that happening.

    I worked at Benefitfocus

    Pros

    A lot of young people which keeps the work place lively.

    Cons

    Poor pay. Poor management. The company is run by a volatile egomaniac. His management team is fully aware of this and for the most part has adopted a management style of "don't anger Shawn". This stifles the further potential in this company, however the attitude is not without merit. After the VP of Marketing decided to leave the company after 10 years of loyal service to take a less demanding job that would allow her to spend more time with her family, The CEO threatened to ruin her life and her career. No former employee would rate this company positively. There is a network of former "BF'ers" around town now that consistently talk about how fortunate we are to have gotten out!
