I have been working at Coventry Health Care full-time (More than a year)

Pros

- Challenging, high-visibility, and mission-critical project exposure within first year on the job - Opportunity to learn newer, state-of-the-art technologies - Knowledgeable, friendly, team-oriented atmosphere - Interact with and learn from leaders across several different business areas - Wide variety of projects keeps work from getting mundane and boring - Team leads and upper management recognize and value high-quality and efficient work - Leaders and Mentors work with you to provide opportunities to develop and strengthen you skill set and knowledge base, as well as further advance your career - Freedom to be creative and innovative when it comes to finding new solutions to both old and new business problems/challenges - Majority of colleagues have great attitudes and sense of humor - Management is very reasonable and flexible (within the bounds of company policy) as far as schedule is concerned - Decent benefits - Team members typically stay on board with the company for more than just a year or two

Cons

- Time tracking system leaves much to be desired - Not all departments, positions, and projects have the same Pros as those listed in this review - If you expect clear and specific direction from management and leadership without asking for it, you may become very frustrated in your role - Weak project managers leading large, highly visible projects are not common; however, if you're stuck with one, your work might end up quadrupling due to poor project communication, coordination, organization, and general control of scope. - Takes weeks to get access to software/systems/data after filing and expediting requests - Manager-Employee ratio is high (1 manager:20 employees) in some departments - Resource allocation/ workload distribution could be tracked and managed better to handle unexpected high priority/time urgent requests and fixes - Change management tracking system is obnoxious, approval requirements change frequently (sometimes daily)

Advice to Management

Keep on taking an active interest in your employees' professional success Make sure any new managers you hire are of comparable or better quality than the leadership team you have now Try to lower the manager-employee ratio Bring in an assistant manager to track and stay on track of task/project assignments, as well as workload.

    I have been working at Coventry Health Care full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    This company was great when I first started, 6 years ago.

    Cons

    The managers in some departments are terrible and lack experience. There is favoritism and when you call them out on it they get upset and try to retaliate. Unhealthy work environment. People are in job rolls that have no experience yet. Very unethical practice.

    Advice to Management

    Clean up your management staff, the one you have now is terrible. Stop promoting your friends and hire talent. Stop hanging out with your staff, ones with ethics.

    I have been working at Coventry Health Care full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Coventry provides a great introduction into the healthcare industry. You are able to gain a wealth of knowledge and develop some vital skills there. Compensation is competitive.

    Cons

    It is a male driven company which makes it challenging for women to excel. There isn't a lot of training provided which means you are left to learn a lot on your own.

    Advice to Management

    It would be helpful if you provided extensive training and resources to allow employees to excel.
