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

Pros

It's a job in a bad economy.

Cons

Abusive management that rules by fear tactics which is tolerated by human resources. Expensive benefits with no choice of medical group.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat associates as valuable assets. The economy won't be bad forever.

    I have been working at Health Net

    Pros

    - There is a strong core group wanting to bring efficiency and change to the organization.
      - There are a number of very smart, well qualified and fun employees.
      - There use to be a strong sense that a small group could bring about positive change to a bureaucratic organization.

    Cons

    - Infrastructure outsourcing continues to be challenging.
      - The "many" who are stuck in the way things have always been far outnumber the "few" who attempt mightily to influence positive change.
      - Sr. Management is committed to an ever-growing outsourcing model. However, there is empirical evidence that quality and timeliness suffer greatly in the current model.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Make leading people fashionable again.
      - Listen to your people.
      - Right the outsourcing ship before we all go down.

    It's politics as usual.

    I have been working at Health Net

    Pros

    Health Net offers good benefits which includes paid gym membership and great MHN benefits. They also provide a healthy work/life ratio. Although the morale now is very low in certain departments due to outsourcing jobs to India at least the company will be able to give the upper management and stockholders the money they truly deserve.

    Cons

    In order to move up at health net you need to know the right people. It's all about politics and not based on job performance. I fortunately know the right people but there are several people who do a great job that will never get promoted.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO
