Pros

Company pays well compare to industry standard.

Cons

Constant constant constant reorganization. Senior management jumps on every idea that sounds remotely good, and then cuts the plan in the 11th hour when they realize they bit off more than they could chew. Senior management acts like politicians... employees are smart enough to know how things work, but they just put on a smile, and tell you everything is excellent. The next day, layoffs hit, budgets are slashed, etc etc. Tell your employees the truth!!! It pays to be up front and honest with lower level management and employees. Nobody likes to be blatently lied too, but it seems as though thats the usual story!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Quit.

    Pros

    Flexibility between work / life. Telecommuting and working remotely helps to offset rising costs for fuel, clothing, food, etc. Location is important to me. At least in California, Health Net seems to be surviving this economic crisis. Teamwork and collaboration between departments along with an open door policy help to facilitate a healthy work environment.

    Cons

    Compensation / Benefits - lousy dental plan, no bonuses, no employee stock purchase plan (that is huge), poor employee recognition, favoritism, salaries below competition fail to meet cost of living increases. Outdated technology. Changes to policies/procedures and staffing not well communicated to the entire associate population. Projects slip or fail due to lack of communication. Too many Vice Presidents. Still not a true National Company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make it a great place to work, recognize and reward successes.

    Pros

    I got lucky and my own supervisor has been very fair & supportive of me.....

    Cons

    Outdated technologies, poor communication between departments. extremely poor morale due to outsourcing and/or layoffs due to the company-wide reorganization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior Mgmt should be outsourced....surely someone from India or the Philipines could do no worse at a fraction of the salary, bonuses, benefits, & golden parachutes that Senior Mgmt. not enjoys.......
