Pros

The benefits are great. The people are nice.

Cons

There are some incompetent managers, and poor performance is tolerated. Nobody ever gets fired -- even if they don't come to work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There are some hard workers at the company. Find a way to reward and recognize them. It seems that there is no difference whether an employee works 20 solid hours a week or 60 solid hours. Also, outsourcing the I.T. shop to save 25% is ridiculous when you can save the quality employees by cutting out 10 to 15% of the lowest performers and renegotiating some of the large contracts. The bottom 10 to 15% aren't providing much value anyway.

    Time for new new management

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - ITG Associate  in  Rancho Cordova, CA
    Current Employee - ITG Associate in Rancho Cordova, CA

    I have been working at Health Net

    Pros

    Good benefits, before recent management decisions there was good team work.

    Cons

    Lacking senior management, poor ITG planning. Failed projects.
    Our HN One project was a MAJOR fiasco costing the company millions with NO net plus to the company and abandoned before completion. Our infrastructure is running on outdated systems and outdated thinking regarding the systems. We have a CEO with no vision or understanding that senior management bonuses for axing employees is not really good for the morale of the company and stock holders.
    The lack of vision and proper management has lead to the outsourcing and loss of valuable ITG associates leading to a loss of a knowledge base that will take a long time to recover from.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit, find knowledgeable people and let them do their job.
