Pros

Strong performers can really excel at Health Net. Pay is average, Benefits very good, Severance is better than industry. They are positioned for strong growth right now so a great time to join them.

Cons

Slow decision making at times, duplication of effort is frustrating as there are competing interests between units. Technology solutions are old.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Push more decisions further down in the company. Empower middle management and then hold them accountable for results. Value smaller units contribution.

    Laziness is encouraged. Longevity and incompetence is rewarded

    Pros

    Excellent compensation, benefits package. Very generous work from home opportunities.

     If you're looking for an easy paycheck, have a hectic home life w kids maybe, little accountability, HN is a great place for you.

    Cons

    Don't expect recognition for doing a good job. Mediocrity is encouraged and is so pervasive in the company. "Good enough" is good enough at Health Net.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No one without a bachelors degree (minimum) should ever be in a leadership position. Vice presidents at a minimum should know how to write standard English without obvious grammatical mistakes in formal communications.

    No one with just a high school degree should ever be promoted to a leadership position.

    Continuously communicate corporate strategy, goals, and vision often. HN is a company with no clear vision or direction.

    Great place to skate by, but banish the thought of long term success.

    Pros

    Incompetent management allows ineffective and lazy workers to survive for a long time. Great 401k match, and lots of PTO.

    Cons

    The company is going down the toilet and management has no clue what to do. Poor long term job security.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize that you have failed. Reposition the company as a small company and abandon dreams of being acquired by Aetna.
