Pros

You get health insurance coverage but you will need it as working for them can be sickening.

Cons

Pseudo Non-profit company, they are very much about profit behind closed doors.  They pressure field reps to meet an unattainable quota to enroll  every minorities that they can find in the ghettos  into their medicaid managed care plan with no regards to your work/life balance.  This pressure results into working beyond your 8 hour shift and on weekends and you get no overtime pay.  This is how  this company strives to make much of its  profit.  Managees are ignorant and completely out of touch with reality.  I doubt they possess any more than a GED/ high school/community college and that goes for the field representatives as well. Corporate bosses plays managers  like fools and they don't eve know it as this  job is the best they can do.  There was a lawsuit filed against them which they settled for several millions for failing to pay their field reps. overtime, the majority of whom are minorities. 

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop stooping so low in order to appease your money hungry corporate bosses. Get some education so that you never forget where you came from.  Your bosses will use and abuse you, and their marketing reps just like the masters did to their slaves back in the days.

    It was a very good experience until it was time to move on. They aren't as open with they're opportunities as they say.

    I have been working at Healthfirst (New York) full-time

    Pros

    Good PTO policy. Convenient location. Co workers good to work with.

    Cons

    Too many managers and directors in this company. Telecommuting is frowned upon in most departments. Scapegoating has become a pastime with upper management.
