Great mission, unable to execute

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsThe concept of what Healthways wants to accomplish is one that employees really rally behind. There are many great staff in that organization.
Good life work/balance.

ConsThere is a serious inability of leadership to make sound financial decisions and to execute the vision. I'm suprised the board hasn't demanded a change in executive. I could list numerous examples of financial mismanagement and although I applaud the focus on company culture and benefits, they've taken it too far and it is affecting the productivity in the organization.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou have a visionary now recruit leaders who are capable of executing.
Recruit leaders with a strong financial background and give them the ability/authority to make sound financial decisions.
Hold people accountable to their responsiblities.
Stop making one-off exceptions to policies.
Stop hiring/promoting your friends and get people with proven effectiveness.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
