I have been working at Humana full-time

Pros

Some of the best technology talent I've had the opportunity to work with. Creative "outside the box" thinkers who could put Humana on the cutting edge of technology.

Cons

Knowledge of advanced and emerging technologies minimal at best at the decision-making level. Life could be a lot easier if those decision makers would act on the input of those who stay abreast of evolving technology.

Advice to Management

Listen to input from experts in the trenches. Many times the least expensive choice when making a purchase becomes exponentially more expensive over time; often surpassing the cost of purchasing products that actually meet the need.

    I have been working at Humana full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Humana cares about giving the managers training and really cares for the well-being of their associates. If you are willing to learn, you can learn a lot.

    Cons

    All leaders are required to take leadership training courses and apply the knowledge. This seems to stop at the director level. It is frustrating having to deal with directors' petty ego problems amongst each other. I watched several sabatoge work done by another director's team, just to prove they were right. The only people that really care about associate engagement are the Process managers and Managers. The directors and higher just care about numbers on a piece of paper.

    Advice to Management

    Start learning how to engage with levels below your direct reports. They see the in-fighting and the way the Managers are treated as scape goats and no on wants to be promoted because they don't want to have to real with you. From top down, learn how to treat associates as human beings and the numbers will follow.

    I worked at Humana full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Exceptional benefits for the employees. This is a place were you are constantly challenged (in a good way). You are challenged to use all your skills and intelligence. There are so many benefits for the employees like several options of health insurance packages that you can choose from, wellness program benefits, plenty of days of paid vacations, sick days (they pay you a bonus if you don't use your sick days), personal days. There are several social activities during the year as well. They are always finding ways of improving their technology, so you aren't using old computers or applications. There are huge opportunities for advancement in this company. They will even reimburse for your education costs if you meet certain requirements. They have plenty of training going on throughout the year. Additionally they have conferences and trainings that are non-work-related, just for the benefit of the employee's like out of work. This is a great company to work in.

    Cons

    I don't have anything bad to say about this company. Of course in every job, there are always things that happen the you don't agree with, but in my experience with Humana, they were small situations and they were not a constant every day thing.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. Your human capital culture is great as well as your customer service.
