I worked at Humana full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Telecommuting (work-at-home) option in some departments. Flexibility and adequate work-life balance, depending on your supervisor.

Cons

No room for advancement, hence why I left in order to move into management at a different organization. In some departments, you report to your equal, who reports to another equal. So in essence, you have to leapfrog 2 equals just to get to a management position. Lots of red-tape in its processes. As an associate, you are just a number and will never really get heard or make a difference. Humana considers that everyone is replaceable, so when that "replaceable" person leaves, all his/her projects are thrown out of whack. They're also always looking for ways to shed employees to save money. If you think you're on your way out, chances are you probably are. Pay attention to the writing on the wall.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

None. You're obviously smarter than me.

    I worked at Humana full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent and loyal employees, very hard working worker bees. I worked to gain valuable experience which I recieved.

    Cons

    Worse management team I've ever worked with in 20 years. Little to no recognition for employees, interested in profits and CYA. Always threatened by employees who are more educated and knowledgable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the employees, they are smart and know what they are doing.

    I worked at Humana full-time

    Pros

    The peer team members are great

    Cons

    Certain Senior (the seasoned) management has the mob mentality! They spend hours in one office gossiping and character assination of their subordinates. They travel together for strength and intimidation. They are so unprofessional and it resembles a high school mentality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior Management should be trained on how to respect and POSITIVELY lead their subordinates. Rather than management by fire!
