    Pros

    Great company mission, good benefits and lots of diversity.

    Cons

    Hard to get into the company and difficult to move around in the company unless you know someone. People are moved into manager positions because of who they know or based on positive project outcomes, yet they have no experience managing people. In other words, promoted based on technical expertise, not on a manager skill set. This becomes problematic for the people that work under them. Also, lots of management level people brought in from consulting firms that want to run departments like projects. It doesn't work!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look for managers with experience, pay closer attention to People Pulse results and act on them within a reasonable time. The problems identified in those results do not go away, so take care of them immediately.

    Pros

    Ability to work with current IT technologies and smart people within the relative security of the Health Care/Insurance industries.

    Cons

    Large, bureacratic, and slow-moving; federated nature of organization often makes it feel like you're working with different companies altogether.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be less risk-averse and conversative; encourage employees to take reasonable risks and reward them for it.
