    Pros

    Good benefits, great co-workers, challenging work. Innovation highly encouraged.

    Cons

    Management would tell you to speak up and provide feedback to make it a better place to work...but if you do, you will feel the heat. Be quiet and just do your work. Also, no matter how hard you work, if you are not liked, manager will find a way to force you out. Balance of work / life on a decline.

    Advice to Management

    Please be serious about listening to employees' feedback from the annual survey. Your "fixes" do not target the geist of the feedback.


  2. Great people, not the best work environment

    Pros

    NOTE: Worked at company HQ in Oakland. Good office location, close to downtown Oakland, Lake Merritt, BART, and other transit options. Great people who truly care about their company's mission. My boss brightened up an otherwise boring job. Enjoyed weekly email "Messages from the CEO." He seems to truly care, as well.

    Cons

    NOTE: Worked at company HQ in Oakland. Limited outlets for creativity. Claustrophobic work environment full of cubicles, artificial light, and secluded offices. You'd think a health-focused company would place higher value on employee health & happiness at the office... Tightening budgets appear to be limiting opportunities for innovation and concentrating funding on core services. Very bureaucratic at times. Old systems (think pre-digital) can make it difficult to find the information you need. But I know they're trying to digitize the massive business...

    Advice to Management

    Remember that the "Thrive" campaign mission can apply to employees, too.
