    Pros

    Fair benefits--although they bundle sick and vacation which is not a great offering, Also they have a fair amount of outside of work discounts like gym memberships. Desk ergonomic options are great and available--so take advantage and seating is often very crowded. Values are fantastic but.....BIG but they don't translate. THRIVE is wonderful but its an ideal customer they seek rather than a culture they foster. The Thrive patient is healthy and is independently managing their health--which is great because getting more than 15 min in front of a gatekeeper Dr. is as easy to manifest as an act of God. Nice matching in 401K and retirement but you have to be there 5 years and very few people--stay the course except the ones well over 12 years in--seems they have resigned themselves.

    Cons

    Very politically run company. All parts work separately from HQ because of the politics and as such-- very disparate. Management is not transparent at all. They will work you to death. Do not allow or acknowledge partner family death as time for grieving nor for taking time to attend services. Pay is extremely low-end and they will do everything they can not to negotiate with you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Transparency! Practice what you preach and if you are going to work your employees to death then separate sick and vacation days. 401k vesting at 2 years as few stay for all 5.

    Pros

    You are but a speck on the radar with 190k employees. You need to choose your projects wisely to get attention. Stealth mode can pay off handsomely if you spring your project on the right person.

    Cons

    Now I know how passengers on the Titanic felt. I've never work with a company so large and fearless that it moves in a direction regardless if you think it is sane or not.
