Have no complaints; I needed a job in a down economy and they hired me, which gives me a great deal of loyalty.

I have been working at L. A. Care Health Plan full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

The benefits are quite good. They have a reputation for not paying as well as other companies but the benefits help balance it out. Plus you work to help people who need help, and that's a good feeling.

Cons

Sometimes we don't always know where we are going because of external forces, but I feel we will be just fine after Obamacare is all implemented and the dust settles.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Walk among and talk with employees on all floors at least once a week.

    I have been working at L. A. Care Health Plan full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The mission, vision and values I believe in. We serve underserved and vulnerable populations in a managed care business model. We are now serving Medi-Medi members and disabled members and with the passing of the Affordable Care Act we will serve lots more members in the coming years.

    Cons

    -There is very little room for career growth in most departments
    -The management team is stifled by the executive team in general, communication between the two sets is poor
    -Fiefdom hood is the way the organization is run
    -We say we are ethical, and we are trained every year on ethics and doing the right thing, but upper management rarely does what they say management and employees should do
    -You really aren't allowed to express new and creative and smart ways of doing things and accomplishing one's goals or department objectives, it's a dictatorship mentality, so as long as one understands that, they can be happy under those rules. You are taught to have employees fear you.
    -The pay and benefits are low compared to our competitors. Executives make a lot but not management or employees, yet it's all public dollars.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The executives need to look at the management and employee base of the organization and make real changes, otherwise people will continue to be unhappy, continue to leave, or remain and be unhappy and underappreciated.
