The overall culture & values is amazing. It is for sure one of the best places to work.

There is a lot of competition between employees, and sometimes people coming from other companies don't get the competitive culture right away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reorgs are disruptive. Build an org and stick to it for a couple of years.
    The MS Health plan was a major factor in attracting talent. The new HSA sucks and will have an adverse effect on recruitment.
    Admit to failures as well as celebratin the successes. We gnerally had to find out about things such as the Kin and aQuantive fiascos in the press.
