Advice to ManagementAdvice

With the ever-changing landscape of the health insurance industry, leadership should keep employees up to date on how the company will continue to grow and achieve innovation. It is encouraging to work for a company that is ahead of the game so keep the employees informed and they will help support the company's mission, vision and growth.

    I worked at Norvax

    Pros

    Fun and casual work environment, flexible hours, management team is young and open to new ideas from most any employee.

    Cons

    Compensation was mediocre and it is a smaller company so no real chance for advancement because there aren't really any positions above the lowest level...

    Pros

    - Employees are given opportunities to think outside the box and make recommendations.
    - Technology department has liberty to implement its own process and evolve -- Scrum and Kanban, anyone?
    - Unit-testing and Integration Testing are encouraged.
    - Driven individuals can make a difference quickly.
    - Developers are encouraged to try out new things and integrate into the products and toolset (as with anything, proof-of-concept and ample convincing are necessary.)
    - Company knows how to "celebrate".
    - Recent perks include subsidized EBC membership, community bikes to encourage employees to enjoy the sun and unlimited vacation.
    - Shorts and flip-flops during the summer.

    Cons

    - Health benefits for married individuals with children can be expensive.
    - The management structure can be improved, but as is the case with any growing company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Revisit health insurance rates for married employees to make it competitive with other companies.
