I worked at Regence full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Regence used to be a good company to work for. In recent years, morale has decreased due to many layoffs, including employees (or especially employees) with many years of service. However, they pay fairly well, and depending on the department and supervisor, you can have a good experience. Best strategy seems to be to not stay too long with the company.

Cons

No loyalty to empoyees. Increased pressure as a result of layoffs. Outside employees seem to be valued over internal employees as a rule. They talk about work/life balance but only if it doesn't interfere with work.

    I worked at Regence full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Corporate Cambia is well positioned to be very profitable. Workforce is accustomed to uncertainty, tolerant to changes. Improved healthcare products and service operations. Good 401k package and matching contributions. Some very bright, earnest people deserving respect and admiration.

    Cons

    Very dysfunctional (even hostile) relationships inside departments and between divisions and states. Surprising amount (even for a finance company) of smiling, manipulative sociopaths throughout management ranks. Mob mentality among lower level management and their sheeple against anyone who bucks the politics. Stealth layoffs (aka "the bodysnatchers"). The Cambia-Regence divide feels like a trial separation (Dad's dating models, Mom's got the kids but can't balance the checkbook).

    Advice to Management

    I have no idea what their ultimate goals are. I don't think it has much to do with insurance anymore.
