I have been working at Senior Whole Health full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

SWH is an HMO for the old, the sick, and the poor. It delivers coordinated care for "dual-eligible" seniors - those who qualify for both Medicare and Medicaid. The people working there have a commitment to service and the plan - while small - has steadily grown.

Management is considerate of work-life balance.

There has been a lot of stability in the staff, particularly in the IT area.

There has been more teamwork in IT in the past 2 years, but there is room for improvement.

Cons

The company was started in 2004 and is just now maturing to the point of standardizing policies and procedures in the IT area. So getting the work done depends on individual 'heroes'.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Improve communication, look for more opportunities for teamwork.

    I worked at Senior Whole Health full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Unique opportunity to help people who are poor and need health care - colleagues are well-intentioned and kind.

    Cons

    Lots of changes in executive and middle management since new investors bought the company. Company is at risk for falling behind due to leadership vacuum. Lots of waste and inefficiency. Upper management is insulated from day-to-day activities in all locations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The usual advice -- be open-minded and listen to your employees.
