Pros

Great people, probably the only reason many people stay

Cons

Not enough resources. Trizetto is killing people who are not going to stay when they can go elsewhere, maybe make more money and work normal hours
Too many managers and VP's and not enough workers!!

Advice to Management

Why do we need a manager for 1 or 2 people?? What is the rationale for that?

    Pros

    - Some really smart, good people working here.
    - Flexible PTO is nice
    - Relaxed dress code
    - Strong products
    - Market leader
    - Opportunities to learn more and be involved in industry changes if you put yourself out there

    Cons

    - "Leadership" is non-existent; they're just egos filling spots on an org chart
    - Senior management are spin doctors - tell you one thing while doing another, no transparency even when you can see through what they're telling you
    - All but eliminated the bonus plan; company never makes their numbers so bonuses are basically a fraction of what they should be
    - Senior talent is exiting rapidly, people with the company for 8/10/12/15 years are suddenly leaving; very bad sign
    - Constant reorganization seems to be the only task senior management has on their plate
    - Ready fire aim mentality; company chases "good" ideas without fully vetting them
    - No communication or cooperation between business units; staff members end up getting blamed or railroaded for things that were out of control because they couldn't get any help or direction on routine tasks
    - No true training for staff; it's all basic high level training with no practical value; sets up otherwise intelligent people for failure
    - Lots of roles that seem to overlap; tons of confusion as to the value offered by multiple people doing the same job; causes the company to be bloated and slow
    - Few (or no) people in the company who can actually make decisions; all by committee and all politically driven/motivated; company is disintegrating under the weight of the politics

    Advice to Management

    To the board: completely clean house from top to bottom. Focus on the upper and middle management. You don't need a thousand directors and a thousand AVPs. Bring in a CEO who was a CEO/CIO/CFO at a health plan. Barring that, bring in someone from an industry where they have no choice but to be lean and competitive (think: automotive, manufacturing, etc.) - the company may be the market leader for now, but if you don't bring someone in who understands how to get things done, eliminate waste and truly lead the company then you will lose market share rapidly over the next few years and be lucky if you can find a buyer before you file for bankruptcy.

    So much potential wasted by overly ambitious, misguided management.

    Pros

    I liked the people I worked with a great deal.

    Cons

    Politics was a blood sport there. Upper management started a crusade against the managers who were there before APAX bought Trizetto. So many great leaders were fired, or quit, only to be replaced by those willing to support the new regime, whether they had the abilities to lead or not. Never in my life have I heard the term 'throw them under the bus' so much in my life from my manager. A climate of fear resulted where everyone was terrified of being fired for the smallest mistake. NOTE: I left a couple of weeks after Trace Devaney started with the company, so these comments are not directed at him but the my division's president and VPs.

    My job, as well as many others, was outsourced to India in 2010. Those who were losing their jobs were high-fiving each other, while those keeping their jobs were upset. I can't think of a better was to illustrate how low morale was at the time I left. It actually turned out to be the best thing to happen to my career in a long time.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your employees and treat them as human beings. They will be more likely to go the extra mile for you if they are happy in their jobs. A climate of fear doesn't do anyone any good.
