Great products and great people, awful upper management

I have been working at TriZetto full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

There are some truly great people working in the trenches. Some of the products, like CareAdvance, have a chance to actually change how healthcare is provided in America, if they can get off the ground.

The Boston office's management has an understanding of work/life balance, and they have embraced the unlimited vacation policy as something that can help people not get burned out, unlike other offices.

Cons

Unfortunately, upper management turns over about every year or so, and direction changes allow the worst of the upper and middle managers to just go from one department to another, so nothing really actually changes. There's no translation between grandiose plans and actual execution. The new CEO seems to have a better sense of planning, but given how long anyone stays in charge, the board is likely to have someone new in within a year. The company is owned by a private equity firm that does not care about the actual products, only about how much they'll be able to sell Trizetto for when they decide to do that.

As a healthcare company, it has the absolute worst healthcare benefits package I've ever seen. Even the new packages announced for 2014 are bad, at an increase in premiums of between 7 and 24% depending on your salary and the type of plan. The new PPO option is a high deductible plan too.

Depending on where you work there may be lots of career opportunities or none. Basically, that means if you're in Denver, you can advance. If you're not, you won't.

There was a huge push to build a single culture under the previous CEO, but his methods involved taking the worst things from the corporate office (like dress code and restrictive policies on working from home) and making them mandatory everywhere.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Buckle down, spend some money on your people, and create a strategy that can actually be executed, instead of chasing the next customer with a ton of money.

    I worked at TriZetto full-time

    Pros

    Can work from home
    Some great people

    Cons

    Leadership team is unqualified for management roles (micro-managers, lack of motivation, no skills building or interest in future of employee)
    Lack of structure
    Top Heavy
    Too many changes in short amount of time (had 3 managers in one year of employment)
    No accountability to leadership
    The work applied for versus work given doesn't add up
    Problems relaying how work of employee fits into "big picture"
    Dishonesty among leadership and management (lied about turnover and unlimited PTO policy)
    Very "Clickish" (if you don't suck up, you don't move up)
    Lack of recognition for remote employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on motivating, training, and developing your employees instead of "managing" their every move. Cut some of the fat, and clearly communicate changes in the company and how they will impact employees. Be honest!

    Pros

    Trizetto has a knack for hiring some of the best talent, good people, very intelligent and hard working. Good comraderie for the most part.

    Cons

    Management ran the company like a total sweatshop, working people to death almost literally. I've seen at least two people take away by ambulance for health issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No amount of profit makes up for the loss of a life or great employee.
