    I have been working at Tufts Health Plan full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good work life balance, training opportunities, gym onsite, nice coworkers, amazing healthy cafeteria, work on the latest issues in healthcare.

    Cons

    Poor Management, I worked more in the IT side of things and was more or less forced to code and QA my own work for a pretty low salary. Lots of politics especially if you are male, very female oriented and woman managers show hostility towards males. Lots of promotions of people who did not deserve them (hint, you don't know what a Left Join is or what Indexes are, you have no right managing IT). Pay was pretty pathetic to and after a few years they start making excuses on why they shouldn't give you your raise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really look at how bad management is, way to many meetings, people in IT who have no business there. The obvious sexism towards the advancement of Males on some departments.

    I have been working at Tufts Health Plan full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great environment, everyone is very welcoming. In-house cafeteria is nice.

    Cons

    You are stuck in your job until you hit your 'salary-cap'. Then and only then are you considered for a promotion. This has been discussed at numerous meetings and department announcements, and is just an accepted notion. Also, good luck getting an IT/IS project completed in a year, the wait time for a developer is currently at 6-8 months. All of the systems are built upon legacy databases and servers (one from 1975 that the business refuses to sunset), so be prepared to hear "That's not something the system can process"
