Pros

Job and career opportunities Challenging work Work/life balance Organization trying to adapt & be an innovative leader in a changing market place

Cons

Poor medical benefits strange given we are a health care benefits corporation Difficult to maneuver within large organization to locate right people/team Significant process overload while trying to work with IT Slow to respond to changing environment Often times manual processes, workarounds institutionalized due to cost and time to delivery of IT. Complex IT infrastructure which can result in difficulties in getting member claims processed correctly.

Advice to Management
