For the most part, happy with my experience

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Fallon Community Health Plan

ProsMost of the people who were there when I was there were great, many I still keep in touch with. Company has an excellent mission and the people who work there are passionate about their work. Smaller health plan in the area allows for more innovation and flexibility. Less of a corporate atmosphere.

ConsThe company needed to establish formal policies and procedures. Lack of corporate atmosphere on the one hand is a pro, but is also a con in that there is less structure.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good place to work if you can get in

Clerical (Current Employee)
Worcester, MA

I have been working at Fallon Community Health Plan full-time for less than a year

ProsGood people, honest work. Getting HR to bring you in for an interview is the hardest part. It really helps to know someone. Good people. The company has changed since new management.

ConsIf you can get in it is a different culture than previous years. Some hardnosed managers and HR seems to be busy protecting themselves.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe more relational with employees.

FCHP was a good company to work for. They valued employees and customers.

Administrative Support (Former Employee)
Worcester, MA

I worked at Fallon Community Health Plan full-time for more than 5 years

ProsFCHP offered health insurance that you could live with and employee benefits that made you feel good about your job. Pay was fair and most managers were fair.

ConsFCHP has been trying to compete with the competition and struggling with that. There have been new managers and new management styles. I saw that the pressure was on in some situations. Most people considered that at least they have a job. HR does not contact you soon after applying.

Advice to Senior ManagementOlder management styles were more employee friendly.

Great employer supporting a work/life balance!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Worcester, MA

I have been working at Fallon Community Health Plan full-time for less than a year

ProsExcellent benefits and base compensation with flexible schedules available. Lots of promoting from within and growth opportunities.

ConsReluctant or resistant to change...and hesitant to adapt to new ideas. As mentioned in another review, they talk about wanting to adapt and change but then it does not happen. Change can be good and they need to embrace new ideas.

Advice to Senior ManagementGrow! The basics are there just need the growth and to inspire a culture that accepts change.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
