    I have been working at First Health Services full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Encouragement for picking up new technology, CEO is excellent and brings positive change. Constantly something new to learn. Work-life balance is good with an extensive PTO time available. Never a dull moment or a sense of complacency with what they have on their plate.

    Cons

    Constantly hectic, Projects and RFPs are always coming in. Management seems to have a lack of focus on what business they want tot attack. several different siloed areas of business, tough to consolidate technologies or methodologies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to set a direction, be willing to focus on higher ROI items and discard business that is not producing.

    Pros

    great place to work for heroes.

    Cons

    fairly chaotic. not well-thought out from capacity, customer, process perspectives. poor inter-departmental communication, and little communication from leadership. sort of seat-of-pants.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at First Health Services

    Pros

    Health insurance industry - high in demand now
    A job - the economy is not the best right now
    Good place to be if you're where you need to be in the skills area.

    Cons

    Not a lot of career direction given to employees
    Knowledge transfer is inadequate given the consultant model or hiring
    Onboarding process is not the best

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should get to know their employees better to be able to better understand what types of projects to place them on.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO
