    I have been working at Group Health full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The overall caliber of individual that is at Group Health is truly top notch. People at Group Health are passionate about making a difference and it is evident in the quality of the people that are make up the Group Health team. Also, the work/life balance, while talked about, at a lot of companies, is really is a way of life at Group Health. The benefits are amazing!

    Cons

    There are no opportunities to have equity/stock/RSUs in the company but this is not possible with a non-profit organization.

    I worked at Group Health full-time

    Pros

    I don't know what pros remain at what used to be an outstanding health care organization, for employees looking for a place to thrive.

    Cons

    They have been ruthlessly "resetting" the organization, getting rid of the ones with expertise and deep content knowledge.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the current CEO. He has run this organization into the ground. Go back to your roots as GHC was created. Hopefully it's not too late.

    I worked at Group Health full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, with medical, vision, dental, and 403(b) options. Vacation and sick time all rolled into a single (PTO) grouping, which can be great for those that don't need to have a separate sick time allocation.

    Cons

    Like most large companies, your enjoyment or fulfillment of a role can be greatly influenced by having a good, or in my case poor management.

    Advice to Management

    You were once greatly involved in the work of your employees. Over the last couple of years, that focus has changed back to ruling by dictation from up high on the hill.

    Pros

    Great group of very smart people, trying to do the right thing for healthcare and the people that use it.

    Cons

    Can be very political, departments can have a fortress mentality

    I worked at Group Health (More than a year)

    Pros

    It's a friendly environment to learn the ways things work and the processes

    Cons

    For someone ambitious the work culture seemed a little low-paced.

    I worked at Group Health (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits (subsidized transportation benefits, health insurance, employee education programs). Reasonable hours with a lot of flexibility for salary employees. Well defined roles and avenues for growth.

    Cons

    There was a lot of change happening in the organization and the possibility of layoffs caused a lot of tension in departments. This fear reduced collaboration as everyone wanted to ensure they were too important to be let go.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent in change management.

    Pros

    Great pay and a friendly work environment.

    Cons

    It is pretty difficult to move to a different position within the company. If you know someone it can help to get you a different position, but you tend to end up stuck for quite some time.

    Advice to Management

    Allow top performing representatives the opportunity for growth.

    biggest reason to work here is the self rewarding feeling you get from your job, the mentors you get to learn from and the relationships you get to build.

    Cons

    no challenge. this place is great. I have nothing at all negative to report about this place. the services offered and the customer service is outstanding. I encourage all to join the team or go through Group Health for coverage.
