    Pros

    Lots of smart, hard-working employees who pull their own weight. No prima donnas. Good collaboration.

    Cons

    It's an insurance company. Not the most fascinating material to work on.
    Only 2 weeks of vacation for the first 5 years. Lots of time spent on keeping track of time spent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Why don't you conduct exit interviews on ALL staff so you'd learn something?

    I worked at Harvard Pilgrim full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    In general a nice place. In research department there are lots of professors and PhDs from Harvard University. Big research projects can be helpful.

    Cons

    It projects managers sometimes do not take employees seriously. When they assign a work they begin with "you will need to......" rather than "can you......or could you.....".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please take employees more politely.I understand that PhDs and Harvard positions mean significant accomplishment but this is a work place not a school.

    I worked at Harvard Pilgrim full-time

    Pros

    Great coworkers, strong team environment. Benefits are okay but can be better. I think that they are working to find better ways to compensate and recognized workers now.

    Cons

    Cons are that managers have been there so long that it has become to seclusive. If they don't like you then its over. You have to be a kiss-up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please be aware of office culture and put personal things aside.
