    I have been working at Health Net full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits; great coworkers. There are a few departments that tend to be stressful but overall, its still a great job where you can build a career.

    Cons

    The not-so-great departments can make for a stressful work place but if you bide your time, you can apply in other departments that fit your work style.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To the good managers, thanks! To the rest - take some HR courses or find a job that better fits your personality. Not everyone is cut out for management.

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits. The people you work with are great.

    Cons

    A lot of turnover in Management and they need to promote more internally. Once you leave the company they forget your name and achievements.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pass out a compliment once in a while. Your paycheck is not a complement.

    Current Employee - Senior Analyst in Rancho Cordova, CA
    Current Employee - Senior Analyst in Rancho Cordova, CA

    I have been working at Health Net

    Pros

    Flexibility between work / life. Telecommuting and working remotely helps to offset rising costs for fuel, clothing, food, etc. Location is important to me. At least in California, Health Net seems to be surviving this economic crisis. Teamwork and collaboration between departments along with an open door policy help to facilitate a healthy work environment.

    Cons

    Compensation / Benefits - lousy dental plan, no bonuses, no employee stock purchase plan (that is huge), poor employee recognition, favoritism, salaries below competition fail to meet cost of living increases. Outdated technology. Changes to policies/procedures and staffing not well communicated to the entire associate population. Projects slip or fail due to lack of communication. Too many Vice Presidents. Still not a true National Company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make it a great place to work, recognize and reward successes.

    Pros

    The pay was the best, they are competitive. I was there for 7 years. They also have weekends and holidays off most of the times.

    Cons

    Play favorites, a lot of brown noses. and its do as I say and not as I do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Its sad because they already know who will be Management, just go through the steps of interviewing employees, raising there hopes. Its a joke. How hard they work or put time in, does not matter. And the person already knows there getting the position, so of course its all over the office . Very unprofessional.
