    Pros

    People are helpful and friendly. Benefits are adequate -- similar to larger competitors.

    Cons

    Management is not strategic, board is weak and company, for its size, is extremely top-heavy. They solve most budget problems by outsourcing and layoffs instead of strategically considering other ways to cut costs.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce the number of vps and directors and staff up where the real work gets done -- at the bottom levels.

    Pros

    I loved what I did working with the providers and helping.

    Cons

    They fire people at the drop of a hat. And I Hope YOU Know this company actually sold to a company that will end up outsourcing all the job except the medi cal which is federal and can't be outsourced. The sale should be final in 2016

    Advice to Management

    Care more about your employees

    Casual atmosphere and relaxed. Good money for the level of expertise and career. Little opportunities to learn more about the business.

    Give more attention to longevity, leadership, and shared vision.

    Pros

    Great place to work. Telecommute options and lots of opportunity to grow if your boss likes you. California jobs are better and the people are much nicer

    Cons

    Silo departments and your director can stop you from getting promoted by telling HR not to offer you the promotion. Office politics is practice here......not a friendly
    Place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Office politics and silo department needs to be addressed. Some Managers, Directors and Administrators abuse their authority without consequences. HR related issues take too long

    Pros

    I enjoyed my time at Health Net. I learned a great deal about government contracts related to the military. The benefits are excellent.

    Cons

    Employees have learned to do more with less due to lay offs in various departments. Not much room for advancement within the company structure.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to be more transparent and honest with the employees.
