    Great people terrible IT infrastructure.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe people are great, work life balance is good.

    ConsThe company does not value IT and the infrastructure is dated and broken. Many hours of associates' time are wasted while waiting for the systems to be repaired.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe companies who do not invest in their IT platforms will suffer competitvely in the future when other companies surge ahead with superior market offerings and data analytics.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Senior leadership has no vision. They change course repeatedly and consistantly waste, time, money and resources.

    Manager (Current Employee)
    Woodland Hills, CA

    ProsAt the individual team level coworkers are great. Good location and surrounding area. Short ride from freeway to office. Facilities are comfortable and well maintained.

    ConsNo long term vision at the senior executive level. Very reactive no long term planning. waste lots of money on projects that never get implemeted.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRun the company like you want to keep it forever, not like you want to run it into the ground for short term profits. Treat employees like they are valued.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Temps and more Temps

    Membership Representative (Former Employee)
    Woodland Hills, CA

    ProsConveniently located to freeway and restaurants. Nice corporate park setting. Temps are hired into entry-level positions and promoted up from there, which is great for those starting out in their career. Fast temp placement available through Kelly Services.

    ConsPolitics guide management hiring decisions. Temps pay parking ($105/month). Temps hoping to be hired can expect to be offered low-pay entry-level positions, regardless of qualifications, experience, or performance. IT services outsourced to India (Cognizant).

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good company, happy overall.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Rancho Cordova, CA

    ProsCan set own hours, good work/life balance. good benefits including 401k matching and tuition reimbursement. Cafe & gym onsite.

    ConsNo alot of room for growth unless you are very familiar with the health care industry. Hiring process can take months.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMany employees are not productive and accomplish very litte work, management doesnt seem to mind.
    Makes it hard for driven employees to work with.

    They only care about stock value not patients, doctors or their employees

    Management (Current Employee)
    Woodland Hills, CA

    ProsWfh and pto are nice benefits if approved

    ConsCutting networks and access to doctors and hospitals and laying off community outreach and wellness department. They don't give a crap about anything but the bottom line. They made a huge profit last year and then no salary increase until August instead of March after everyone busted their butt. What health insurance company cuts their wellness program!

    Advice to Senior ManagementKnowledge of company is lost due to turnover. When someone leaves they close position and "redistribute " their work to their team. They even set up their own employee hsa plan incorrectly and never announced it to date. They cut corners everywhere they can. No wifi. No cell service. No bonus for employees below management.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
