    Pros

    Generous pay and good benefits. Very flexible work locations and rather flexible work from home options depending on Managers reporting to.

    Cons

    Company is divided into silos and the mentality prevails in the teams to a huge extent. There is talk in higher management about talk of breaking the silos but haven't seen it in reality.

    Advice to Management

    This is a good company. A good change in the management in reducing team politics and turf wars and fostering an understanding that we are working for the benefit of the company is highly necessary.

    Pros

    It's easy to get promoted here as long as you're smart and know what you're doing. It's also easy to take time off during the "slow" months and PTO hours accrue very quickly. The benefits are also great.

    Cons

    There is an everchanging work environment, most likely due to ACA. It can be hard to keep up with all the changes if you're not good at adapting to it. Certain functions of Health Net will be "rebadged" under Cognizant.

    Pros

    good benefits, flexible schedule, good co-workers, room for growth prior to the outsourcing.

    Cons

    Future remains unclear, uncertain whether some associates will be laid off or rebadged, overall outsourcing no job security.

    Pros

    They pay for your gym membership and part of transportation

    Cons

    Commute to work, cost of commute, length of time it takes to commute.

    Advice to Management

    None, they already have an idea.

    Pros

    Solid pay, very generous benefits. 401k, tuition assistance, generous PTO accrual once you've been there for a while.

    Cons

    Poor technology. Poor collaboration. Lots of individual heroics necessary. Bad relationship between IT and business areas leads many business areas to hire shadow IT staff under business titles. Not good for company or long term career prospects of these tech employees. Company is in a constant state of reaction. Everybody is a "firefighter"

  7. Good starting company

    Pros

    My coworkers are wonderful people.

    Cons

    The systems never work, management doesn't know much about the products, too much favoritism and unrealistic expectations.

    Advice to Management

    Care more about your employees than your bonus and they might hate it less.

    Pros

    Great coworkers, leadership was okay. Good benefit package. Appeared to be opportunity for advancement depending on the department you are in.

    Cons

    Lack of communication between departments, felt siloed. Focus needs to be placed on improving the lines of communication between management and staff.

    Advice to Management

    None

    Pros

    People are nice. Salaries competitive. Education reimbursement. Option to work from home a couple days a week.

    Cons

    Right now there is a lot of uncertainty as many departments are being in process of being sold to Cognizant. Layoffs expected in the coming months for some, others will be offered to rebadge and work for Cognizant.

    Advice to Management

    Too much process to follow. Job becomes more about following overabundance of process rather than getting job done.
