    I worked at Health Partners Plans full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    HPP has great benefits and pay - an RN can find work at home status...and this company is growing.

    Cons

    For that great pay and benefits, one gets an overload of work so one must work past hours on a regular basis to not be pulled into the managers office. High stress level and poor managerial skills - not a nice environment as usually the atmosphere is one of being watched - even for those who are well respected! It is sad as upper management has no clue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers need training to be kind... and the watchdog atmosphere goes back to poor staffing... if HPP would increase staff to make the amount of members one manages reasonable, this would be a great company to work for but this was not the case.

    I worked at Health Partners Plans (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    salary
    bonuses, bonuses, bonuses
    location is accessible
    they really care about the members

    Cons

    corporate bullying
    favoritism- this is really bad
    culture is bad
    promotion opportunity is not fair across the board
    staff are promoted from staff level to VP while others remain in the same position for 10+ years
    there have been a lot of good staff who have left the company over the last two years.
    The vision is lost

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    look in the mirror and ask yourself are you doing it right for your staff?
    HR practices are unfair- The Board should have an independent review of HR performed of HR practices and operations.
    Listen to your employees
    Apply the same care, understanding, and respect to employees as is applied to members.

    I have been working at Health Partners Plans full-time

    Pros

    Great location - commuting, lunch, shopping. Good benefits and time off. Nice environment. Casual dress.

    Cons

    Lack of cooperation between departments. Hard work often goes unappreciated. "It's not what you know; it's who you know." Very political. Limited opportunities for advancement. Back-stabbing appears to be a required skill. Lack of communication within departments. Anti-retribution policy is useless.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review of managers, directors, vice presidents -- many severely lack managerial skills.

    Great People

    Current Employee - Case Manager in Philadelphia, PA

    I have been working at Health Partners Plans as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    The people are great. Politics is minimal and management won't buy in to back stabbing and politics. You will be judged by your performance and ability and dedication to your customers, not your politics. People are really dedicated to "serving the underserved", and sincerely want members to do well.

    Cons

    The location was difficult for me. Commuting to Center City is expensive and city wage tax was too much. Also, I felt chained to my desk. Employees every move is under surveillance at all times. You're only allowed to step away from the desk at lunch time and leaving the building at all is discouraged. I felt like I was back in Catholic High School. Why can't a grown adult employee make the choice to break up their lunch break time a little, get up a few times a day, step outside if they want. What does it matter, so long as the work is getting done? There is a security guard at the front door of the building who will report you to your manager if you try to go outside at any time other than lunch. Smokers, expect to be uncomfortable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay enough to compensate commuter and city wage costs. Loosen up the surveillance. Let people move around a little. Let the smokers smoke, so long as no one is taking more than their allotted break time, why is this an issue for management? Though I loved the people and the company, I couldn't tolerate how rigid it was regarding employee movement away from desk. I like to step outside during my workday

    Pros

    Great salary, great location. Wonderful people working in the company itself. Made some great friends. Departments are organized quite well.

    Cons

    Management has to learn to lead by example. Very top heavy when it comes to Management. Too many directors and AVP's. Management needs to learn people skills as well. No concept of how to deal with people and how to inspire better work out of them.
