    Future

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsCompassionate workers who are overworked and underpaid

    Top Heavy

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat benefits. Excellent admin, mid - level IT and Analyst employees.

    ConsManagement mostly greedy consultants without buy-in. Multiple bosses with conflicting ideas delegating an impossible workload. CIO is not afraid to use the F word to employees and upper management are "yes" men. Little consideration for personal responsibilities - will schedule 5:30 meetings at 4:30. Take an extremely long time to process and reimburse expense reports. This list could go on......

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your people well and they will respect and work hard for you.

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

    Miserable!

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe salary and benefits are decent.

    Cons"Amateur Hour' with respect to management. "Who you know" better than "what you can do" in this over-centralized monolithic mess run by baby bean counters. Middle management appears to be a 3 year run that leave a "trail of bodies" in its wake before the inevitable axe falls. Bad morale would an improvement here!

    Advice to Senior ManagementLose the MBAs and start hiring MSHCAs (Master of Science in Health Care Administration), people who know how to deal properly with a true health care business model and not just "the bottom line."

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