    Great place to start your career

    Member Services Representative (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsAt Healthfirst I have encountered the ones of the nicest, most professional people that I ever worked with. The job is what it is but people make a whole lot of difference. The office culture is great, people are very friendly, my immediate supervisor was very always available for any assistance that I needed be it personal or professional.

    ConsI had a late schedule and it didn't work for me.

    Excellent work environment

    Facilitated Enroller (Current Employee) New York, NY

    Prosannual raises
    bonus twice a year
    excellent management, very flexible and pushes you to do your best
    friendly work envorinment

    ConsNo downsides here. Great company overall

    Advice to Senior Managementpromote within the company for management positions rather than hiring from outside. A seasoned staff with prior knowledge and experience would be much more efficient and productive compared to a new hire from another agency outside of the company. Also, give compensation and raises more frequently to those who are deerving of it.
