    I have been working at Healthfirst (New York)

    Pros

    It's a job, with a (low) salary. At this point, I'd say the only pro is the generous amount of paid time off (far above average) but I'm sure they're researching ways to cut back on this as I type this review.

    Cons

    Poor, uncommunicative management, super fast expansion with little regard for employee workload. Projects are piled on, yet salaries do not reflect increased workload or seniority. Technologically behind, with slow laptops and non reliable systems. No opportunities for advancement or training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If the exodus of long term employees out of the company in recent years is not a hint, then I have very little to add. This was once a fairly friendly small company. Now it is just another corporate hell-hole. Stop being jerks.

    Pros

    Being part of an organization that is driving innovation in healthcare is an incredible opportunity. Though change is difficult, there are countless ways to have an impact in moving the organization forward. The team here at HF is extremely committed to the vision and working together to truly be successful.

    Cons

    Given the amount of change, it is at times overwhelming. Often, leadership and their decisions seem disjointed, less visible, and moving too fast without asking the right questions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Slow down and wherever possible push decision-making to the lowest levels. Let go of how it was to fully embrace what lies ahead. Continue to build off of a great foundation of pioneering in the industry by capitalizing on the opportunities we have and fully utilizing our talent.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to be creative, because very few know what they are doing

    Cons

    All talk when it comes to culture and work life balance for middle careers. Executive managers are indecisive and always too overwhelmed to move with agility, by the time they do it's an emergency for everyone under them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Slow down. Recognize your scrambling around is not unnoticed and is eroding confidence. Learn to lead.

    Growing company with lots of opportunities for career growth.

    Cons

    Politics are ridiculous and the opportunities are given to the people from outside the company for the most part.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat people like you want to be treated and pay attention to internal control. The company has a great future don't let the wrong people ruin it.

    I have been working at Healthfirst (New York) as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    My first day of temp assignment with this company was Monday and the 18th Floor two Front Desks ladies were help and wonderful! Then followed by another wonderful lady - Team Leader at the 16th Floor from the Credentialing side. She was calm, collected, and informative about the company with a smile and gave me a brief tour then she told me who will be training me and to my surprised, the two Credentialing Coordinators were very skilled, professional and expert at what they do. They never frown and was always there for everyone. They were approachable, nurturing and caring... . The manager shook my hand as well I just don't know how much more to say..it is just a great respectable environment to work for. Well done!

    Cons

    Don't have any right now!
