    Pros

    Great new hire training from HR on your first week

    Cons

    This company has realized the out pouring bad reviews that they have placed fake reviews on this website. The networking manager or Telecom manager for HealthFirst is the worst I have ever experienced in understanding the fundamentals of networking and properly allocating resources for assign projects and day to day MACD's. The entire I.T department is managed from intimidation and favoritism with management.

    I would highly suggest looking somewhere else than working at Healthfirst that has no reputable reputation in New York for providing health insurance for low income families.

    Pros

    The company invests in technology and spends lots on changing corporate culture.
    The IT office space in NYC is nice. The benefits are good.

    Cons

    Promotion is not based on merit. There is a distance between what is practiced and what is preached. The IT infrastructure is a mess. It will not be able to sustain the growth it hopes for.

    Advice to Management

    Gain a real view of what is achievable in an allotted time-frame. Dictating goals unrealistic goals creates 'yes-men', not success.

    Pros

    It's an 8hour a day kind of place.

    Cons

    The place is so unorganized that you need more than 8 hours a day to get your work done.
    Social promotion is more important there than promoting people based on job performance.
    Employees there have the worst attitude based on their perception that they could get fired an minute. It's not a place for career growth.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people who know what they are doing. Fire the ones who are just there collecting a paycheck.

    Pros

    Paid time off. Plenty of space for parking. Filtered water.

    Cons

    Upper management exceed micromanagement levels. Very unprofessional lack of leadership. The people who gave some good reviews about the company are the people who brown-nose a lot-not me. All upper management are connected to make sure that most employees feel miserable at work. I rather be a dishwasher in busy restaurant that being here.

    Advice to Management

    If there's someone who cares one bit. All malicious upper management need to be replaced by professional leaders not bosses. Pat Wang you care about your company. Immediate actions need to be taken. Perform confidential interviews for every employee regarding upper management and listen to what employees have to say.

    Pros

    Position and company allow for telecommuting which adds so much to work/family balance. Opportunity for growth abounds, great group of co-workers. Very flexible with PTO.

    Cons

    At times, processes are put into effect that make it difficult to then carry out prior expectations. It's an evolving company in a changing healthcare environment.

    Advice to Management

    No advice to give, each employee needs to understanding that at each level, someone above is looking at data, interpreting it and trying to make changes.

    Pros

    Company is close to public transportation

    Cons

    If you possess the one indispensable skill – battering and blustering your way to the top – incompetence in other areas is no impediment.

    This company is rampant with politics, favoritism and backstabbing. Brutal and toxic behavior is a common occurrence from senior leaders who are not interested in improvement but rather pushing their own self serving agendas.

    Within a short amount of time of working here you will find yourself deflated, overworked and under appreciated.

    Advice to Management

    Executive leadership needs to get a pulse on what is happening in the company

    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 Management

    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

    The company is a good company.

    Cons

    The Lake Mary location is very unprofessional. There are alot of inexperienced people that move up due to favoritism. This office has been reported to the EEOC. I hope they find out the truth about how they force hard working and decent people out and promote people who are unprofessional and ignorant.

    Advice to Management

    You need to be more cautious of who you are letting into your organization.
