    I worked at Healthways full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Unbelievable vacation time and benefits including fitness classes on site at lunch, and a free gym membership right down the road. I've never had so much vacation time in my life!

    Cons

    To be fair, the leadership I was under is no longer in place. That being said, the leadership at the Chandler office generally seemed to be a bit high-maintenance and high-drama. If you can fly under the radar and avoid the drama, it's a great place to work!

    Pros

    Healthways focuses on well-being, meaning the work benefits the greater good, and not just the bottom-line. Healthways also walks the talk, and places high value on the well-being of its employees. This means it's a culture that encourages physical fitness, eating well, and using your paid time off.

    Cons

    There is sometimes a disconnect between the various business units.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Help us see potential synergies across departments.

    I worked at Healthways full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Excellent boss, great colleagues! Flexible work schedule, wellness oriented. Good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Leaders did whatever clients wanted so it was challenging to create a core product that wasn't continually mutilated by custom work. Not much room for advancement after a certain level. Somewhat of an old boys club at the top.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Decide what your core product is and don't stray too far away... or add client enhancements to the entire core product as options.

    Pros

    A wonderful innovative company that wants to remain a market leader in total population health across various health care payer sectors.

    Cons

    Too much entitlement within the company and a lot of the wrong people are in positions to make decisions. Internally need to work really work on product development of products/solutions. Also salary and benefits is no longer competitive unless you are at the c-suite, senior leadership, and management level. No bonus in he last 4 years

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Benefits and pay need to be more competitive at the individual contributor level. Also people need to be promoted for proven results and work completed and not based off who someone has wine a 5 with on a regular basis.
