    One of the areas better employers in my opinion.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Louisville, KY

    ProsA wide variety of positions with varying workloads, work/life situations, and responsibilities. Transfers from role to role are accepted by management as growth opportunities. The company has good leadership at the top level. Humana is well positioned in the market at this time to flexible with the changing industry.

    ConsHumana is trying very hard to pull all the pieces of the company into the future. There are inevitable challenges with technology compatibility, and personnel during fast paced change that some departments will handle better than others.

    Being Fortune 100 does not make a good employer.

    Commercial (Current Employee) Louisville, KY

    ProsThis Company offers a good salary and the option to work from home and/or a flex schedule, to most employees.

    ConsThis company has diminished its ability and/or desire to see beyond the financial bottom line...pushing inventory no matter the outcome, errors, or dissatisfied clients. As a result, the atmosphere, employee commitment and overall focus to provide quality service and a product that is accurate and beneficial across the board, is virtually non-existent...on any level.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHonesty is the best policy. Listen to your seasoned employees and utilize the knowledge they have gained and developed...your employees are no longer vested beyond their paychecks.

    Nice facilities and good opportunities to learn, but too many delegators and not enough workers.

    Applications Consultant (Current Employee) Louisville, KY

    ProsPay, 401k match, flexible work from home, flexible for time off

    ConsImmature IT processes, never worked so many unplanned weekend days, insurance coverage is weak, IT teams choose there own SDLC (agile, waterfall, hybrid). There is a ceiling for technical workers - must either move into management or architect position. Too many meetings.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSDLC needs to be standardized across company and enforced. First level IT management needs to be closer to the work with fewer layers between. Emphasis on team building amongst associates within and across teams.

    Great Company

    Consultant (Current Employee) Louisville, KY

    ProsI feel like the corporate Humana really believes in their mission. The CEO and top leadership are very involved in the company and are working to make changes. The company has a great 401K plan and very flexible on work at home and when you need time off. The company is really forward thinking and trying hard to be thought leader in wellness.

    ConsThe mission translates down to the individual departments, but each department is in their own world and do not know what the other teams do. For new hires, there is very little department training (a lot of Humana training) and they just throw you in to begin on your own, but your manager and team mates are so busy with their own work, they don't have time to help much. The dream of Humana does not translate fully to individual teams. There is a lot of individual responsibility where each team member works on their own issues while on the same team, others are doing something completely different.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBreak down the silos so each team is involved in the total picture and not just their small area.
