    Pros

    Good pay, co-workers are good people, reliable and willing to help you. Time-off- PTO works well and easy to use. You can really thrive under the right management.

    Cons

    Promotions and moving within company are almost non existent if you do not know the right people. Sadly, experience or qualifications are rarely acknowledged. Also true that management eventually pushes out people that aren't in the inner circle for those that are. Additional training in some departments may be mentioned, but not encouraged.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Humana Inc., management (I mean directors and above) need to practice what they preach and get to know employees below them. Walk down the aisles around you and talk to everyday analyst, specialist. A title shouldn't be handed out just to help micromanage and stop wasting time with soo many pointless meetings. Take the example of Humana Government Business. Know your people and use their skills. Quantity of employees or productivity isn't as important as quality of work or experience of employees. Take a close look at departments with low employee ratings. Maybe stop replacing the low level employees and look at the management that is over those people.

    There are no cons to working at Humana. I have nothing but positive things to say. I would recommend Humana as an employer to family and friends.

    Pros

    Pay. Advancement for those with the right outlook and level of initiative. Training available for other roles and growth. Growing quickly so lots of opportunities for new jobs. Good culture, really tries to keep staff happy and healthy. New CEO is awesome.

    Cons

    Tech playing catch up and IT sometimes drags feet. Health coverage should be better. Holds on to poor performers too long.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get IT some help. Part ways with dead weight, including leaders. More diverse health plans.

    Pros

    Great focus on well-being. In my area, we are allowed extra time throughout the week to do something for our well-being, whether it be emotional, physical, financial, or otherwise! Humana also just started a volunteer incentive that gives us extra paid time off to volunteer!

    Cons

    The one thing that I wish was better is the medical benefit. I wish we had better options, one that wasn't a deductible plan.

    I have been working at Humana (more than a year)

    Pros

    Puts their money where their mouth is for company values. Encourage employee wellness and work/life balance. I like having an employee credit card instead of having to spend my own money and expense it. I like working from home. I think the benefits are very good. I think the company is run professionally and has the expectation that employees behave professionally and at a high standard. I feel that the associates I have seen hired are high quality.

    Cons

    This is a large organization with a lot of legal and regulatory considerations. Therefore, decisions for change are slow. I don't feel that my ideas would necessarily be up for consideration. I do feel like a cog in the wheel vs. a creative part of the organization. Sometimes it is so "corporate" that it feels intimidating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Right now I have no advice.

    I have been working at Humana full-time

    Pros

    -Even though we have mandatory overtime, we feel appreciated and like we are important to the team success.
    - There are a lot of perks to get healthy or stay healthy. I have never been so encouraged by an employer to take care of myself.
    - Supervisors are more then willing to take time to discuss issues with you. If you feel like you don't understand something, someone will help you.
    - My co-workers are amazing. Everyone takes time to smile and say hi everyday. We encourage each other and can turn to each other when help is needed.

    Cons

    - Attendance is very very strict. You can get fired for poor attendence no matter how your performance is. It is easy to ask for a day off. You can't be late all the time and you need to stay on schedule as closely as possible. Being rude to customers and poor attendance will get you fired very quickly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the work in Right Source Specialty Pharmacy. Thanks for being great leaders
