Humana has been good to me

Business Consultant (Current Employee)
Louisville, KY

I have been working at Humana full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGreat company, depending on the department you work in. Very flexible in terms of hours. I know people who have not had much success while working for this company and I also know people who love this company. I happen to love it! I know I can leave and make about 20% more salary but I've learned a lot while working here and I also enjoy the flexibility.

ConsIf possible, know the fair market price for the role you are going after, make sure you stick firm to your asking starting salary. Most years I do get a raise but it's not much.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't just talk the talk but walk the walk.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

This company really walks the walk

Operations Manager (Current Employee)

I have been working at Humana full-time for more than 3 years

ProsA culture that focuses on well-being, strong sense of purpose, high employee engagement, flexible work schedules, positive team culture, generous benefits. Overall, it is a great place to work.

ConsMy impression is that salaries for associates who rise within the ranks of the company tend to be on the low side. One gets the feeling that they are being taken advantage of. Promotions, even large increases in responsibility, rarely come with greater than 8-10% increase in salary.

Advice to Senior ManagementThink about the way that you reward your top talent. I say this to you because I care. I really love this company.
As a very productive and driven worker who knows that they are getting paid under market value, please hear me when I say this...You do not want your talented and engaged workers to think that they have to leave the company in order to get paid fairly. Loosen the purse strings a little for your top talent and you will make it back ten fold.
A good company culture makes Humana an awesome place to work. But, at the end of the day, we work in exchange for money and a good standard of living. If a top producing employee starts to realize that they can get paid significantly more if they just move to another company, Humana's culture may not be enough to keep them.

Great Company To Work For

Work Content Specialist (Current Employee)
Louisville, KY

I have been working at Humana full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGreat pay
Very Flexiable hours
Supportive management
Lots of chances to move up in the company
Work at home option for many jobs

ConsHard to get a management position
College degree is a plus, but it doesn't give you much of an advantage
The annual enrollment period causes many areas to have a hiring freeze, (As much as 9 months a year)

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep growing. This is a company that truly does recognize associates that do great work.
Also, the hiring freeze is a big drawback.
That being said, I love work here!

I never plan on leaving

Associate (Current Employee)
Louisville, KY

I have been working at Humana full-time for more than 5 years

ProsHumana has a vision that is not only easy to understand, but easy to believe in. Not only as a vision for a company to achieve, but a vision that I seek to achieve in my day to day life. I often feel more proud about telling people about all the work other people are doing in our company, than I do talking about anything I do.
Adapting more Agile Working methodologies
Incorporating Well-being into everything we do
Family feel- despite large company

ConsThe company is growing rapidly and transforming that large of a company can take time and present hurdles at times. But nothing that we won't overcome over time

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to practice what you preach. It is not easy becoming a Well-being company in a world where regulations and old mindsets are trying to slow us down. Make sure you take every opportunity to not only sell our message, but live it in every interaction so that others can have the freedom to do the same.
