    Pros

    Benefits and compensation are okay. Opportunity to meet and work with a lot of talented and intelligent people. Promotion of Wellness program

    Cons

    If you're in the right group, it can be great. If not, you'll see levels of incompetence and lack of support all around you.

    Pros

    Flexible employer with friendly work-place backed up by encouraging management. Very good corporate culture to instill new ideas and innovation, excellent Technology transformation initiatives backed up with diversified workforce.

    Cons

    Health insurance benefits offered to its own employees could be definitely better. It is a surprise to find such high dollar deductible plans offered to its own employees by a Health insurance giant.

    Think twice

    Former Employee - Field Care Manager
    Former Employee - Field Care Manager

    Pros

    Hmmm...only pro I can think of is good PTO time

    Cons

    Outrageous cost for health care benefits. Very poor communication from all management. Change policies every week and expect you to get it right before info ever passed on to staff. Place co-worker on probation for not performing job, not seeing members as required but still give top % raise and behavior still continues with multiple slaps on the hand = favoritism.

    Pros

    Large corporation= good salery and benifits. Company on paper project a very positive presence in the health insurance and care management markets.

    Cons

    Far too many "managers" with a gotcha and stab - you- in- the -back attitude. Appears even that employees of one race are allowed to grossly discriminate against another without reprocusson.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to talk the talk about Humana's " values", then walk the walk and hire honest employees.

    Pros

    Paycheck, Work At Home, Nice Coworkers

    Cons

    Your experience will depend on leadership, as it varies across regions. My department was very dysfunctional. It was an environment of abuse, bullying tactics, manipulation, vindictive behavior, dishonesty and disrespect. There is a lot of turnover. I did not feel valued as a professional. Leadership has unrealistic expectations, and instead of working with employees to resolve barriers, they harass employees with metrics that can't be reached. If you show a talent or ability, they will take advantage and demand extra responsibilities, while others are not held to the same expectations. You have to be a yes person/kiss up, to get promoted. It's certainly not based on talent or people skills. New ideas are met with resistance and excuses, and the same cycle continues of being unable to meet expectations over and over, with the same broken system and then getting called on the carpet for failing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I understand you need to measure productivity in some way, but berating employees is not the way to go about it. Take the ideas and suggestions of your employees seriously instead of dolling out excuses and lip service. They are the ones doing the job every day, not you. Work toward building respectful relationships with your employees because people who feel valued are going to contribute more to your organization. An environment of fear and punishment; however, only causes a disconnect and ultimately leads to decreased productivity and high turnover. Frankly, members of the leadership team who don't get this, shouldn't be in leadership at all.
