    I have been working at Inovalon for more than a year

    Pros

    The work that you do requires a lot of sitting down in front of a computer and most of the time you are at home which is a positive. You do travel when the job requires you to go to a site but the company reimburses for mileage. The hours of this job varies, during the summer it is busy but the winter time no jobs.

    Cons

    When I first started with this company they seem to care about their employees but as time went on they only cared about how many times the company's name was mentioned in the newspaper.

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

    Pros

    Working from home with no travel is definitely a plus.

    Cons

    Always feel like you are going to be laid off or fired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start listening to employees - stop sending everything " up the chain". One hand doesn't know what the other is doing !

    I worked at Inovalon full-time

    Pros

    Smart and hardworking people to work with.

    Cons

    Smart and hardworking people stuck in working for an incompetent CTO who cannot differentiate between what is digital and analog. Brought his incompetent bunch to the company to bring havoc and discontent. Confuses software development with payphone repair, totally clueless. Was a reject from a smart telecom company (they were smart before they fired him).

    Does not care about staff and does not understand that leadership is motivating people and make people work with you because they believe your vision, aligned with your goals and all I can see is people spending their time trying to find another job to get as far from Inovalon because they do not trust you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start doing some skip level meetings and ask about how they feel about their leadership.

    Pros

    Free parking is a plus.

    Cons

    The C-Suite does not jump into the affairs of the lower level management and anything goes at this company.

    I have been working at Inovalon full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The pros of the company are, the location from my home was very near, some of my coworkers, benefits, compensations was okay.

    Cons

    The office culture is definitely for employees striving for work life balance. The management of some teams are very stressful. Joining the company it was made like a calm work life balanced company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really train the management to be able to understand work life balance if not alot of great employees will leave.

    I have been working at Inovalon for less than a year

    Pros

    I really enjoy the work I do here and I believe in the product I support. The majority of the people I work with are highly intelligent. The work is challenging and fast paced. You will learn a lot if you are open to it. The PTO is available for use on your 91st day of employment which is really great because you're definitely going to need to use it to stay recharged (and to look for another job). There are plenty of opportunities for advancement in other areas, but that's because the turnover rates are very high.

    Cons

    I cannot tell you the number of employees I've seen resign and I've only been employed here for 6 months. In my department and throughout the company, people are definitely overworked, stressed and hard work is not appreciated or acknowledged. You can expect to work very long hours daily without any extra compensation. The pay is ok but insufficient for the workload you are expected to maintain. The benefits package is ok but it could be a lot better. If you expect to have a life outside of Inovalon, then this is probably not the best place for you. This is definitely not the place for someone who cares about having a home life and a family.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on your employees. Pay attention to the reasons why they are leaving. Inovalon has the potential to be a great company but that will never happen if you don't find a way to attract and retain skilled and valuable employees.

    Pros

    Good location / nice office

    Cons

    It's all about Inovalon and nothing about their employees. The recruiters are slick in their approach. When you think something is off and red flags are in your face - GO with that. Biggest regret that I left my company for this mess. The recruiters are not truthful. I was told the turnover was bad and it is horrific. Biggest regret and I will be exiting with less than 8 months. Do walk but RUN.

    I have been working at Inovalon

    Pros

    professional work environment, industry leader, hard working peers

    Cons

    no culture.
    a company that sells software should cater to their development and IT staff - this is not the case.
    compensation is based on a percentage increase more than performance based this includes a promotion. If you start behind, you will be behind.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    invest more in your people. your office's are drab. your employees are dull. your software reflects that.
