    Pros

    Leadership is very energized about what the future holds and I think they do a good job of rallying the troops. There are monthly company-wide meetings where the execs and other leaders talk about what's being achieved, which helps each part of the organization stay connected and aware of how we're all contributing to the bigger picture. The message makes you feel like you're "in it together." Leaders are very human- they value work/life balance and are accessible and approachable. There's a lot of work- it's a lean organization so everyone carries a heavy load. If you're good at balancing and prioritizing and want to see your work's impact fast- this is a great and very fulfilling place to be. You're almost never the smartest person in the room which means there's constant opportunity to learn and grow (growth isn't always in the form of title.)

    Cons

    There's a lot of change happening- some of it's fast, some of it's slow. You have to be versatile and willing to put the team first to make it work and not everyone is committed to this. Leaders are really good at lifting up their own organizations but they could improve going to bat for their colleagues' teams.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Transparency is key. We're smart people- the more we know and understand why we're going in a certain direction, the more engaged and committed we are to reaching the goal.

    Pros

    The benefits and compensation here can be above average. The paternity/adoption leave is a huge plus and rather unique among the players in this space. The company clearly cares about its employees - the leadership team knows that they need to attract and retain top talent as NaviNet reshapes itself and its offerings. The culture is great - the newer folks bring a fun energy to the office and most of the veterans are very knowledgeable and clearly industry pros willing to share their experience with others.

    Cons

    Many new hires don't have strong healthcare expertise/background and come from other industries (financial, etc.). You often have to bring people up to speed on basic healthcare industry information (how things are done, why, etc.) in order to have a meaningful conversation. A handful of veteran employees are clinging to politics, the old ways of doing things, and resisting the evolution necessary to take NaviNet to the next level. There are management changes and shuffling of people a bit more often than I'd like to see. An employee's career path/growth opportunities once inside NaviNet can be unclear.

    Pros

    People and Teams are amazing. People care about the product and what they give their customers. How they service each other. Lots of fun extra benefits that aren't necessarily part of the benefits guides - but extra time off for a long weekend over a holiday, or amazing summer outings and holiday parties. Lots of thank yous on the company dime. Definitely not "cheapos".`

    Cons

    MICRO MANAGERS. Too many in the same area have caused lots of uproars. It's just not possible anymore. Senior leadership is out of touch. And the "next in line" to senior leadership just aren't qualified to lead. Way too many systems on out dated software (can we say VB6??) Three to four versions of the main product - no customer has the same version. It's impossible because there is no standard offering.
    Although the benefits were amazing.....the compensation was "in line" with the industry, but certainly nothing to brag about.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep growing your good people. Clean house with the upper third.

    I have been working at NaviNet full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    1. People are very willing to help
    2. Off the Grid .. 2 day workshop to bring in new ideas
    3. Use of cutting edge technology
    4. Good Location .. 5 mins walk from the Train Station , 1 min from the bus stop
    5. Work Life Balance
    6. A lot of extracurricular activities including chair massage and chair yoga
    7. Pizza Lunch Fridays and Beer nite Fridays
    8. Culture and Vision is amazing. Best I have seen in my entire working career.
    9. Exposure to a lot of free training sessions
    10. Very Very communicative about what is going on , new products etc.

    Cons

    Training Sucks.. They do not invest in training unless it is from a college. Sometimes you get stuck with legacy that can bring down the Morale. Only upper management get all the accolades and the worker bees are left with nothing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work and the communication!
    Take time to go deeper instead of just scratching the surface
    CEO needs to meet every individual and get to know their names on a more personal level .... at least once.

    I worked at NaviNet as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    There are so many great people in every part of this company, willing to help anyone at all with whatever problem they might have. Have a question, just ask it! Great location, a 5 minute walk from South Station. Every other Friday is pizza Friday!

    Cons

    I think it's important for as many people as possible to know what's happening in the company in general, but even with monthly company-wide meetings but most departments seem to be segmented and work separately.

    I have been working at NaviNet as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    I may not be the best judge since I only worked a short contract there. The pay was excellent with flexible working hours and a very knowledgeable staff. The company is changing it's business model and seems to have a good plan for the future. Lots of perks like free pizza and beer Fridays.

    Cons

    They are changing their business model which means some people may be stuck supporting dead end legacy code until it is finally retired.

    Don't Expect a Salary Increase

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at NaviNet full-time

    Pros

    the company has many good pluses and otherwise treats its employees fairly well.

    Cons

    Don't Expect a Salary Increase

    The company is selective about who gets an annual salary increase. Not everyone does. Even if you have a very good performance review - it is no guarantee that you will get an annual raise.

    The company has an undisclosed policy that only some individuals will get an increase from the pool of available funds and others will get nothing.

    Otherwise, the company has many good pluses - this is just not one of them.
