    Pros

    Culture, work-life balance, friendly co-workers. Every time I talk about NaviNet to my friends they say "what is this-- Google?" Free coffee, pizza, beer, and ice cream. Monthly chair massages. Volunteer opportunities. Casual dress; flip-flops and hoodies are regular office wear here. Ping-pong, basketball, ladder ball, and people only mildly make fun of me for sucking at them. People are awesome and welcoming. Lots of time off and flexible work-from-home time. Great location, especially for transportation and lunch options (sushi, chinese, and hot-pot, oh my).

    Cons

    Work is challenging, but in a good way!

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up. If you continue to feed me pizza and beer, I will continue to produce awesome results.

    Pros

    A great culture to work in. Amazing resources to use to learn anything about the company. Everyone is willing to help the next person out. Casual dress and frequent catered lunches.

    Cons

    As the company is growing rapidly, the communication between teams is sometimes lacking. This may cause delays or confusion of what is expected of each other.

    Pros

    The culture at NaviNet is very collaborative and open from the top down. It is the first place I have worked in fifteen years in my career where it is likely to run into the CEO getting coffee in the kitchen (or refilling the coffee cups in the kitchen!). Frank Ingari sets a tone that the rest of the leadership here follows which includes loving what you do, being valued where you work and balancing that work passion with your life outside of the office. We have monthly Town Halls where we learn about what is happening on a corporate level a well as individual departments...questions are welcome and joking encouraged. It truly sets a tone of being in this together and given all of the developments and changes-it makes for an exciting time to work at NaviNet.

    Cons

    People stay at NaviNet for a long time-which is a pro, but it can be tough for newer hires to learn the ropes. I think it is something that is continuously improving as we grow though.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to value the talent that is here and make sure the successes of individuals and teams are celebrated and acknowledged.

    Pros

    The culture and atmosphere at NaviNet is truly unique; from pizza & beer Fridays, to the casual dress and Town Hall monthly meetings with EVERYONE in the office. However, NaviNet reaches beyond this to truly embrace an inclusive community. Different departments are encouraged to collaborate; both informally, and formally through the NaviNet sponsored Off the Grid competition every year. The office is an open format and you can feel a positive buzz as people communicate in groups and work toward their projects. Coming from a large top-tier corporate law firm, this organization has the right mix of focus, energy, collaboration, encouragement, and positive dynamics.

    Cons

    According to NaviNet's history, we are still overcoming some "old culture" mentality and embracing the new direction that is coming from top management. Therefore, many reviews from years past do not accurately reflect the current state of the organization. This is an active environment; it is extremely dynamic and ever-changing as it grows to be an industry leader. This can naturally produce pressure and fatigue over the long stretch. However, I do think that NaviNet leaders try to address this with other incentive programs.

    Advice to Management

    The current management at NaviNet is extremely relevant and in touch with the organization. There is a direct line from the top/down, and all of the management and executive team are extremely approachable and open to feedback. NaviNet invests an incredible amount of energy in their employees, and this translates to a sense of inclusion and being part of the team.

    Pros

    What I like most about NaviNet is the outstanding technology that we use here. We have a highly collaborative environment where there are designated individuals for every aspect of the software development process. We use lean method and I mean seriously the real thing, and we have collective ownership to the code/process/documentation. The team is very friendly and highly technical. Can it get better than that?

    Cons

    Large team and not everyone adhering to the proper standards and practices

    Pros

    Working within incredibly bright highly motivated colleagues on the future of healthcare collaboration that lowers costs and improves patient outcomes. Quality, innovation, and continuous improvement are part of the cultural fabric at NaviNet. Hiring standards are very high and every candidate must pass the NaviNet Audition which involves defining a solution based on a set of requirements with several NaviNet Staff. The audition is customized to the type of position (e.g. Software Engineering, User Experience or Product Development). This rigorous interview process insures only best candidates are hired. NaviNet holds an Off The Grid (OTG) event once a year where work is stopped and the staff forms small teams to work on innovative ideas for two days (hence off the grid). These projects are presented to the company on the third day, judged, and prizes are awarded. Many of these ideas make their way back into the Product Development Life-cycle. The salary and benefits are competitive and it is hard to beat the location, three blocks from South Station - Boston, MA. In fact, most of the staff at the organization uses public transportation with quite a few cycling in from the surrounding areas. The casual dress and Beer Friday's are icing on the cake.

    Cons

    There is quite a bit of technical debt that has been accumulated over the years but with the transition from a service organization to a product organization that debt should be easier to refactor. replace or retire.

    Pros

    Collaborative work environment, they hire the "right" people Not political Good benefits, vacation time, work-life balance, etc.

    Cons

    Company still seems to be ramping up, transitioning to productized platform Feels like an entrepreneurial company still, which may not be the perfect fit for everyone (I like it)

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. Engage your employees with the vision of the company and the mission to improve healthcare

    You bring up a valuable point regarding our ramp up efforts. We think and feel like a start up with an "all hands on deck" mentality and therefore, there's a lot of ambiguity. Like you, I enjoy this ... More

    Pros

    Most roles are flexible, the leadership gives you autonomy, there are many opportunities available. There is a lot to learn, many challenges to be had, and we are always improving. The vision / mission of the company is sound and people seem to care. I like feeling like I can go out for a beer with most people I work with Pizza and Beer Fridays, Lunches, Sporting activities, and great work functions I've had training every year I've worked at the company to help myself grow I've had a lot of opportunities to try new things and learn where my strengths are

    Cons

    Being operationally efficient is something that NaviNet still has a lot to improve on. We are transitioning I think very effectively from a Professional Services company only to a Product Company and Professional Services company. We still have a lot of people that are project focused, (i.e., there is a short term project with an end date...) without the mindset to be operationally focused for the long term. (i.e., this thing is going to live on for a long time and we have to support its success. There are some folks that are learning how to operate differently and others that will probably need to find something else to do for us to succeed.

    Advice to Management

    Invest a lot of time in the market listening and prioritizing with our customers their problems. Set a longer term vision Set challenging goals Ensure there is accountability and follow up

    Pros

    Work / life balance, compensation, location, team-oriented environment, benefits

    Cons

    Not for a person who does not embrace a fast-paced environment and does not have the ability or desire to juggle competing priorities. Also, in this competitive market, it's difficult to hire enough engineers.

    Pros

    All of the added perks raise employee moral. The company promotes creativity. It is a really fun place to work. I feel valued as an employee. The company sponcers many activites outside of the work place where employees and their families can spend time together and have fun. The atmosphere and culture at this company is great. Most people are friendly and willing to help you succeed. While it is a fun place to work, really important and market changing business takes place here. This company is definitely heading in the right direction.

    Cons

    At this time, I do not have anything negative to share about NaviNet.
