    Current Employee - Software Engineer

    I have been working at NaviNet full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Casual dress, Beer Friday, Engineering

    Cons

    Way too much politics, way too much favoritism, work-life balance exists for some..not all..lack of consistency or clear vision. Priorities shift almost daily...Great exaggeration of size of network..it is not America's largest health care network! Surprised company has not been called out on this. Archaic software...company website is atrocious. Company spends money recklessly. Bullying is still allowed..and still has not been rooted out in years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look under the hood and address the problems. Stop living in denial.

    Pros

    Great CEO, most passionate and intelligent employees I've ever worked with, and a combination of interesting work and an appreciation for work-life balance. I have seen a number of colleagues receive promotions over the years and I appreciate the opportunities given to internal staff.

    Cons

    Going through changes and the whole company isn't quite there yet - some employees still focused on the NaviNet of the past.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to engage employees throughout the organization to leverage everyone's strengths!

    Pros

    The culture at NaviNet is outstanding. Relaxed work environment - casual dress, free coffee/pizza etc. There is a definite understanding of work life balance with liberal work from home and flexible hours.

    The vision of the company is aligning well with the future of the healthcare industry.

    Cons

    There is still a bit of a "start up" mentality in the organization but it has been recognized. Senior management is supportive of working towards a more standardized organization but it takes time.

    Pros

    Casual Dress Code
    Beer Fridays
    Free Pizzza

    Cons

    Micromanagment
    Management
    Having to submit 3 tickets just to get access to a machine.
    Current software is a complete disaster
    Too many hoops to jump through just to get something simple done
    No training

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of middle management, make it easier for developers to gain access to needs. It is impossible to finish a task when you are still waiting on permissions. Too many hoops to jump through via ticketing system just to get something done within the company. Current version of software is a spaghetti duct tape mess. I hope their new version is scalable.

    I worked at NaviNet full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good benefits, easily accessible from several MBTA lines, lots of good food in the immediate area.

    Cons

    Certain managers are clueless (shift-managers and middle management), poor people-management skills, very few coherent directives on what can be improved in the environment. Some folks need to be dropped like a bad habit, others need intellectual and environmental nourishment to survive and thrive. Stifling day-to-day activities, very little actual innovation occurring. Would not recommend the Operations wing of the department to prospective applicants.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Drop ineffective/combative managers, offer direct rewards and incentives to employees to further their skills, update the platform to be more fault-tolerant to release the project and development personnel to do what they were paid to do (innovate), and stop pretending like the organization isn't hemorrhaging employees and isn't in trouble. It's looking like an outright acquisition is more and more likely as time goes on.

    Pros

    Good location
    Casual dress code
    Fast paced

    Cons

    Cut throat company culture that promotes management by fear
    Toxic work environment on many levels
    Only the arrogant are promoted - all flash no substance
    Hard work and knowledge is not valued in this environment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Enough with the "if you don't like it here, leave" mentality. Employees deserve more than that.

    Company is more focused on the bottom line than creating a quality work environment.

    I worked at NaviNet

    Pros

    - Able to work remotely, although the rules are fuzzy.
    - Beer Fridays
    - Casual dress code
    - Good location

    Cons

    - Odd work culture - People pass you in the hall w/o even saying hello, and supervisors (at least on my team) are completely disconnected from team.
    - Too much bureaucracy/Indecisive management.
    - Too many meeting about nothing.
    - Inconsistent with rules - There are no set work hours, so some people only work 5 hour days and/or take advantage of working remotely without approval from HR (and with no repercussions).
    - Pay and benefits are not on-par with others in the area.
    - Management will purposefully mislead employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Be honest with employees
    - Pay more competitive wages and better benefits
    - Allow employees to have more input on company
    - Be more inspiring
