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

    Pros

    - The company culture is very positive, constructive, and friendly.
    - The company puts its employees first, and makes you feel like you matter. There's plenty of health/wellness programs, investment in training, and employee rewards.
    - There's lots of potential for advancement! Hard work and good ideas matter more than hierarchy or office politics.
    - It's a non-profit that makes a positive contribution to the community.

    Cons

    - Sometimes things are done in a messy, slipshod way. You might find yourself stumbling over lots of outgrown bandages.
    - It can be very confusing to get a handle on proper procedure. There's a lack of documentation, with too many policies left unwritten or written vaguely.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company needs more communication and information sharing between departments. It needs a better focus on long-term solutions, instead of just getting through the next crisis.

    I have been working at Network Health full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    One of the company's core values states that their employees are their "greatest asset." From their very aggressive internal job posting policy to their benefits package they really seem to take this statement seriously. There is quite a bit of opportunity for professional growth and the mission of the company is very admirable.

    Cons

    Some policies and procedures are hold-overs from when the company was smaller. This seems to be something of a case of "growing pains" since the company has grown substantially over the last few years. It seems as though leadership is working to correct these issues so I am sure things will get better in time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to remember that the way things were done yesterday may no longer work today or tomorrow.

    I have been working at Network Health

    Pros

    Good salary
    Average benefits
    Opportunity for growth

    Cons

    Poor leadership at manager and director level
    Directors reward managers who are publicly offensive and disrespectful
    Senior leadership from Network Health does not address real issues, avoid any conflict

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Directors and managers need better leadership training, and specifically should not reward managers who fail to display professionalism; check manager, and director social media forums to address any inappropriate postings.

    Former Contractor - Analyst in Medford, MA

    I worked at Network Health as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    - Friendly co-workers
    - Great organization mission, which everyone believes in. It's not just lip service.
    - Everyone is encouraged to participate in fundraising events, and the company usually matches the funds that the employees raise

    Cons

    - Some employees really resent contractors and do their best to undermine them, even at the risk of derailing critical projects
    - There are competing priorities which makes it difficult to keep focus on projects
    - Work / life balance is out of whack, and employees are burning out

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work with your focus on the company mission, but also consider how to encourage your most talented employees to stick around.

    I worked at Network Health full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    By and large open lines of communication between business groups. Flexible scheduling and remote workforce encouraged. Operates with a nimble attitude despite the size of the company.

    Cons

    Some silo-ing and political turf depending on the department. Parent company dictates a lot of policy and process without the benefit of being in the trenches.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep moving towards a mobile/remote workforce, and stand up to the parent company to defend the right course of action.

    I have been working at Network Health full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The culture and people are great. There is a cooperative spirit that I have rarely seen at other organizations. The benefits are at least good, though at time of writing the salaries seem to lack by comparison to for-profit organizations.
    There is considerable effort given to shuffle people around internally to take advantage of new opportunities for internal promotion or growth rather than lose experienced individuals.

    Cons

    It is often hard to figure out what the number 1 priority is -- company growth vs company stability vs auditing or compliance requirements.
    Top-down communications between sr leadership to those below director seems to be sparse.
    Project portfolio every year is huge. It's often hard to complete 100% of a project since we quickly start new ones or they drag on for longer than anticipated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's easy to believe that because you are very familiar with the strategy, direction or any change that is coming that people further down the reporting chain are as well, but this is not the case. I'd rather see more communication down than less and this we could all use a little more.
