    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 Management

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

    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 Management

    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.


  3. Lots of growth and opportunity

    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 Management

    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.

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

    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.

    Pros

    Some of the most dedicated people working to help the most needy frost the poisoned cake of private health insurance.

    Cons

    Everyone is very nice, even when they are nasty

    Advice to Management

    There is no unified goal - sharing work and blame would go a long way. And Christina Severin is not the president - she is at BI now
