    Good place to work

    Pros

    Really great work/life balance, company values aren't just talk, they live by them which is awesome. You get a whole lot of PTO from the start.

    Cons

    The company is a little tight on resources, so it's really tough to get promotions or a decent raise. Getting more staff resource on your team is really tough as well, even if you need it so you always have lots of work to do.

    Great pay, but Executives are not on the same page.

    Pros

    Culture, Pay, Benefits are or were great. Really enjoyed working with most folks there. Very supportive of Veterans.

    Cons

    Benefits are in decline due to company trajectory. Culture created by CEO is deteriorating due to a general lack of trust in Executive management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reset the Executive cast and focus again on culture fits. Encourage higher level of WFH adoption throughout.
    Eliminate site specific SOP's/culture, there needs to be more of a focus on bringing regions online together in one voice.

    Pros

    The benefits are great for their employees, but that's about it.

    Cons

    There is not work ethic or diversity in this company. Human Resources is a joke. If you ever have an issue and call to set up an appointment with them, they ask that you communicate via email. So unprofessional. Their lack of old school training and use of vocabulary is hideous. They do not have a good approach of training staff in any of the departments. If they feel you are not a good fit they make sure to make your job miserable. They like to hire staff and push them to leave or feel unwelcome that way they don't have to pay you unemployment benefits. I seen this happen with many new hires leaving sooner than later.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is no room for advancement. They like to keep you in the same place of work, move you around to different departments, but for moving up in a management position, no way unless you know someone in a hire position.

    Started out well but went downhill when the company decided to go into acquisition mode and hired new management.

    I worked at PacificSource full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The salaries are comparable to other health plans but tend to be lower because of the location of the company. Middle level management seems to work well.

    Cons

    HR does not support its employees. Senior management is not willing to work with his employees and help them succeed. Everything works well unless you go against the wishes of key individuals in the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be careful on who you hire into senior positions.

    Pros

    Good employee benefits, good customer service,

    Cons

    Not very good with acquisitions and making staff feel welcome, Strategy is pretty "old school", No "stepping out of the box"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more creative
    Recognize folks for the content of what they do and not by appearances
