    Good company, Mid-level management needs work.

    Business Systems Analyst (Current Employee) Portland, OR

    ProsGreat company to work for. It gives you a lot of freedom to work from home if you choose. Gives a lot of perks like discounts on the local cafeteria and gym memberships.

    ConsManagement needs to work on how they treat their employees. At times you just feel like a number to them. Someone to pass work off to. And you sometimes have to work weekends.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay attention to your direct-reports.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    unethical, backstabbing, no loyalty to long time employees, horrible management

    Membership (Current Employee) Salem, OR

    Prosthere are no pros to working here. unless you only want a paycheck and don't care about what work you do

    Consthey preach ethics but show none. low pay compared to other companies, insurance premiums go up every year and coverage goes down. managers and supervisors constantly changing, let go of long time employees to save money, promote remote workers then fire them all to save a buck. very negative work environment, high stress and no rewards.

    Advice to Senior Managementupper management is part of the problem. they are FOR PROFIT and use people then toss them like trash. they act like they don't know what is going on, but that makes them very ignorant or bad managers for not making sure they know what is happening at lower levels. Don't hold meetings and lie to everyone.

    Cares little of their employees even less for their subscribers

    Analyst (Former Employee) Portland, OR

    Prossteady paycheck, just above poverty level

    ConsManagement is greedy and very top heavy. One department can have 6 or more people in management over it. Any budget cuts go to the hourly workers and then raise the members rates. Mark Ganz once said at an employee meeting people that have been here over 5 years are not the employees Regence wants

    Advice to Senior ManagementCollect your bonus and move on

    Top Heavy...but who's not..?

    Analyst (Former Employee)

    ProsDecent pay/benefits. Good sense of community within non-management staff. Direct leadership still in tune with concerns of staff.

    ConsStaff has no voice regarding decision making, very politically charged environment. Company ran like its on NYSE, not the 'non-profit' that it is. Executives very far removed from what's going on with operations, 'leadership' heavy organizational structure.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the "front line" staff, the reps taking calls, the people processing applications...Executive leadership is completely out of touch

    Great company for a good cause but will leave you wanting.

    Account Executive (Current Employee) Portland, OR

    ProsWonderful people to work with, both brilliant and personable. Everyday is an adventure with new challenges and lofty goals, so if you love strategic problem solving this i the place for you.

    ConsThe job environment has been sinking a little as the pressure of the economy and as public perception continue to press upon the insurance industry as a whole.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
