    I worked at StayWell Health full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Experience in a corporate atmosphere. Onsite fitness center. Great people. The industry and the goal of this company makes you proud to work for them.

    Cons

    Communication throughout entire company is a little fuzzy. Upper management needs to work on employee morale. Recently the business seems to be going through some hard times with re-organizing.

    Pros

    Flexible work hours in most cases. Ability to work from home if needed. Business casual.

    Cons

    Management doesn't have a clue as to what's going on on the ground level. Talented people have left or were "restructured" out of a job. Non-talented get promoted. No sense of company direction. No new development.

    Advice to Management

    Get real. Get down to ground level and talk with your employees one-to-one. Ask for HONEST feedback. Stop the favoritism and treat all employees equally based on actual merit.

    Pros

    StayWell manages to find great people who are fun to work with.

    Cons

    The systems are outdated, mismatched and have band-aids all over them. It makes it very difficult to deliver a product when the systems do not cooperate or talk with each other. Micro-managed! Far too many meetings for a productive work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Less meetings and better software.

    Pros

    Direct management and teammate support was pleasant and rewarding. Ability to work virtually also a perk.

    Cons

    Benefits awful, leadership rarely backs or encourages operational support teams, serious lack of change management skills and opportunities to advance. The tight-knit cliques within the organization make for a very "high school like" vibe.

    Pros

    Free water. Some give aways for cups/etc.Some friendships made.

    Cons

    Entire department is or has already gone the way of having no FTE's and having everyone be from a temp agency. Cheaper for them, easier to fire rather than train well. Your life and time is measured, VERY strictly. Part 1: The company promotes health improvement outside and inside the company. Drinking enough water "Campaigns" and eating X amount of meals/foods. Yet you are told you can’t go to the bathroom except on a scheduled break or you are stealing company time. Literally getting up to pee, that’s stealing unless on one of your two, 15 minute breaks/lunch. More than one employee quit because they were trying to drink more water then told NOT to use the bathroom so much. Management looked closely at the OSHA laws in order to adhere to this: “The employer may not impose unreasonable restrictions on employee use of the facilities.” This is interpreted as the two 15 minute breaks/lunch or if you get a letter from a doctor saying you may need to urinate more than twice in an 8 hour period, they cut your 15 minute breaks into 5 minute breaks, on the hour, every hour. Your lunch can be adjusted as well if you need more time. Your choice. Part 2: The department became crazy about time stealing to an extreme. They will not let you work through your break and earn a little extra time/OT. Software was installed monitor on the computers to watch/record you as you work (claim it’s for training.) ---Pro tip, open up your bank account/medical login website and have it on at random times while you work and they can’t record you/look as it is some kind of privacy issue (go figure!) Phone calls were/are recorded as well. As for the work, you can become a subject matter expert in all companies/information, be the person people look to for answers if they need help/clarification (essentially a Lead/supervisor) and you are still a lowly uneducated kid that will be treated accordingly. The answering of the phone calls is mind numbing. I was surfing the watching movies on my IPOD, web, reading news, facebooking, etc while “helping” people with the easy password unlocks and questions they had regarding program information. Advancement leans towards women. If you are a man, tough luck. The company prefers 9 out of 10 times to advance females.

    Advice to Management

    Read a book on maturity and respect for your fellow humans.
