    Pros

    Some good colleagues but toxic culture

    Cons

    I frequently heard from clients "TriZetto is hard to work with" and "don't the various units communicate with our coordinate with each other?"

    Pros

    Working with smart teammates who are engaged with their projects, feeling like you are working on something that matters, opportunities to learn from others and advance within the company.

    Cons

    Despite project plans, day-to-day work always felt like we were reactive/fighting fires, and never had time to work on our projects. Deadlines were set, so everyone ended up putting in extra hours because of poor planning.

    Management always felt like a mess. Top execs weren't concerned about lower level employees, and placed unreasonable expectations on mid-level management. That in turn left mid-managers frustrated and they took it out on the developers. Morale was never very high.

    Compensation would have been okay--if it weren't for the constant required overtime hours .

    Advice to Management

    Corporate culture is very difficult to change if the executives aren't accountable for their decisions. Unrealistic expectations of what teams can accomplish combined with promises made to clients without consulting employees will only perpetuate the problems.

    Pros

    The Cognizant acquisition has lifted some of the cloud that was over our company's head. We no longer feel like we are being penny-pinched to death. There is a good core of people and the products are making slow but steady improvements.

    Cons

    We still tend to act like ten different companies sometimes, rather than present a unified face and development system. Turnover of upper management has been a constant over the past three years.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your resumes updated.

    Great experience until recent acquisition. Currently there seems to be a disregard for employee bandwidth.

    Pros

    Unlimited PTO, lots of corporate communication, visible leaders, training opportunities

    Cons

    Incompetent middle management, lack of documented on the job training, racial discrimination, severe nepotism

    Advice to Management

    Have focus groups that consist of members of your ground floor operations. People that deal directly with the users of your products, not just the people who pay the bill. Create measurable metrics for every department. Have a team lead and manager in the same city for each department. We need someone locally, above the supervisor level who has a genuine interest in our roles at Trizetto.

    Pros

    Great variety of products, with many of them innovative. Close team work, especially around its core Facets product line.

    Cons

    A lot of changes with most of the Erisco team gone. Distinctive separation of operations, resources and processes between old Facets and newer product lines. We are too big and well establish to fail mentality.

    Advice to Management

    Greater transparency, improved communication and sharing of the vision / plan across levels.

    Pros

    Interesting industry, Work from home opportunities

    Cons

    You are expected to schmooze leadership if you want to do well here. It's more about the image you create for yourself than the quality or quantity of the work you do.

    Advice to Management

    Realize there's only room enough for a few egos. Figure out who is doing the work well and reward them-not the people who are wasting time and resources trumpeting their work (work which is often attributable to someone else)
