    Pros

    Great environment! Great development opportunities! Cubicle environment, even senior management is in cubicles!

    There is sometimes a lack of planning. They like to execute projects and then figure out logistics after they launch.

    I worked at eHealth

    Pros

    HQ has around 200+ people, small but comfortable, nice break room with lots of free snacks and drinks.

    Cons

    Too many "VP", "Engineer" titles, Sr manager doesn't have a right knowledge to manage the team. Very few board meeting, executives hide the real financial information about the company and lay off people in all sudden. Very limited career opportunity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company needs real talent people. Remove the "VP" "Engineer" title since there are too many employees are not qualify.

    I have been working at eHealth full-time

    Pros

    Management cares, good training, good benefits, 401k contribution, feedback is heard and often time implemented, lots of PTO days given out each year

    Cons

    Pay scale changes constantly, job requirements unclear, new company so constantly trying out new things, too much time on phone

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I wish that they would give a little bit more thought to the compensation of their employees. Job requires hard work and cutting the pay of top performers does not create good moral.

    Pros

    competitive pay

    Cons

    fall in line
    you are a number to management and aren't listened to about new creative ideas
    what have you done for me know mentality. Past accomplishments and achievements are quickly overlooked.
    Wants to be considered a professional sales organization, but lacks ability to provide innovation.

    Pros

    This is the largest Individual Health Insurance online broker in the country. If you are a former co-worker or family member of the executive team then it is a great place to work!

    Cons

    Over the past couple of years executive management has changed, and the focus has been to hire and expand the Product Management and PMO organizations with extreme emphasis on product development discipline. The number of PM and PMO personel has skyrocketed in return for a marginal improvement in process with less flexibility to adjust "on the dime." In an uncertain HealthCare industry rather than being lean with extreme focus on driving traffic, it is become overly obsessed with perfecting an Agile Development methodology. "We are not a software company, we are an online broker." Hiring over the past two years has become an obssession with bringing in and posturing former co-workers and family members (V.P. => EVP are cousins). Not afraid to fire, but yet no accountabliity all the way up and down the ladder. People walking around trying to find ways to justify their positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wall Street is slowly educating.

  10. Good Company to Work For

    Former Contractor - Anonymous Contractor in Mountain View, CA

    I worked at eHealth as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Immediate group was very congenial as well as other departments and employees I worked with. Many people had been with the company for years, and they usually extended a lot of their temps and contractors.

    Cons

    In some cases I found it to be somewhat siloed and disconnected which made it uncomfortable for a temp at times.

    I have been working at eHealth as a contractor

    Pros

    The company offers good work/life balance. In general, employees are smart and motivated, team oriented. The management is invested in the well being of the employee. The company is large but not huge. It has a start-up feeling, in the sense that employees can make a personal contribution and feel that are making a difference.

    Cons

    Health insurance market has been rocketed by ObamaCare. It's still trying to find its bearing making the overall environment uneven. The ride can be bumpy and the business side will reflect that.
