Featured Review

Current Employee - Customer Success Specialist

I have been working at Benefitfocus full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

The best part is working with smart colleagues who become your best friends. It’s a challenging work environment which isn’t for everyone but I like. It’s a great first job and you will learn a lot.

Cons

The company is under-competitive on compensation even before COVID. Until recently, management and poor leadership were the biggest cons. The previous CEO tanked the company culture & created an... environment where no one could succeed. With a new CEO I am optimistic that it’s changing, we are now focusing on the right priorities & that the once thriving culture that made Benefitfocus a great place to work will come back.

Advice to Management

Increase pay & bring back culture to stay competitive when it comes to associate recruitment & retention, success will follow. Also continue the renewed focus on delivering values customers.
