    I have been working at Benefitfocus full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Mason, Ray and EVERY leader and manager are busting their butts to take care of us and our business. Every single associate. Every single customer. And every single shareholder. I have worked for many employers in my time and have never experienced this level of drive, commitment and openness. We are a small company. We work hard. We care deeply for each other. We try to do the right thing. We screw things up sometimes - like all companies.

    Cons

    We have a handful (perhaps several handfuls) of associates who need to move on from Benefitfocus. Their actions are selfish and disruptive to associates and to customers. It appears they have lost sight of the realities of running a business and taking care of each other. Most everyone here is a high performer AND a team player. It is obvious when you don’t pull your weight.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you! We are all pulling together as best we can. Just like we must take care of our families first - most of us recognize you have the best interest of our business in hand - and there are many dependencies to balance. Continue to Stay open and transparent as we move through these months.
