    I have been working at CalOptima full-time

    Pros

    I've been at CalOptima for more than 15 years, and it's the best place I've ever worked in my 45+ year work history. They are mission-focused and care about their employees.

    Cons

    Salaries may not quite measure up to private sector jobs, but the benefits are great! I've had a few not-so-nice managers, but for the past three years, my director and manager are great. We have a good department, and I work on a great team. With more than 1,100 employees, you have to expect that not all of them will be gems.

    Advice to Management

    There seems to be a lot of turnover, and I think that salaries may be an issue. Perhaps if management bumped up the base salaries of rank and file employees, people would stay longer and not just use CalOptima as a stepping stone. There have been recent HR staffing changes, which I hope will make HR more accessible and responsive.

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at CalOptima.

    Interview

    I received a call from a senior recruiter promptly after submitting my application. Recruiter was extremely helpful and caring. She took the time to see if the position was a good match. By far one of the best recruiting experiences I’ve had in my professional career. Appears to be a great place to work.
