For career-minded individuals focusing on professional development and advancement:
I have been working at Central California Alliance for Health full-time
The mission and vision of the company is what drew me here. I wanted a company where I could personally make a difference. I get to do that every day. Health care is a good choice for people that want to impact someone else’s life. That’s why I’m in this profession and the Alliance was a good place for me to land. Pay is great and so are benefits. A ten percent contribution (not match…contribution) to the 401 account is unheard of. PTO is very generous. The work/life balance program here is very good. I love having an onsite gym. I see a strong leadership team here. I feel supported in my work and a lot of my coworkers feel the same. Leadership keeps staff informed by having meetings for all employees quarterly. The culture here is one I have not experienced before. Like a family almost. Lots of people have close relationships. The company does a lot for staff with all the little perks. I think our office is in a beautiful natural setting. I like my walks outside on my breaks. I like also how the Alliance is forward thinking, especially with the sustainability efforts and solar. This helps the environment and saves the company money. Environmental protections are important to me and I like this aspect of the company.
I read some of the recent reviews after the restructure announcement from November and wonder if those people work for the same employer as me. I don’t see power struggles at the leadership level. Personally I get quite a lot of help from my supervisor when I need it. HR has been helpful and responsive when I’ve contacted them. My interview and offer process was good. The onboarding program at the Alliance is one of the best I’ve ever had.
There were layoffs last month and friends of mine who were laid off told me they got severance, health insurance and help with finding new work. The CEO had a company meeting that day and explained the situation. I think that no one likes layoffs but this was done a lot better than in other companies I have been at and most people laid off at my former company didn’t get a severance package at all. The Alliance did it right in my opinion. I’d prefer a management team that can make hard decisions to address too many employees instead keeping people around who didn’t have work to do. I think that with a new CEO and a new COO the restructure could have been predicted. That’s what usually happens when some new leadership comes on at least in my experience at prior companies. I’ve seen reorgs every year at some places.
Traffic to and from work. Not much the company can do about that but I’m telecommuting now so that helps. I am sad about the fruit and the quarterly fitness challenge going away but they said it was a cost cutting measure. Better that then increasing health insurance or cutting other very important benefits.
Advice to Management
The Alliance is a great place to be. It is not perfect but I really enjoy being here and doing some important and rewarding work that helps others. My advice is to just keep doing the hard work so we can continue to deliver care to our members. “It’s all about the member.”
I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Central California Alliance for Health (Scotts Valley, CA) in January 2018.
1 Phone interview, an in-person 2 panel interview, and an in-person 4 panel interview, 2 skills assessments. All interviews were very structured with pre-determined questions. From first interest email to finish was 3 months.
It was a bit stressful trying to find out if you made it to the next step in the interview (several weeks between interview and acknowledgement of advancement to next step) and it felt like a really long process. Then once you finished the interviews, the reference checks to 2 weeks and the background check another 2 weeks. This felt like a very tough position to obtain.
