    I have been working at ActiveHealth Management (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    As one of two physicians who work for AHM in High Point, NC, this review is to refute the review of another party listed as "Medical Officer" who is neither of us and has posted on this site. Glass door has been asked to remove or revise that review but has refused to do so.

    ActiveHealth is an innovative and supportive place to work. We have best-in-class care management, consumer engagement, and clinical analytic capabilities and serve millions of members representing a variety of clients from private sector to large government entities.
    Employees are engaged, their input valued, and are important contributors to the constant cycle of improvement that is our hallmark.
    Customers often cite our agility, transparency and posture of partnership as key differentiators from others in the marketplace.
    In particular, the team in High Point, NC is very high performing. We have a collaborative culture of excellence and inclusion that is promoted by employees at all levels of the organization. Senior leadership is adept at communicating priorities and strategy enabling all to relate their contributions to the progress of the whole.

    Cons

    Within AHM and its parent company there is a lot of change occurring and on the horizon. This is really an opportunity for us to grow, to change and further differentiate our expertise. So far we are meeting and beating these challenges.

    Advice to Management

    Continue strong, effective and frequent communications efforts engaging all areas of the company

    Please get rid of the fools who hang around playing cheap office politics and you will start doing well.

    I have been working at ActiveHealth Management full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Aetna pay and some benefits.
    Good location for NY office.
    Generally nice people.
    That's about it but there's a 20 word minimum.

    Cons

    Aetna never figured out exactly what they wanted to do with ActiveHealth and it has been a bit of a pawn/hot potato/under appreciated asset since they acquired it. The main rules engine has been underinvested in and is beginning to crumble. The digital offerings are third rate and the market is no longer interested. The only new business in years is a small state deal.

    Advice to Management

    All the ones who would have listened are gone so what's the point?

    I worked at ActiveHealth Management full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working with employees to assist in reaching their health and wellness goals. Instructing group coaching sessions and presentations on a variety of topics.

    Cons

    Here are a list of concerns. Unrealistic expectations coupled with a lack of clearly set expectations, lack of support from manager, lack of transparency, red tape, confusion on role and decision makers, and a lack of accountability across the entire division. Active Health let’s the accounts make the decisions and run the show.

    Also, training is not applicable to positions and no direction is given while the account tries to make the decisions on what needs to be done (large corporation requirements). You are unable to instruct fitness type classes due to liability reasons from the company, unless your manager says it’s okay. This leads to more confusion and ambiguity across the role and what you can actually do.

    In addition, you need to be prepared for yearly audits that take up months of your physical and emotional time as you are judged on every decision you have made weather or not it was in your control.

    They have no problem keeping you uninformed such as interviewing your replacement and then asking you to train them before you leave.

    Advice to Management

    Do what’s right for your team and do what’s right for the company rather than being afraid of keeping a large account. In the end, if you’re not running the show then are you really being a health management company or are you a place holder for a company right off?

    Look elsewhere because there are other health and wellness programs that do what’s right and stand up for their team. (Premise Health, Optium, and Health Plus One)

    I worked at ActiveHealth Management (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They promised all sorts of management support for software developers. They talked the talk.

    Cons

    They did not walk the walk. They pushed agile programming, but refused to do anything to move the blockades. Specifically, in my case, they had major performance problems and decreed that to be the highest priority project. Then, they refused to force other teams to give us the resources we needed to fix the issues. When the time ran out, they couldn't understand why the work wasn't completely done.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that you are, in large part, running a software development shop, and not just an insurance company; they need to be run differently in order to be run effectively!
