      Pros

      Great people Great technology Some solid leadership Work done is beneficial for the industry

      Cons

      At times, benefitfocus has had a vision thats a bit of a "moving target". Lots of restructures, lots of change to focus which causes a lag in how quickly things change or how quickly needed functionality is pushed out.

      A great opportunity if you need a job and are just looking for a paycheck.

      Pros

      You can meet some great people here. Pay was not terrible if you fought for a decent wage. Latest CFO seems to have his head on straight and genuinely cares about employees.

      Cons

      -Culture based in lack of respect for the individual, cloak and dagger actions. - CEO surrounds himself with "yes" people, and is a micromanager. - Very few perks of the job. - No work/life balance for most employees. - General unhappiness and lack of enthusiasm radiate through the company. - little follow through from leadership... most things are just talk. - Reorgs on reorgs on top of more reorgs. Get ready for multiple managers in a year who can't help you progress. - Managers are not supported and overworked. They often oversee too many reports and do not have the time or capacity to even have monthly meetings with their direct reports. They are too busy running from leadership meeting to leadership meeting to even deal with their actual job of managing a team. - Meetings all day with no real outcomes, no meeting efficiency or standards. - This company promotes itself to candidates on old ideals that are no longer true. - Celebrating is not an aspect of this company.

      Pros

      Great people, colleagues to work with. A good customer base.

      Cons

      Too many departments, processes. The company recently reduced their workforce making it a bit insecure. But that is not surprising given the Pandemic situation.

      Company concerned with making management jobs easier at the sake of clients and employees

      Pros

      You’ll work with great people with lots of energy. They do a good job of hiring good people who want to work together and band together to get the work done despite management.

      Cons

      Management is unconcerned about how their decisions affect employees. They aren’t in touch with what employees jobs are how to make them better. There is no training or help from management on how to do your job. Management believes that by just getting more data to report on it will make the company better and refuse to listen to their employees about what true pinch points are.

      Pros

      Fun culture, great people, nice facilities

      Cons

      Benefits are lacking for a company that is in the benefits industry. Leadership needs to be more transparent. No training for anything, learn on the fly
