    I have been working at Cambia Health Solutions full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity. Lots of experience. Lots of platform exposure. Work from home.

    Cons

    Middle management is a political s---hole. Minimize exposure and life is good as an individual contributor. I have had 4 outstanding managers, 1 good manager, and 2 terrible managers here (lot of re-orgs and manager turnover plus couple of job moves I made = 1 new manager per year on average...would prefer 2-3 years per manager).

    Advice to Management

    Get middle management all rowing in the same direction...there is an awful lot of unnecessary political strife in this layer.

    I have been working at Cambia Health Solutions full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    decent insurance, decent PTO bank, annual bonus, good coworkers, excellent cafeteria with home made organic choices, close walk to PSU, public transit, etc.

    Cons

    equal pay doesn't exist here... men get paid MUCH more money for the same job than women do, paying to park in downtown Portland is $300/mo with no assistance/reimbursement, benefits are VERY expensive (about 1/2 my check for my benefits package for family coverage) and it's not worth what i pay for it.

    Advice to Management

    you drive people out... try having a little empathy & understanding. Would you like to be thrown a major project with no direction and told, 'figure it out' and then left to fend for yourself? An employee's motivation is a direct result of the sum of interactions with his/her manager and management is seriously lacking here!

    Pros

    Great pay, company supports social causes.

    Cons

    Politics politics politics. If you're not in the in crowd, you're out. The leadership turnover makes it so you have to prove yourself over and over.

    Advice to Management

    Look at the employees' history outside of Cambia, not just at Cambia. Take the time to get to know your team.

    I worked at Cambia Health Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Great potential for future vision. Company President has a strong moral compass and does well in transparently communicating challenges and future vision for the company.

    Cons

    Most processes are decades old. Using spreadsheets to track merit increases, only upgrading key data systems years after they have expired, not being proactive in business needs.

    Advice to Management

    You need to recognize that you are behind the curve (especially in HR) and your thinking and strategy are things that most companies put into place 15 years ago.

    Pros

    My peers care a lot about members. The company attracts many people who are passionate about what they do and work hard. The food offered in the cafeteria is amazing as are the gym benefits.

    Cons

    There appears to be a deliberate ambiguity to create strategic alignment between departments that could be working cross-functionally. The impact of that are territorial attitudes and gossiping. There is a fear of cannibalization.

    Advice to Management

    Either find a way to align your departments or make the clear cut decision to consolidate your departments.

    I have been working at Cambia Health Solutions full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Nonprofit health insurance gives warm fuzzies.
    Lots of positive change over the last 6 years in both technology and attitude.
    Attracts lots of people who care.
    Diverse workforce with involvement in all sorts of activities (PRIDE, Habitat for Humanity, etc).

    Cons

    Sometimes upper management layers lose track of reality.
    Our nonprofit status only applies to Regence (the insurance biz). The other companies under the umbrella are not nonprofit.
    Some projects are ultra-high visibility (member site), which can be stressful.

    Advice to Management

    Re-purpose a few management layers; there's a lot of cruft there. Empower the people doing the work more, we know what we're doing better than you do. :)
