    Pros

    Downtown location, some good coworkers, nice facilities, on-site gym

    Cons

    Out of touch and delusional senior management- by far the worst that I've ever experienced in my entire career; people are overworked without a clear direction on what they should be focused on; senior leadership has extremely poor communication to staff; staff is unclear on direction and strategy of the company

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your workers; try and make an effort to listen to staff and be aware of your surroundings and the environment;

    I worked at Cambia Health Solutions full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The only pro I can think of is the pay.

    Cons

    The way they treat someone with a medical problem is absurd. Myself, and another person had a severe medical issue & the only thing they said was in regards to going over breaks. As a verbal warning.
    The seniority plays a HUGE role. Don't ever try to report a manager, or managers friend for ANYTHING. oh boy will it be turned into your problem and get you in trouble.

    Hearsay should have no place in the work. Yet this company and gossip is what makes it or breaks it for you. I would recommend keeping to yourself as they will twist ANYTHING & EVERYTHING to their advantage to get you out.

    Exceeding past all your peers? Well if you're not in the cool guy crowd or in with all the managers watch your back. They will try to get you out as fast as they hired you.

    Have something you want to report? GET EVERYTHING IN WRITING & have a non biased third party there! If not they will believe the one with seniority & you won't have a chance to defend yourself.

    Advice to Management

    CARE ABOUT YOUR EMPLOYEES!

    Pros

    Wonderful team mates that work extremely hard, some teams are allowed to work remote.

    Cons

    Leadership has but the staff too lean and it is very difficult to keep up with the work load, and the work life balance is no longer reality. In order to be successful tasks must be completed and I find myself working very long days and weekends. Merit increases were a joke not even cost of living but executives paid themselves nice bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    If you are going to cut costs, reduce some of the executives who aren't doing their job.

    I worked at Cambia Health Solutions full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great 401k employer contributions (as a non-profit they dump extra $ in your 401k when they can). Ganz means well and has vision. DHS companies are a breath of fresh air to an otherwise stale and stagnant declining industry player.

    Cons

    Very unhealthy, antagonistic, and caustic work environment. When IT was fixed it shined a mirror on how screwed up the Regence business was; they didn't like the reflection and wiped the slate clean of those trying to help fix it. The legacy Regence insurance business, finance, and actuarial groups undermine any efforts that shows the true inefficiencies of the business. There is no upside in going into a DHS company as Cambia isn't looking to exit what is successful, they plan to keep those companies in its portfolio forever. Cambia underinvests in DHS companies as taking on other investors would dilute their stake, allowing competitors who are better financed to accelerate their growth faster than Cambia can.

    Advice to Management

    You have too many senior leaders in the very highest of the Regence ranks who pretend to agree with Ganz's vision then sabotage any efforts aimed at trying to change the status quo of a traditional, legacy insurance company.

    Pros

    Found some hard-working, real people trying to do the right thing.

    Cons

    Highly political and leadership will ruin your career without regard to actual performance. Watch your back or make sure someone has your back. Always have leverage or leave yourself exposed to unpredictable CYA actions of others.

    Advice to Management

    You are not that important.

    Pros

    Working from home one day a week.

    Cons

    Management values docility over ingenuity. It is impossible to implement processes that would keep them compliant or even in the 21st century, they would rather keep it status quo then change, even if that change would save them money in the long run. They do not provide educational opportunities or training, so if you want to expand your skills or knowledge - you are on your own.

    Advice to Management

    If you really want to change and retain top talent, drop all of your management and just start all over. Unless it is your goal to continue your talent-repelling management practices. Also, provide REAL educational benefits and training opportunities so that your workers can learn new skills and grow, it will benefit you in the long run because your so-called educational benefit is laughable.

    Pros

    The direct health solutions "businesses" and incompetent management haven't run the entire company out of business yet.

    Cons

    Nothing good to say about this company. It exploits its profitable businesses to subsidize its delusions of start-up greatness, while using up and spitting out employees rather than dealing with -- or even acknowledging -- any of its many management and operational problems.

    Advice to Management

    Happy, self-serving social media posts aren't going to fool anyone who's paying attention or even come close to solving a real problem. If your answer to negative reviews is to enlist your marketing and communications people to plant the same glowing review, you really don't get it at all. How about devoting the same energy toward developing products and services that actually work the way they're supposed to?
