    I worked at Careoregon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    This is a company that cares about the members that it serves, is innovative in its solutions while conscious of the rising cost of healthcare.

    Cons

    Work experience varies by manager of department. One department had an incredible manager who led with vision and inspiration while the current manager is incompetent,insecure and micromanages. There is little opportunity for advancement and preferential treatment for few. Jobs have been created for some individuals while opportunities to develop skills and advance are denied to most others. Outside hires are preferred to promotion from within by those who actually have done the work and developed the systems to do so.

    Advice to Management

    Maintain the vision, compassion and commitment. Consider the cost of not developing opportunities for the people who have invested in your company through their hard work.

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

    Pros

    Universal transit pass provided to all employees. Very flexible work arrangements. Large enough to get lost in the mix. Decent overall compensation package (aka low salaries but other benefits are intended to make up for that). Great location in downtown Portland.

    Cons

    Avenues for growth in this company are severely limited. Cost of living adjustments are not keeping pace with actual changes in cost of living here in Portland. Methods for employee engagement are poorly thought out and end up feeling coerced and disingenuous. HR is often nonresponsive or slow to respond to employee requests. In the past, job descriptions were made up by employees who previously occupied positions and have been grandfathered into the general repository of JDs; what you have now is a mix of nonsense with clearly delineated job functions. Peoples titles, salaries, and supposed functions do not reflect the work they are actually doing. It's a complete mess and getting worse. Planning to jump ship as soon as I can.

    Advice to Management

    You have a high rate of turnover for a reason. Your managers and senior leaders are scrambling to make sense of the constant change you impose on the company. How can you care for the most vulnerable individuals in Oregon's population if you cannot take care of the 700 or so people that work for the organization? It's a poor excuse for health care and I am ashamed to have followed this company's vision and mission for so long.

    I worked at Careoregon full-time

    Pros

    CareOregon encourages innovative thinking. Good culture. Everyone was always happy to be there.

    Cons

    I would recommend more comprehensive understanding of training and background experience of management. More emphasis on MPA, MPH, MHA, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that managers have good leadership training, onsite mentors, and ongoing performance feedback support.

    I worked at Careoregon full-time

    Pros

    Great work/life balance commitment. Committed to employee education and innovation. Understanding of family commitments, great people with a purpose.

    Cons

    CareOregon is constantly expanding and innovating. If you are not good with a little chaos and a lot of change, you might feel kinda stressed. I loved it though.

    Advice to Management

    Keep encouraging your people to make suggestions and cultivate an environment of shared ideas. You're doing great!

    Pros

    Love coming to work every day! Excellent pay. Non-profit. Great co-workers, positive environment in most departments. Company is very employee-oriented. They take action based on employee feedback and the feedback is transparent. Much discussion of company visions, intentions and financials are given out freely in meetings. Everything is transparent, I just love how open the company is to any questions. There are no secrets. Open positions are posted, and encouragement given to apply. Innovation is exalted. Gosh, I can go on, this is such a great company!

    Cons

    Building is kept too hot! Often times floors are kept between 75-85 degrees even in the summer. Hard to work in those conditions. Some departments lack uplifting management - and are very clique-ish. Some supervisors/managers should not be supervisors and lack people/management skills (NOT my department).

    Advice to Management

    Keep cherishing your employees!

    Pros

    CareOregon’s staff are incredibly collaborative. The goal is well-being--a happy, healthy engaging life--not just for members, but staff, too.

    Cons

    Can always use more help.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus not just on health care, but on health--for all.

    Pros

    Average pay. Good vacation benefits.

    Cons

    Worst management I've ever seen. It seems like most of the people who are in management have no idea what they're doing. Work life balance was awful, and the work environment very stressful with people pointing fingers when things went wrong rather than working together to fix the problem. In meetings, company culture was touted as being wonderful, but the actual culture was completely the opposite.

    Advice to Management

    Get out of the way and let people do their jobs.
