    I worked at Centers Plan for Healthy Living full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It is a very good Job For a starter to get their feet wet and get a first job. That’s what is good

    Cons

    Very few actually get to climb even the first rung to reach the upper level. The managment doesn’t care much about their employees. The building is gross. On the surface they make it look like employees are priority but at the end of the day, it’s the buissnes they care about and employees can either suck it up or leave. They know they will always have low level people who need these jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Really care about your employees . Don’t just put on a show because everyone sees through it

    Pros

    Few field reps. Highest commission in industry. Great place to make $$$$.

    Cons

    Unsure about future of company, no update on company financial health.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people that know know how to keep a company from going bankrupt.

    Pros

    I learned a lot in the short time that I was there.

    Cons

    I learned a lot in the short time that I was there because I had to. There was no actual training for the actual job I was hired to do, no documentation of process flows or Business Requirement Documents, a lack of knowledge across the board which includes Directors and Assistant Directors, high turn over, no structure, no guidance and no support from management, and had a real "helter-skelter" way of doing business. Also, their health benefits are terrible!

    Advice to Management

    Stop micro managing dedicated and hard working employees, pay for the equipment and support needed so employees can to do their jobs successfully, and put the right people in the right positions. Everyone is not fit to be a Director/Leader!

    I have been working at Centers Plan for Healthy Living full-time

    Pros

    Supervisors in my department are always helpful. Very resourceful. The pay is decent, benefits not so much. Overall, very supportive staff.

    Cons

    Taking work home. At first, an overwhelming amount of paperwork but as you learn, can slow down. However, you always bring work home. Although ample time is given you just have to manage time well.

    Pros

    Free Coffee
    Vending Machines
    Decent co-workers on the entry level.

    Cons

    Poor management and supervisors, nepotism, favoritism, disgusting work conditions, poor HR department and many more.

    Advice to Management

    I highly suggest you step our of your offices and take a look at whats going on around you. Your supervisors and managers have NO idea what they are doing. There is true and clear nepotism and favoritism. Supervisors tend to take credit for their employees work as their own, many employees are treated as punching bags for absolutely no reason and I can guarantee many of your supervisors lack the basic skills to supervise. The building is disgusting to put it kindly, the dust and odors from the construction cannot be safe but, even if the employees get sick they cannot go to the doctors with the poor health insurance you provide. The elevators never work, or are at the point of almost free falling, there is no parking available, there are bugs and you work in filth. There are not enough janitors or custodians and the bathrooms are disgusting. There are no clear outlines or guidelines on how to do your job but the management lacks any skills or education on their job so they end up treating their employees like punching bags. No wonder there is such a high turnover rate. This company really needs to shape up because from the looks of it, they're about to go under.

    Pros

    I am very disturbed by many reviews I read. I think many issues are inappropriately being communicated, as they are primarily due to natural growing pains of any company, especially one who is investing more and more into the comfort of their employees everyday despite the barriers. Company has grown so quickly, and those here for a long time and are strong have grown. If you can't keep up and be motivated by being part of building something, this isn't for you. This company tries extremely hard to create a safe and comfortable work environment. I have worked in a number of companies, and every company has bad apples and bad experiences. I for one am happy to be somewhere that values me but also holds be accountable when I err.

    Cons

    Growing pains are hard to deal with. Fast paced environment which doesn't slow down. High expectations and sometimes limited resources and limited support. Insurance is deplorable. Could be stressful overall.

    Advice to Management

    Smile and be visible. Thank people everyday. Allow for some freedom and flexibility.

    Pros

    I've only been an employee for a week, I can say that the people are very friendly.

    Cons

    The onboarding process is for lack of a better work
    "trash" Failed to notify me of my start date until i got a call from HR stating i didn't show for my 1st day of work. Repeated drug screening, stating that the vendor they use lost my sample, and had schedule one during training hours. The location i got hired for and the actual location I will be working at are completely different, about a 20 mile difference.

    Advice to Management

    Clear, and open communication will help aot

    I worked at Centers Plan for Healthy Living full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - easy interview and hiring process
    - pay is decent
    - free coffee
    - location (if you live near SI)

    Cons

    - no promotional opportunities (for non-family/friends of executive staff)
    - high employee turnover rates
    - over worked, underpaid, and not recognized
    - expected to work extended hours (nights and weekends)
    - majority of management is inexperienced and learning from their staff
    - if you are not part of the "clique" (being PC), you don't reap the benefits they do

    Advice to Management

    When looking to fill management roles, don't just select your family and friends. If leadership doesn't know what they are doing, its hard to expect staff and the health plan to be successful.

    And most of all, learn to be fair... not just based on a person's religion.
