Pros

High level of autonomy in management positions. Outstanding benefits package. Potential for career advancement due to nationwide growth.

Cons

All managers are allowed to operate autonomously, which would be fantastic if they all performed adequately. Local executive management fosters an environment of no individual / departmental accountability and flat out refuses to clarify roles and responsibilities, thus creating ample opportunity for slackers to shirk their duties. Low employee morale due to lack of executive leadership.

Advice to Management

Take a hard look at local executives to evaluate if you have the right people in place to lead the company in the right direction. Seek feedback from local leadership AND front-line associates on the office climate for a real eye opener. Stop the practice of transplanting low performers from other offices for management positions when there are fully qualified and capable employees who have been committed to working here from the beginning. Be proactive in creating accountability and improving morale before there is a mass exodus.

    I worked at AmeriHealth Caritas full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    great benefits, if you work for a good supervisor and have a good team it's a good place to work. A lot of learning opportunities. I came in not knowing a major microsoft office product and left with full knowledge of the program by taking classes there. I only worked there for a year

    Cons

    "lifers" that don't think outside of the box and just do what they want can make a company stale. Promoting people just because they've been around forever

    Advice to Management

    Stop putting so much emphasis on how long someone has been at the company and focus on what they have ACCOMPLISHED for the company no matter how long they have been there

    I have been working at AmeriHealth Caritas full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    -Friendly and supportive co-workers
    -Work from home option

    Cons

    -Lots of talk about the mission and values, but most actions of management are opposite
    -Increasing micromanagement, yet everchanging and unclear expectations
    -Employee morale is very low
    -Passive aggressive corporate surveys where bonuses are tied to positive results
    -Punitive management style in my dept.
    -Leadership is severely disconnected from employees
    -Leadership seems disorganized with constant changes in direction and focus

    Advice to Management

    -A drastic culture change is needed; managing by fear doesn't produce the best outcomes.
    -Employees don't feel valued or respected.
    -Quality needs to be more or at least as important as quantity.
