I have been working at Coventry Health Care full-time (More than a year)

Pros

PTO, Sick Time, Holidays, FlexTime

Cons

A lot of favoritism. Incompetent slackers without education being promoted. Positions are adjusted to accommodate friends who do not have the appropriate background to fill the job. Thus needing to post a 2nd position to compensate for what the other person is lacking, which is a waste of the company's money. Some employees get away with breaking company rules, but they are never written up. No structure, a lot of socializing and not enough getting the job done. If the company is paying overtime, it is because of the employees waste of company time.

Advice to Management

Start from scratch. Hire smart professionals with a good education and a fair mind. Go to any office unannounced and look for yourselves. The company could be doing so much better than it is.

    Pros

    I've been employed for less than 2 years. Upon joining the company, I found that training was paced very reasonably, onboarding was structured and peers were very helpful as I learned my role. It's been a fantastic experience with a very respectful and team oriented culture. Extremely employee oriented, HR team is very supportive, Operations Management is very concerned about their employees. Excellent training, systems and processes.

    Cons

    For a health care/managed care company, I feel that the employee cost for health insurance is fairly high, which was a bit surprising.

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate insurance costs to employees, after all, the company is self insured! Also consider offering an HSA as well as PPO and HRA plans.

    I have been working at Coventry Health Care full-time

    Pros

    Most employees in front line positions are friendly, casual Fridays are great and the ability to telecommute on occassion creates somewhat of a flexible work environment.

    Cons

    People are promoted to positions mainly because of who they know, it's not always about their experience and background. If you are connected to HR, or are in HR, you will be put in higher level positions that you are not qualified for. Turnover in key roles is not looked at as an opportunity to fix or retain good talent, but as the best way to put another "yes man" person in the now vacant role. Budgets are always looked to be cut in areas, while HR goes overboard, spending on offsites, travel and their own development conferences several times a year. Ridiculous amounts of money are spent on Vendors because leadership can not make good decisions to plan, forecast and secure their business needs in a timely manner.

    Advice to Management

    Several key leadership positions need to be reevaluated beginning in Human Resources. You have to clean house in order to eliminate all the bugs or they will keep coming back
