I worked at Group Health full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

I loved working for a company that had great ideals, great benefits, and really nice people.

Cons

A lot of the management at HQ stayed way past their expiration date, reinforcing stale processes because 'change is scary'. New management faced obstacles from a deeply entrenched old-school system, which ensured anything that needed to get done would take twice as long as it should.

Advice to Management

If you've been there for longer than 20 years, it's time to go. You're drowning the company with your ennui and fear of change.

    Pros

    Strong work ethics in our department produce good quality work. Our employees are collaborative and have worked hard to accomplish the goals we set for ourselves. For that we are recognized with good pay and decent benefits.

    Cons

    Wow where do you start with executive leadership. It currently feels like we are on a sinking ship. The last several years have been nothing but redesign, reorganization and layoffs. Rinse and repeat with no concept of how the work is going to get done. Now we have leaders with fancy titles attempting to get "creative" and "innovative".

    Advice to Management

    It's understandable that there are times when reduction is necessary. Stop with the hack and slash mentality and put some strategic thought into approaching staff reductions and reorganization. Bad decision makers make for bad decisions. It's time to take a look at the upper most leaders including the captain of this ship. You are going to continue to lose you most talented individuals, the only ones keeping this vessel afloat.
