Pros

Strong performers can really excel at Health Net. Pay is average, Benefits very good, Severance is better than industry. They are positioned for strong growth right now so a great time to join them.

Cons

Slow decision making at times, duplication of effort is frustrating as there are competing interests between units. Technology solutions are old.

Advice to Management

Push more decisions further down in the company. Empower middle management and then hold them accountable for results. Value smaller units contribution.

    Pros

    Incompetent management allows ineffective and lazy workers to survive for a long time. Great 401k match, and lots of PTO.

    Cons

    The company is going down the toilet and management has no clue what to do. Poor long term job security.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize that you have failed. Reposition the company as a small company and abandon dreams of being acquired by Aetna.


  2. "A "good enough" company"

    Pros

    Support for work/life balance. Good benefits and pay is average.

    Cons

    Continually doing more with less. Constant layoffs and restructuring has negative impact on morale and ability to provide good customer service.

    Senior management has no apparent concern about how erratic decision-making and lack of communications about company direction and strategy have on the employees. Many upper management executives are viewed as unapproachable and out of touch.

    Complete lack of support for real employee development and training. Professional development is not financially supported by the company, except for very narrowly defined benefits for continuing education.

    Advice to Management

    Stop using layoffs as a method to increase profitability. People have become numb because of all of the changes. Increase communication about what is really happening in the company. The rumor mill is alive and well, and most employees are extremely concerned about ongoing layoffs.
