Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Sharp upper management with above average workforce in both skill and dedication. There is (was) opportunity to move easily within a group and to a lesser degree, company wide. Not nearly as 'boys club' as it was when they were in Nashville and its beginning to show.

Cons

Too focused and insular with an unwillingness to take on risks outside of 'what we know'. It would appear that the big deals are gone and it either growth by acquisition (do they exist?) or to be snapped up for their IP *only*.

Advice to Management

Do everything possible to diversify - lead rather than chase the market.

    "Interesting Leadership Dynamics"

    I worked at Healthways full-time

    Pros

    Disruptive innovation and trying to shape and define the wellbeing market space. Can be a great culture with competitive pay and excellent benefits. HQ is built for human performance.

    Cons

    Interesting leadership dynamics with the addition of the Navvis leadership. Decisions tends to be late and reactive due to almost all business decisions having to go through chief executives. It can be difficult to get bandwidth in a timely manner. Employees are routinely repurposed. This can be positive for new work experiences but it is also disruptive to the colleague and business continuity.

    Advice to Management

    You hire exceptional people. Let them perform and make decisions.
