    "Good Work/Life Balance, Poor Pay/Benefits"

    Current Employee - Business Consultant in Louisville, KY
    Current Employee - Business Consultant in Louisville, KY
    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    * 23 PTO days to start (29 after 10 years)
    * Some flexibility to work remotely (on my team, at least)
    * Work/life balance is good (regular 9-5 hours, at least on my team)
    * Great 401(k) matching program
    * Emphasis on promotion from within

    Cons

    * Health coverage plan is extremely poor (high-deductible, although there is an HSA matching contribution plan)
    * Raises are extremely rare (i.e. factoring in inflation, the longer you work here, the less you make)
    * Promotions seem few and far between
    * Siloed departments and functional areas (very little integration; sense of separateness even at the same location)
    * Many managers lack competency for their levels (they were promoted from call rep positions during Humana's growth in the past 10 years)
    * Diversity is limited (given lip service but not much more)
    * Gym is NOT free and has very limited hours
    * Cafeteria is expensive and of mediocre quality

    Advice to Management

    Be more clear and concise about strategy. Make high-level, top-down commitments to diversity and integration, particularly integration of data systems (consider fully implementing SAP or a similar ERP system). Create more clarity around career paths and possibilities. GIVE RAISES, at least cost-of-living adjustments; otherwise employees are losing money by staying (and good, intelligent employees will choose not to stay). Make the gym free (most other Fortune 500 companies have free gyms; no excuse for it not being so here, particularly for a health care company). Give employees better health plans, or at least more options.

    "Overall a decent job but does get tiring pretty quickly"

    Former Employee - Engagement Team in Dallas, TX
    Former Employee - Engagement Team in Dallas, TX
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    - Growing company (my division)
    - Good benefits
    - Pretty good at sticking to a 40 hour work week with some flexibility
    - Nice "campus" in terms of gym, cafeteria, etc.

    Cons

    - It's a large company, so nobody actually cares about you. You can be one of the most diligent workers, but the middle management will always find something to criticize you or your team for.
    - Management is EXTREMELY overdone. They monitored bathroom breaks, if that gives you an indication of how much they micromanage.
    - Management also never truly takes any of your ideas into consideration no matter how good they are unless they asked you to do it as a "side project" and expect you to still do all your other work to its general capacity as well.

    Advice to Management

    - Get middle management people that actually know how to manage (not micro-manage), give feedback, and recognize talent
