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

Pros

Decent pay starting out but over time it becomes restricted. Worked with some good management members directly. Work/Life balance was decent, benefits were okay. They have good intentions and processes, but not everyone follows them.

Cons

Biggest downside is if you are not in the "in crowd" or good friends with people in power positions it is very difficult to get a promotion. Promotions tend to be more about who you know rather than what you know. Saw many people promoted to positions that they were not qualified for (small things like using microsoft excel, knowing the processes, familiarity with the systems, etc). The communication between cross-functional teams is very poor, almost non-existent. Hard to do you work when changes are made and not shared with other areas affected by the change. Leadership can be spiteful, almost to the point of a witch hunt. Personally felt attacked on numerous occasions when bringing concerns to management and then being told that you are not a team player. No mentor programs or anything to help associates gain knowledge in other areas they may want to move to in their career. Moving freeze that is in place for 6 months at a time really kills morale.

Advice to Management

Improve communication between cross-functional teams. Medicare industry is volatile and policies are constantly changing. Changes need to be relayed immediately instead taking "we will take care of it the next day and figure it out then" method. Provide a mentor program or career coaching. Do away with the moving freeze.

    I worked at Humana full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Not many to speak of. My only positive memories consisted of bashing the company with co-workers.

    Cons

    You'll be constantly misled about your potential compensation. Target sales goals and earnings are inflated Commissions are paid 3 months behind to keep the carrot at the end of the stick.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out what you're doing before it's too late. The vicious cycle of lying/damage control can't be fun.

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

    Pros

    The pay is better than average in the industry and the overall benefits of the company are also better than the industry standard. The company does have good people working in the rank and file positions.

    Cons

    It is a very stifling company. If you are not part the inside circle your chances of promotion or recognition will be nonexistent. It's a company that does not promote creative thinkers. Eventually, management forces out the inviduals that really could contribute to the organization.

    Advice to Management

    listen to your rank and file employees
