    "No upward mobility unless you're a manager's favorite"

    I worked at Humana full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Health benefits other than medical are rich, comprehensive plans. When aligned with the right allies, upward mobility takes little effort. Reward system in place, when upper staff recognizes you going above & beyond the call of duty.

    Cons

    Took a base position with the promise of market expansion & upward mobility. After nearly 4 years of empty promises and even earned my insurance license to prepare for the possibility, was informed that management had no plans of expansion & I was just out of luck. They recognized my skills, but I had an issue with their little hesitation to have me doing tasks meant for upper positions or filling in for people making 50%+ of my salary, with little representation, in addition to my existing tasks. I am more useful than just being used as everyone's secretary. I gave them plenty of time and eventually resigned. Found an Account Management position with a different company & industry, performing the job I was trying to get Humana to promote me to, and for once, I'm being paid for what I'm worth.
    For future employees, be wary of their medical plan. Humana puts their employees on a plan we in Sales couldn't even sell to groups. It's not a comprehensive plan, which for a healthcare carrier, is an embarrassment.

    Advice to Management

    Give your employees equal recognition. Do not make the promise of growth, only to stagnate it and funnel funds to "more deserving" markets. You have to spend money to make money. You need to hire an adequate staff in order to grow your book of business. Waiting until the book is so full that the existing employees managing it are exhausted & overloaded for an extended period of time is just poor business tactics. Send ALL of your staff to annual Sales training, not just the positions you deem "essential" to making a sale. The grunt at the office doing most of the heavy lifting and making no commissions is the primary reason you are able to follow through with a sale at all.
