I have been working at Inovalon as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Good training provided and presents an opportunity for many to expand their professional options. It seems to be a good place to get new experiences and expand horizons. Field staff positions are great for the person seeking an "extra" second income but not reliable enough as the primary support for a household. It all depends on what you need in a job ... if you aren't the primary wage earner and don't need steady work this might be for you ... getting several breaks a year can be a good thing if your bills are paid through other means.

Cons

There's not enough steady work or open communication. Field staff doesn't know what to expect when work thins out, only reliable information regarding workload comes while work is plentiful. It tends to leave people hanging for an indeterminate amount of time between contracts.

Advice to Management

Give your field staff more up front information on long term scheduled work flow so that more employees can accomodate your needs in their lives if you want to retain more of your nurses.

    I have been working at Inovalon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Inovalon will hire/promote anyone, no matter how inexperienced you are at the position. The location is not bad if you live in the Wash DC area.

    Cons

    Management has a "do as I say, not as I do" attitude. This company is plagued with inexperienced VPs, Sr. Directors, and Directors. Too many over paid chiefs, and unfortunately skillful “associates” who are not valued. Bonuses are given to “associates” who are close friends with the ELT (Executive Leadership Team), unless you’re the only “associate” within a department getting an equity increase. Specialty teams are hired to clean house within the company, and when the idea of an investment opportunity dwindles, the team disburses and moves on the next investment. Attempts at being “employer of choice” are not met, because leaders and the champions of change don’t have a clue as to how to accomplish this objective. Management does not communicate with the line staff; associates are placed into roles/positions they have no interest in fulfilling. Expectations are unrealistic, you are expected to work long hours, weekends and there is no work/life balance. This company experiences a lot of Department of Labor compliance problems.

    Advice to Management

    Change starts with its' leaders. Hiring SMEs (Subject Matter Experts) will improve many issues. Having two Directors (one pit bull, and one meek) doesn’t make sense, and one will eventually cancel the other. The first responsibility of a leader is to define reality. The last is to say thank you. In between, the leader is a servant.
