    I have been working at Evolent Health full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits are extensive (including 6 health insurance options, pet health insurance, multi-tier dental/vision plans, occasional remote work, 25 days/year PTO, free tea/coffee/soda, etc.).

    Entry-level pay is market-competitive based on Glassdoor and LinkedIn market assessments. The company itself is well-positioned in the market and is highly responsive to the volatile value-based care market.

    Company and teams are innovation-, objectives-, and collaboration-oriented rather than stuck on competitive office politics or keeping the status quo, and this shows through everyday team interactions and the history of Evolent's analytics development.

    Analytics team follows through on its commitment to developing tech talent through extensive onboarding and skill training. The training is best for those comfortable with a high ratio of independent work, though teamwork and cross-department collaboration are critically important and strongly shape daily workflows.

    Cons

    None seen so far. The work/life balance seems reasonable (40-45 hours/week for exempt Analytics employees) for entry-level employees. The workplace may be challenging for those not used to routine independent learning and limited direction on tasks.

    Advice to Management

    Continue enforcing the great culture as the company grows.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits, flexible work schedule, my manager actually cares about where my career is going and is working to help me meet my goals, nice office (in Arlington at least) with free snacks and coffee, there is a lots of room to grow, also month long sabbatical after 5 years on the job? Yes please!

    Cons

    Executive level could be more diverse - every level below them shows really good representation but the tops are still mostly white men. Company is very fast paced which is not bad in and of itself - but sometimes when a project goes on for a long time and someone is expected to got the extra mile, it goes on a little too long and folks burn out

    Advice to Management

    Be more selective with partners and work on diversity at the highest levels

    Create more clear policies.

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

    Pros

    -flexibility in hours
    -work from home ability
    -great benefits
    -great pto/vacation
    -not micro-managing (depending on your team)

    Cons

    If you excel in your job you get rewarded with more work and extremely minimal raises (think cents) despite great “exceeds expectations” yearly reviews.

    “It pays to know someone” is the name of the game. Those who get hired by knowing someone in upper management often start at double what the position salary starting pay is.

    Those that do not work/cannot handle workload get their work passed off to those who can, increasing workloads to unreasonable amounts. Not enough accountability for under-performers.

    Lack of a training and development team (for all areas) makes it difficult to bring on new hires to be effective and set them up for success.

    Constant restructures happening every few months, there is never time to see what works and what doesn’t. Lack of communication when changes are made causes much confusion and frustration.

    Advice to Management

    Reward those that work hard and are deserving. Hold people accountable for their productivity (or lack thereof). Give time for restructures/changes to see what works. Training and development should be a top priority for success and growth for the company and individuals.
