    I have been working at Evolent Health full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Starting salary is higher than market, encourage career growth, location, benefits

    Cons

    Management is a mess starting at the executive level trickling down. Management cares more about meeting deadlines than having properly trained employees. If you don’t mind brown nosing, you’ll do just fine. Company values transparency, however, there is none with leadership. Company has fallen on hard financial times that’s causing this ugliness to be exposed that used to not exist. As a result, team morale is in the...

    Advice to Management

    Management needs professional training. They need to go on a retreat to learn what leadership and teamwork is supposed to look like. They need to recognize that morale is in the toilet instead of patting themselves on the back. The company culture that Evolent tries to promote doesn’t exist in the Chicago office. Also, they need to trust their employees. They won’t our department WFH because of this. If you don’t trust...

    The Titanic – yikes, what a comparison. We’re glad that you haven’t hopped in a life boat just yet though. Transparency remains a priority and communication is being shared through multiple channels on a regular basis (check out Sharepoint for any that you may have missed). We also ...

    I worked at Evolent Health full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The salary and bonus structure are great

    Cons

    Business partners, clients and regulators are expressing concerns about the company's billing practices of their management fees. News articles have been written about it.

    Advice to Management

    Committments to 401K contribution should never be on the cutting board. Improve recruitment planning and business operations model if you want to encourage workforce loyalty/ dedication.

    Pros

    Personal time off is ok

    Cons

    *UM needs direction * Laid off ----4 weeks after I started * UM focuses on quantity...but they expect you do quality as well... * I interviewed for UR position, ended up doing UR, PA, Customer service(phone), DCP, intake job.

    Advice to Management

    Value what you have, don't push your employees to their limits. Have a more organize structure and roles for each specific position.

    Pros

    Good remote work policy, ok salaries

    Cons

    Leadership has made a bunch of strategic mistakes lately, which have lead to benefits cutting and layoffs (but no leadership losses . . . ) Arlington employees have 3-4x the bonuses as Chicago employees for the same positions. Meetings will always have 3x the number of people necessary. Processes involve so many teams it's almost impossible to just get things done.

    I have been working at Evolent Health full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Unlimited PTO, work from home options, competitive 401(k) (if it gets funded), C-level leadership seems transparent and accountable

    Cons

    This place grew so fast they never bothered to put processes in place. It's unreal how much everything is held together with rubber bands and super glue - you'd expect from a startup but not a "industry leader." Faux leadership, no idea how these people got promoted. Cut benefits and bonuses even when they tell you to your face you're a "star performer."

    Advice to Management

    Stop operating like two (more?) separate companies. You literally still have Valence IT and two data warehouses. Process and structure are needed but nobody has the time to spend on developing it. You will not retain any employees you want to keep when you keep slashing benefits after they break their backs for you.

    Pros

    Work life balance, PTO, great people, pay

    Cons

    So many recent changes that it's difficult to know where to focus as it feels like we are just waiting for priorities to shift again. It's not "fun" to work here any more. No events or team building activities.

    Advice to Management

    It sounds so silly, but having no events or team-bonding activities to look forward to throughout the year adds more to the burnout. I wouldn't have thought that those things were that important prior to them being discontinued. Senior Leadership and certain teams within BD or GTM seem to still have funds to do activities -- but the rest of the business, not so much. Senior leaders go on "retreats". That kind of thing...
