      Pros

      This is the best place I have ever worked. The work life balance is amazing and employees are treated like real people. A lot of people work from home often and its never an issue. Management treats employees like they are on the same level, not like they are superior. There are often events during lunch hour like ping pong competition, free food, giveaways, etc. Also pay is great, relatively speaking with how laid back the work load can be.

      Cons

      The only con is, I started as a contractor and since you are not an actual employee of Excellus, you are excluded from a lot of things. Meetings, can’t use the gym, paid holidays, employee events. Not a huge deal, but they could definitely work on treating the many contractors with the same respect “real employees” get.

      Pros

      Nice building. Good, smart people who wamt to make a difference in a political company culture. Cafeteria is good. Good work/life Balance. People tend to leave before 5pm and by 5:10pm the building is empty.

      Cons

      They are trying to change the fear driven, cya culture that was instituted by the previous CEO. Unfortunately, they are not quite there yet. The ”lifetime way” sounds great on paper, but teamwork and accountability are not found as often as one would hope. Parking is expensive and the waiting list for reduced cost monthly parking is 6-12 months.

      I don't know that I've worked here long enough to provide cons. It can be stressful at times, but most jobs can be like that.
