    I have been working at Global Healthcare Exchange full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I honestly love working for GHX. They have given me the resources and support to grow and learn as a professional. I am absolutely in a better place and am a better person for being a employee at GHX. I have had the opportunity to work with a team that inspires and pushes me everyday and for a leadership team that truly wants to make a positive difference in healthcare

    Cons

    I don't know if I have any cons right now in position. I really do love my job

    Pros

    -You accrue 3 weeks of PTO and get 6 days of personal time right up front.
    -The people are friendly and everyone seems to genuinely want to do a great job.
    -Depending on your manager, the ability to work from home is a huge plus (not all teams can do this).

    Cons

    -There are a lot people in management who seem to have their jobs purely because of how long they've been at the company (some people are at 10+ years there). In fact, you seem to get many perks just because of your tenure or who you know and how well you know them.
    -They hire a LOT of contractors instead of promoting within or giving current employees greater responsibility or bigger projects (they don't pay for benefits for contractors).
    -Company does NOT pay for professional development. They talk about how WELL the company is doing and yet the budget is always super TIGHT! (And yet not so tight when they want to send all of Sales and half the company to Vegas!)
    -The same people get promoted and/or moved around over and over - there are key players who are clearly the most important and most revered (you hear their names all the time).
    -Employee engagement is very low and no one seems to want to change that.
    -Not much in the way of career opportunities (those people in management who have been here 10+ years aren't leaving any time soon!). Overheard two people on my team talking about recent job interviews elsewhere and one guy who was really good just left after 6 years (with no promotion).
    -There are no bonuses and only cost of living increases.
    -CEO is not a "walk through the halls and say hello to the little people" type of guy.

    Advice to Management

    GHX has so much potential to be a great place to work. The location is amazing, the facility is killer, and the people are FUN. But you need to start investing more in your employees - taking notice of the talent you already have and putting it to good use. You have so many disengaged employees...an occasional beer cart is not good enough. Walk your own talk and help your current employees GROW - and not just the ones that bring in direct $. We're all here to help the company succeed, but you're losing talent left and right! Open your eyeballs and start nurturing those who want to be great!

    Pros

    Very competitive pay, 4 weeks vacation if you make it to 5 years plus 16 personal + holidays, descent benefits although the medical seems a bit weak for a healthcare company.

    Cons

    Not much in regards to career opportunities for the majority of employees, medical benefits, some of the management have their positions just because of how long they have worked there. Some teams are expected to work crazy hours.

    Advice to Management

    A happy employee is a good employee, remember what it was like when you were at the bottom.

    "Unknown"

    Pros

    Telecommute work option, competitive wages and they will definitely feed you. Depending on your manager.

    Cons

    The departments are so divided, what goes for another department is different depending on the department you work for. No real room for growth as they would rather higher contract workers and outside people rather than allow the ones that are there to move up.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that all company rules apply to all departments. Too much division within the different departments.

    Pros

    The work is rewarding, knowing we're helping such an important industry.

    Fun culture - great people, collaborative working environment; a commitment at the senior and executive level to building a strong culture

    Great office location in Louisville; miles of outdoor trails overlooking the flatirons

    Strong energy right now - growing alignment among all departments

    Good benefits and PTO plans as well as 401k options

    Cons

    Can be very fast-paced - very much in growth mode (can be seen as a pro if you enjoy that environment)

    Pros

    Good Atmosphere, good people to work with. Good work to life balance

    Cons

    Lots of politics, projects are scattered and splintered sometimes with little directions. There is a lot of obstacles in delivery that seems unnecessary

    Advice to Management

    Get out of the way, you have smart people working for you, get out of the way.

    Pros

    Great people, teamwork was good, work life balance was good if supported by your manager.

    Cons

    Not very stable, lots of management changes. Technology was a bit behind the times but they were trying to catch up.

    Pros

    Great company, friendly coworkers, good atmosphere, good work balance. Would recommend to a friend. Love the location and the building.

    Cons

    Contract job, so no benefits and not on salary. Hourly pay but no overtime. They seem to be hiring a lot through a recruiter.
