    Pros

    The pay was very good compared to other places. The benefits are good, but I was told they have declined since I quit.

    Cons

    A lot of the fun benefits were taken away, like our yearly holiday party. Then they told us it would be every other year, but then they stopped that before it happened. Little outings like to Brewer games were also taken away. Managers don't appreciate their employees whatsoever.

    Advice to Management

    It doesn't matter, they won't take it.

    Pros

    Decent health insurance, but not great. Most of the people are nice to work. Most of the C level people are approachable and friendly.

    Cons

    poor eye care insurance coverage and they don't contribute to retirement like they used to. Some micro management happening depending on department and manager.

    Pros

    It feels good to say you work for the #1 HMO in the state and in the top 10 in the nation. Because GHC is non-profit its focus stays on the patients' and quality and assurance. The benefits are good, and they use a sliding scale to based on earnings as to how much you pay for the benefits. They take good care of their employees.

    Cons

    Nothing comes to mind that stands out. Overall good place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees more vacation time. =D

    Pros

    The most attractive thing about for working at Group Health is it's mission to provide affordable excellent healthcare. Great company with history of leading change in healthcare. Wonderful people to work with who care about what they do.

    Cons

    There is too much micro management by upper management and a lack of empowerment and trust for managers and employees below the director level.

    Advice to Management

    Continue LEAN work and make sure you "walk the talk"

    Pros

    Great people, very community-minded organization, good benefits, a strong focus on doing the right thing for customers and patients and each other. Employees form long-term friendships that extend past the workday. The company encourages & supports volunteerism.

    Cons

    Fuzzy priorities and processes, lots of silo thinking, few career succession paths. E.g., an enterprise strategic plan was adopted 2 years ago and the last published update was 1 year ago. Individual departments or even teams adopt rules that hinder other workflows without any attempt at outreach or collaboration.

    Advice to Management

    Learn transition management! You can't change the way things work by issuing a re-org email or publishing a policy. It takes real planning and time investment to educate people on the why/what/how of a shift in corporate priorities or methods.
