    I have been working at Health Choice full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good people, though most have left

    Cons

    Fear driven atmosphere with no leadership, worsened by recent departure of compliance leader. Talented people have fled the fire. Communication from corporate leadership is nonexistent. New and Interim leaders don’t have a clue, most have no leadership experience and run around frantic with no direction. There has been no employee retention, no explanations and no culture of compliance. One day people are here and the...

    I worked at Health Choice full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Adequate benefits, flexible work schedule

    Cons

    Management does not value its employees at all, regardless of tenure or quality of service. They are willing to hit their quarterly numbers at the expense of their people. This is an office environment mired in gossip, fear of upper management, constant scapegoating, and blatant religious nepotism. No accountability or transparency, and any attempt to promote these kinds of values will only get you in trouble. Turnover...

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the feedback from your employees. Actively discouraging accountability and transparency destroys moral.

    I worked at Health Choice full-time

    Pros

    None that I can think of

    Cons

    Constant high stress, little support, Steward doesn’t understand the complexities of a health plan in the Arizona market but doesn’t take the time to assess and adjust - they just bulldoze in and wreak havoc. Good employees are under-appreciated. Turnover is unbelievably rapid.

    Advice to Management

    Stop bullying and thinking you always know best. LISTEN to what people with MORE EXPERIENCE THAN YOU have to say. Try CARING about patients and employees.

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

    Pros

    Flexible weekly schedule, Option to telecommute in certain positions, Early work hours

    Cons

    All of the above PROS are past tense!! No more flex schedule, No more option for remote work, Adopting the old 9-5 concept

    Advice to Management

    Consistency is key! Everyone is not replaceable, some of us are one of a kind! Recognize the true company assets and reward! The "sheep mentality" is definitely for the weak. Sometimes the strength of a lone wolf is exactly what's necessary to get the job done, correctly! A job, a department, a company should never be one-size-fits-all. Life is no longer about the cookie cutter image. Think outside of the box and for...

    Pros

    Good work like balance, some departments have really knowledgeable people

    Cons

    Steward oversees Health Choice from Massachusetts and has no idea what’s going on. So much turnover with higher positions. HC can’t be run from Mass, the people need to be in Phoenix. The chain of command is so far off, people report to people in Mass instead of the higher ups in Phoenix. So frustrating. No CEO, CFO, some of the compliance people are interim. A lot of high seniority people that aren’t hard working and...

    Advice to Management

    Manage from Phoenix to see what’s actually happening, don’t just make suggestions from Mass.

    Ability to run the show in your department if you are highly capable

    Cons

    Pay is poor, Leadership is horrible, No communication, or if there is communication its always negative. Iasis owned this health choice when I was there. They were real bad with constant firings , turnover, quits and flat out clear out of whole departments. Sounds like nothing has changed with Steward, maybe even worse... is that even possible ? People that knew things were looked down upon for questioning...
