    One downside of working at Health Net was lack of full training before you were pushed to work faster and be more productive. In my opinion, that is how mistakes can happen.

    I have been working at Health Net full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Not really any pros since they were bought out by a large corporation

    Cons

    the culture is stressful, never knowing who is getting laid off next. They do not allow you to work remote any days. They do not pay for performance. I had talented staff making $20K less than other companies would pay.
