    Pros

    Education reimbursement. I gotten my BA and Masters paid for.

    Cons

    Upper management is not all on the same page. Things are changing so quickly and hard to communicate to all employees

    Advice to Management

    Invest in good people rather then just promoting who is next in line

    I worked at Health Net (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Health Net has a history of valuing its employees. They support their people. The work atmosphere is good and the people are great. Be prepared to work hard!

    Cons

    Working at any Health Insurance company is frenetic and ever-changing. There have been many long nights and weekends keeping up with the industry and governmental changes. Be prepared to work hard! The future here is unknown due to the current merge with Centene.

    Advice to Management

    Not to lose focus on its people and continue to value them as leadership and corporate all transition to St. Louis, MO.

    "Favoritism at its best"

    Star Star Star Star Star
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    You will learn a lot especially if you're willing and hardworking. Very generous with paid time off(at least before it was bought by Centene).

    Cons

    Management separates themselves from regular employees. If you will get promoted as a Supervisor or Manager, they will tell you upfront that you cannot hangout with your coworkers anymore at work if they are your friends. Favoritism is very obvious at the Membership Department. The people that get promoted are their friends or other manager's friends and relatives. While they say they cannot give their employees a raise, you will notice that they keep promoting their favorites almost every year. Also, the Membership Department is known for managers that micro-manage and is know for being a grade school kind of managing.

    Advice to Management

    Health Net has a lot of good employees. You just need to give them a chance to show how good they are and not just focus on your favorites.

    I have been working at Health Net full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company culture, while dysfunctional in many ways, was generally very supportive of the individual. I have enjoyed my coworkers and my team.

    Cons

    The Centene acquisition looks like it might really disassemble a lot of the good bits of Health Net in Woodland Hills. As Centene culture is imposed, I think it could get a lot less enjoyable to work here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the good bits. Be wary of upper management presenting too good a story.

    I worked at Health Net full-time

    Pros

    The work you do is extremely impactful, and you can directly see the business decisions made based on your work.

    Cons

    There is not enough bandwidth to take on additional tasks or revamp your old files. Time is of the essence, and it seemed like there was no breathing room. To-do lists kept piling up.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people so employees can have a better work-life balance. Provide more basic sustenance and don't keep trimming on these benefits. They used to give green tea bags, but cut it out due to budget.

    I worked at Health Net full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    This used to be a great company to work for. Management was good, salaries were good. Things were going great before Centene took over.

    Cons

    Since the Centene merger, many departments are getting laid off and replaced by new people in the st.louis office. The Woodland Hills offices will be moved up north in the next 4 years.

    Advice to Management

    The merger was good for the executives who walked away with millions in their pockets. But hundreds of people have lost their jobs and many many people will lose their jobs in the coming years. It's very sad.

    Cons

    Recent changes with the Centene merger make me unsure of my job.

    Cons

    Low pay, horrible yearly raises, I would say the company is stable but they did lay off some people. Work was outsourced (india). Hard to move up unless your close friends with the supervisor.

    Advice to Management

    More training and better yearly raises for Enrollment Representatives
