    I worked at Health Net full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Decent pay. Lots of overtime. Great co workers. Supervisors and leads are great too.

    Cons

    Lacks cohesiveness between departments, senior leaders, and staff. Departments operate in silos, not understanding how each skill set affects the other.

    Advice to Management

    Senior leaders, find ways to improve the culture of your department to reduce turn over.

    I worked at Health Net full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Benefits were great once you became permanent. Everyone started as temps in customer service

    Cons

    Company is too top heavy and the regular workers paid for it by layoffs almost every year . I was there since 2013 and saw how the New Manager tried to Micro Manage and thought her ideas were the best . Some don’t even know how to lead a team .

    Advice to Management

    Give your employees opportunity to switch to other programs instead of laying them off..

    I have been working at Health Net full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    Free parking Great for people who like to be told what to do in detail, so you don't have to think for yourself You'll never get fired

    Cons

    You work with poorly managed departments all day long Constant loss of membership due to Centene's bright idea to migrate without testing or notification to members ***Be warned they're planning to migrate Medi-Cal membership too, but calling it a soft migration (BIG MISTAKE) Pay is low for the amount of work you put into this position (salaried) You're basically every department's lap dog and you have no voice in your...

    Advice to Management

    DO SOMETHING. You've already lost your BEST people. Go back to the old Health Net ways. You will lose California members without even realizing what happened.

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

    Pros

    Free Parking. They will buy lunches or meals for staff occasionally.

    Cons

    Supervisors and above: expectation to work upwards of 50 or 60 hours a week, every week with no end in sight. Senior leadership will blame everything on the supervisors and staff. They have created a toxic workplace, try to rule by fear. Hire managers that are bullies, very nasty. Unless you are a "favorite" and there are a couple of those, that are not qualified for their job but yet are untouchable and can do no wrong....

    Advice to Management

    Wake up! Can't seem to figure out why you have a problem with good, educated and qualified people leaving for other jobs? Let me spell it out: A. Senior Management is rude, undermines their direct reports right in front of other staff at team meetings! And that is acceptable to you? B. Throws people under the bus and blames direct reports for their "numbers" being so far out of compliance or expectations for turn around...
