    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

    Pros

    Good work life balance, great people, everyone is like family, good benefits, your not micro-managed.

    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

    I worked at Health Net full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Helpful teammates, good benefits, big parking lots, lots of team party, fun atmosphere, the pay is decent, lots of overtime as well.

    Cons

    If you go on leave, it's very complicated to get back to work, they never teach you the process to get back in, which requires approval from the leave management department that will take forever to get it approved, I got the run around every time. Also no security guards outside after dark so it's kinda scary walking to your car alone especially if you park far away.

    Pros

    Was a fairly relaxed atmosphere, flexible enough that you don't need to sweat if your child is sick or some other emergency. I understand the dress code has become stricter since merging with Centene, but the culture so far remains pleasant.

    Cons

    Management is territorial. If you don't work in Woodland Hills, you can't expect a lot of candidness about what is happening above you and won't have much of a personal connection there either. Also tends to be easy to plateau career-wise here.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so California-centric. Other states have knowledge and experience which is valuable. Communication should be open-ended between management and employees. Morale sinks when people feel like they are in the dark all the time.
