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

    Pros

    High quality management and company leadership. Employees valued and supported. Work Life balance encouraged. More than most company's the aspirational goals regarding customers are much more than empty slogans. Women appear to have real opportunity for advancement.
    Employees work collaboratively and support one another.

    Cons

    Concern about ability of Health Net to continue now that it's been acquired by a larger company.

    I worked at Health Net full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent salary and benefits. Option to telecommute. Some people in select departments are extremely passionate about helping our members receive quality care and empowering our providers.

    Cons

    Many employees have low morale due to the merger and come to work everyday with a poor attitude which overflows to others. Training for new hires is nonexistent, which leads to inefficiency and low quality work. It takes forever to gain access to requisite software and systems to do your job. Network issues are rampant and it takes forever for IT to fix them. Some departments do not believe in data integrity and validation, so when you request data and reports from them, you have to check their work. When you find an issue or error in their work they give you attitude and refuse to correct their ways. These situations are not escalated because people would rather avoid conflict than change the system for the better. Lots of employees in the Sacramento office are incredibly unfriendly and keep to themselves, which makes the experience unpleasant when a person's entire department is at another location.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that new hires receive appropriate training and access to key software/systems early on so they can hit the ground running. Take feedback about employees' poor attitudes seriously - instead of brushing it under the rug, try to understand why employees find some departments difficult to work with.

    Pros

    I've worked w/some really smart and wonderful people.

    Cons

    Since being bought out by Centene the company is even worse to work for. You have soooo many "managers" that I'm still trying to figure out how they're so incompetent or still working there. Centene likes to pay you a little and work you to death.

    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!

    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.
