      Pros

      The leadership team has put tremendous effort into creating a work environment the respect staff, and provides an environment that promotes creativity, responsibility and supports open communication. HPSJ is one of the best places I have worked, and recommend the organization to anyone.

      Cons

      No cons, the place is great

      Pros

      I believe in the mission for this organization, it has tremendous potential to serve the neediest members of our community under the right kind of leadership. CALPERS retirement benefits are a plus.

      Cons

      I was tired of the blame game and culture of fear and intimidation under the previous CEO, and I had high hopes for improvement when the previous CEO announced her retirement. Unfortunately, the record of the new CEO at his previous health plan in Orange County is cause for alarm and despair. According to public records and employee reviews: - He mishandled the public agency’s response to the enormous homeless problem in Orange County, majority of the 435 homeless individuals who died in 2018 and 2019 were eligible for MediCal. It took a Federal Judge to intervene and make CalOptima take the first tentative steps to address the crisis. Apathy and outright contempt for the poor & homeless was evident at every step of the crisis. This individual has no place in any public agency. - Appointed an incompetent crony as COO, who proceeded to run a regime of intimidation and open hostility to employees. The HR Executive Director who tried to stand-up for the rights of employees was pushed out using underhand tactics and coercion from the legal department. HR has a revolving door and was directly managed by the COO acting as an “enforcer” to keep employees in check. - Failed to provide oversight for the $3.4B public agency resulting in a string of failed vendor contracts including for Behavioral Health and claims overpayments. Most of the public funds that were gifted to providers in overpayments were never recovered. - Most of the seasoned employees and executives left CalOptima, political hacks led by the COO ran the health plan while the CEO was busy playing games to manipulate the Board of Directors and covering up various failures at every board meeting. All board materials were carefully screened to ensure that all unfavorable information was carefully covered up. This was a fulltime job for the leadership team - While the weak CEO spent 100% of his time “managing” the board members and currying favor with the powerful county supervisors, the legal department really ran CalOptima with an iron fist invoking fear in anyone who crossed them. - Apparently, the final straw for most employees was a ham handed plan hatched by the COO to convert most employees from salary to hourly to reduce expenses. This adversely affected most professionals and was a slap on their face after years of loyal service. - Rampant cronyism, intimidation, manipulation of public records and a history of toxic relationships with partner agencies are the legacy of this individual in Orange County. It is a surprise that this public agency managed to avoid a full blown state and federal investigation into misconduct and gift of public funds. In the midst of a global pandemic and unprecedented 32% unemployment rate, HPSJ needs a champion for the community who has the back of his employees. Instead, we now have a new CEO whose record promises terror to HPSJ employees and untold misery to our 335,000 members who deserve a compassionate leader at the public agency serving their healthcare needs. Employees represented by SEIU Local 1021 should be very concerned by this individual’s record, it calls for vigilance and very close monitoring.

      Stress, with a side of additional stress and frustration.

      Pros

      Pay is competitive. But you pay for the pay.

      Cons

      Constant turnover. New managers expect new employees (under a year) to know everything, get written up if they don’t, for the only end result to make them look good. Managers and Directors aren’t held to same standards as the “workers”. Higher ups can blatantly violate union rules and get away with it. CEO does nothing to curb her Executives, Directors and Managers abuse of power and ridiculous expectations based upon the fear that the house of cards will collapse if everyone leaves. In turn this makes the “worker bees” stress out and forces them to take on FAR too much. Could be a great place to work unfortunately the lack of true leadership has made way for dictators and bullies in management and Executive positions.
