    I worked at HealthFirst

    Pros

    You will learn a lot in this fast-paced environment. There's a lot of opportunity to move laterally among the departments as long as the individual applies themselves.

    Cons

    Advancement is tough as career path is not properly defined. Vertical movement is limited as a result and employee retention suffers as a result

    Advice to Management

    Compensation has always been an issue with various positions in this environment. Management needs to continually update their compensation with the market rate.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at HealthFirst full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Compared with other HMO's, Healthfirst is a company that offers to its employees competitive pay rates, decent 401k and other fringe benefits. A good place for someone who is fresh out of college has not yet found a desire employment. Employees are generally offered some sort of employment security.

    Cons

    It clear that the career advancement is very limited and totally not based on some one's credentials. You have to admit the fact that your hard work may not be recognized by management. There is almost nowhere you can move vertically. Lack of communication is the biggest obstacle for efficiency, especially interdepartmental communication is mostly mute. The level of consolidation is low in non-management employees, because...

    Advice to Management

    There's much room for the management to be improved in rewarding hard working employees. For those non-commission driven employees, the annual raise should be more than just keeping up with the U.S. inflation rate and should be performance based.

    I worked at HealthFirst full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    None don't apply here it's not a good, honest place to work. The upper management is nice to your face and talks behind your back.

    Cons

    Management is horrible and sneaky. Do not trust these people!

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with your employees and don't be fake/phony.
