    Pros

    The company is a nice company to work for and my manager is a rockstar. Can’t say enough about him and I feel the work life balance actually exists here.

    It was recently announced were affiliating with another carrier. That’s concerning to me regarding future layoffs.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at HealthNow New York full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Committed CEO that has a great vision. A CFO that is strategic and has excellent leadership & people skills to execute the strategic vision. A CMO that is empathatic and truly committed to increasing Member's access to quality, affordable healthcare.

    Cons

    A couple of key leadership positions are held by personnel that are "grandfathered" into their positions. Deep in their mind, these leaders are very much aware that they are not qualified for those positions. As a result, they are extremely insecure to surround themselves with qualified personnel/subordinates, lest their weaknesses should be exposed. The HR bureaucracy, inadvertently, helps these weak leaders stifle talent from progressing.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at HealthNow New York full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Excellent PTO & benefits. Someone on here complained that PTO is “only” 28 days. What do people expect? You also get a floating holiday AND can roll over 5 days a year. People who complain about that are crazy. Free parking ramp, cafeteria, Starbucks, 4% 401k match, dress down Fridays.

    Cons

    Too many organizational changes and if you have a bad SVP, good luck. A few SVPs shouldn’t even have a mediocre job there let alone be left to manage entire departments. Departments often butt heads with one another. CEO is a bit two-faced but puts on a nice act.
