    I worked at HealthPlus of Michigan full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Each day was like working with family. The benefits were great.

    Cons

    Mismanagement of monies caused great losses that almost put an end to the company. A lot of good workers were lost during the downsizing period. Unfortunately some who should have stepped aside stayed.

    Advice to Management

    Be proactive.

    I have been working at HealthPlus of Michigan full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I've worked here for many years and almost all of them were great!! Salary, benefits, people, and environment were great for most of that time.

    Cons

    Financial issues came to light in the past years which have created significant change in benefits, people, and environment. Might have been a life long employee if it weren't for these recent changes.

    I worked at HealthPlus of Michigan full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    My co-workers which were my family. Worked there 10 years & until couple years ago, never planned on leaving. Pay was fantastic along with vacation & 401k but they took that away. My pro is already learning the hard lesson in how some run business.

    Cons

    Gave it 1 star only for my co-workers. Didn't understand how this once great company that management destroyed (only removed CEO) they are the ones made the deals & eventually sold the company off. When the state stepped in we thought they would help get rid of management that bottom line cared only about increasing the number of members in the end. The board was still getting 'perks' like the wives monthly salon visits? While employees took pay cuts & 401k cuts. Unless your considered a higher up, you sit in a mode of pure anxiety, waiting for that famous shoulder tap to tell you to grab your stuff now, leave, your done.

    Advice to Management

    You didnt listened to any of our pleas or ideas for years. You are the ones that sank our ship yet the hardest workers are the ones you crossed off the list like nothing, you walked us all out like criminals. We 'nobody' employees smiled, always said our don't worry talking points as instructed weekly to the outsiders, agreed to cuts in pay & benefits. You didn't fight & now Healthplus is no longer. Years of our hard work 'your family' didn't matter. All that mattered really were the provisions of management to keep jobs for scheduled length with your new employer HAP. The timing of all this, right before Christmas. Business is business but I hope soon 'your heart grows three sizes' before you go lead others in your next adventure.

    Pros

    Decent benefits and pay. Great environment with some of the most genuinely friendly people that I have ever worked with. Very active in local community with charities and donations.

    Cons

    Very poor management, refused to invest in IT systems built in the 1980s and preferred to stay in past. Poor financial decisions led to fall of once great company that had a bright future. These awful decisions by management led to many talented and extremely smart individuals leaving the company. Since the company has been broken up and sold to different companies I am not sure what the future holds for HealthPlus. This would be an excellent case study in how to NOT run an insurance company.

    Advice to Management

    To any management that may still be around, if even possible please look into streamlining/modernizing your processes to foster an environment that values innovation and change. Look for new ways to get things done, let go of the past.

    I worked at HealthPlus of Michigan full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Family-like atmosphere, long-term employees, cared for employees, families and community, Health & Wellness Benefits, employee involvement, focus on patient care & quality, great benefits.

    Cons

    Leadership failed to understand growth, and the concurrent need to improve internal processes, automate, compliance with future Affordable Care Act requirements, staffing changes needed but slow to respond.

    Advice to Management

    Learn from the experience, keep up with contemporary leadership trends, understand the difference of declaring strategy and executing strategy, understand real leaders do, understand the marketplace and trends, and grow.
