    I have been working at Healthfirst (New York) full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Ambition to work with some new technologies
    Money and benefits are on par with NYC market
    Money pours in for technology project for a company that is not much profitable

    Cons

    IT department and overly ambitious business transformation has created an extremely stressful and chaotic workplace. There is no plan for achieving business value for all the investments. Trust is absolutely absent and the most of the senior management has evolved to a dictatorship with zero predictability and ego that is unparalleled. Everyone that i know is looking for new jobs. It has been the most toxic and chaotic time (having worked in multiple fortune 500) of my career. HR is completely useless and there is zero confidentiality. Engagement surveys are a joke. Most of the senior hires have been brought in to replace fired employees having little maturity and track record to engage employees. I would be very very cautious of joining the firm regardless of the position and money being offered.

    Advice to Management

    Company might need to be acquired or sold in the end

    Pros

    To be able to work from home and PTO

    Cons

    No support from Supervisors/Management. They just throw together policies like throwing spaghetti at the wall and hopefully it sticks. The Management is the worst. No support at all to the point they will let you fail then terminate you without helping

    Advice to Management

    The company needs an overhaul of Management.

    I have been working at Healthfirst (New York) full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Can work from home. A lot of good people (non Sr management) who do great work

    Cons

    All trust is completely gone in IT. Very key emplovers were let go for no reason other than to perhaps bring in consultants to "save money". Sr. Leadership has their blinders on if they think they are saving money! IT is managed by fear tactics. Communication is non-existent. Constant reorganizing prevents a lot of real work from getting done.

    Advice to Management

    Trust and RESPECT your employees. Provide them adequate training. Listen to their concerns. It doesn't help in the area of trust when the CIO tell the entire IT staff, "If you don't like it here, don't let me/us stop you from leaving." How is this interpreted? If you don't ever bring up issues or problems, you just might be able to keep a job here.

    Pros

    Pay and pto are great also allows remote work. Used to be a great place to work they really cared at one point.

    Cons

    Bad management not true to culture they pour down your throat. Do not care for employees or member's. Used to be a great place, new management ruined it, lots of unhappy employees.

    Advice to Management

    Please review the new people and their behaviors with the staff or stakeholders, they are very aggressive and bully like.
