    There are some consultants turned executives that have no clue of what a good employee is, consultants churn numbers .. Great employees don't leave a job they leave horrible managers

    Advice to Management

    Stop all the "cultural changes" the employees didn't ask for "trailblazing" they bought you this far.. or did you forget.. get in touch with your staff .. listen .. stop thinking its old vs new

    Pros

    Excellent culture drivers but leadership does not lead by example and average benefits. Provides professional development if within budget. Also success sharing.

    Cons

    Managers will place you in one category for your performance evaluation but higher leadership will force manager to place employees into different categories without understanding their performance - bell curve.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your people

    I worked at Healthfirst (New York) full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    In the city, great benefits, 401K match. Met some real nice people I should've kept in better contact with. I worked here for about 5-6yrs so I learned a lot and gained a lot of knowledge

    Cons

    Overworked and under-appreciated, supervisor, manager or director may take advantage of you. Pay wasn't a lot. I worked my butt off. Stayed late. And even before they offered overtime I stayed late getting work done. And only got a 2% percent raise

    Advice to Management

    Take good care of your staff so that they will want to come into work, want to stay within the dept or want to continue working at this company.
