    I worked at Healthfirst (New York) (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits and mobility. I enjoyed my co-workers and learned a lot. Employees in any position are willing to talk to you.

    Cons

    They don't always plan for the long term. Often I learned, "what not to do as a manager." People are afraid, to be honest with their manager or higher up if an idea is not strong, even if it can help the company. I have heard a VP threaten his team's job if they don't start working the way he works.

    Pros

    NIce environment, coworkers were nice. The salary was decent.

    Cons

    I had issues with my direct manager. It turned out I wasn't the only one who complained about her. The director liked her so the way she treated people didn't matter to him.

    Big on work life balance.

    People are hired for their experience but not allowed to use it. Very poor senior leadership

    I have been working at Healthfirst (New York) full-time

    Pros

    I personally love being able to work from home. I believe the pay is great and the fact that there is no need to spend money on commute or lunch is a great advantage for me. Your always very busy with the workload and it makes your day fly by.

    Have been here less than a year but love it so far

    Cons

    Too many changes very quickly and at times management is not on the same page

    Advice to Management

    Wish change was not made as often but I guess it needs to be done. Maybe better communication amongst department

    Need to have more employees to cover son that other employees are able to request the vacation time they need.
