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

    Pros

    Fair wages and benefits. Employees can work from home sometimes. Good 401k. Company is growing. I worked with really great people.

    Cons

    Senior management has different rules than the rest of the staff. They implemented a calibration process for performance reviews and say that the bell curve is a target, not forced, yet managers are forced to lower team member ratings to meet the curve. What is ridiculous is that all senior staff but one were given "exceeds standards". Wondering how that bell curve looks? They should really take a look at who can see performance ratings. Their security is a joke and many people have access to see this that should not. Also a very high level management person was caught on surveillance having sex at the office with an employee. Both are still employed and have since been promoted. Sickening. They call themselves Trailblazers but it is all words. They don't walk the walk and talk the talk.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach. Your lack of honesty and integrity is pathetic.

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

    Pros

    Job location is great near lots of public transportation. Great potential to work from home. 401k PTO bright and airy place to work.

    Cons

    Employees work in fear..managers are not leaders and do not have integrity. Favoritism plays a huge favor in getting promoted. Work ethic is reactionary vs being proactive.

    Advice to Management

    Trailblazer model needs to start with leadership. Especially review the employees who have been employed with Healthfirst for many years. Change will never happen if you don't hold the right people accountable.

    Pros

    The company is aggressive about improving culture and transforming the businesses technology and data to prepare for more growth. This allows for many job openings with technical skills and room for growth. Telecomuting is a plus.

    Cons

    Management is a toss up. Quick growth seems to have let some of the early employees and otherwise mediocre managers rise to the higher positions. The turnover rate is high-- In the past year I can count about 15 people who have left whom I worked with directly. Work ethic varies greatly from depending upon department.

    Advice to Management

    Adopt new best practices and give credit back where deserved. Treat the people who work for you good and they will perform better and communication will improve providing better insight and transparency to what is happening.
