    I worked at Healthwise full-time

    Pros

    Healthwise has a unique culture that they work hard to maintain. The support for employee development is really good - each year, a variety of different training and development opportunities exist.

    Cons

    It is challenging to work in the Boston office, because the main campus is in Boise, Idaho...there is a TON of great technology to assist with communication, but it is still very Boise-centric.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure to adhere to the Healthwise culture - so important to maintain. Don and Molly spent over 40yrs trying to build this up, and it would be a real shame for it to disappear.

    I worked at Healthwise full-time

    Pros

    Flexible work schedules and some very smart co-workers. Great campus and benefits that often made up for the disorganized, chaotic and often unprofessional environment.

    Cons

    Most of the top management team left right before or right after the new CEO took over in July. Many of these people really were the heart and soul of the organization and it's good culture. Not all, but certainly the majority of the new upper management team do not display the same values and are most concerned with themselves and their career. Business is suffering due to past poor decisions and those responsible push blame down.

    I have been working at Healthwise (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people, location and culture. Good development opportunities. Respectful environment based on solid cultural pillars. Changing paradigms in Healthcare contribute to a market that's in transition which makes it both fun and challenging/stimulating.

    Cons

    Organizational changes are contributing to very heavy workloads. Difficult to onboard quickly due to product, technology, market, etc.. complexities. resource constrained.

    Pros

    Bright, creative and motivated workforce passionate about helping people make better health decisions. Excellent work environment and culture - respect, teamwork, and do-the-right thing are the guiding principles. New operational CEO is shaking things up a bit to move us forward for future growth.

    Cons

    I honestly can't think of anything to say here. The organization is going through quite a bit of change right now...some are struggling with that. For me, I think it is absolutely the right thing for the company.

    Pros

    Great culture, good working environment, fun place to work, good mission. They do a twice-yearly employee satisfaction survey, which is nice. You can bring your dog to work.

    Cons

    Salaries aren't really up to what they should be, but it is a not-for-profit. Depending on which team you're on in the organization, there's not a lot of potential for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to your employees.

    Open up. Many different tracks of how to do things.

    Healthwise has a great sense of culture and continues to grow its leadership in the Healthcare industry.

    With healthcare changing rapidly, so do the services and products, putting stress on infrastructure and leadership.

    Pros

    Great mission, Excellent benefits, Fun culture, Great locations or work from home. Family and pet friendly, Well respected and loved CEO, Really smart, dedicated employees.

    Cons

    Some slight growing pains from a merger.
    Training and career development are good, but there are opportunities to improve.

    Advice to Management

    I don't need to give advice in a public forum, management regularly surveys their employees and listen. Executives are measured on employee and team satisfaction .

    Pros

    Nice people to work with.

    Cons

    No direction. Heavy office politics. HR is not very good. Hard to fit in, if your government politics don't match the organization's views. Need to lean left in order to fit in.

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes to new technology. Your stuck in the mud.
