    I have been working at Highmark Health full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great location, healthy work environment, great people, perfect work/life balance.

    Cons

    Poor corporate policies and hypocritical "values". Great company being ruined by very stupid HR department. Ridiculous allocation of resources to the wrong departments, hiring freezes when demand increases. Firing large swathes of people directly before busy season. Telling people they are going to get a job then pulling the rug out from under them. Empty promises.

    Advice to Management

    HR provides zero value. It's better to eliminate an HR department than it is to eliminate all your best people because of HR.
