    I worked at Independent Health part-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    IH has a great culture, focused on customers and on employees. They strive to give employees the resources they need to do their job well and are always encouraging associates to improve and think outside the box. In general, compensation is respectable and associates can expect to be rewarded for going above and beyond. The organization is constantly trying to forge new pathways in healthcare and health insurance,...

    Cons

    No company is perfect, but IH really ranks up there.

    I have been working at Independent Health full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Encouraged to work from home to provide ample parking for employees who work from the office Pooled PTO for sick time and vacation time Tuition assistance Room for growth Good insurance benefits

    Cons

    Parking is limited Lack of communication Management/supervisors seem unengaged due to always being in meetings

    Advice to Management

    Be more personable! We want to know you as people not by just names. And work on the parking issue it’s a huge frustration for those who work at the office.

    Progressive company with a "promote from within" mentality. Flexible work schedules where ever possible. Encourages work-from-home. Great benefits. Excellent equal opportunity for all; truly merit based promotions. Lots of women leaders.

    Cons

    Lack of parking, so get there early!

      I have been working at Independent Health full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      Competitive salary, amazing health insurance, incentives for not being a slob(aka incentives for healthy activities), lots of volunteer opportunities, great coworkers. On site gym.

      Cons

      401k match doesn't hit until after a year which is kind of silly. Company is smaller so there is a limit to movement up the ladder. Less vacation time than would be expected. Work/ life balance is needed.

      Advice to Management

      401k match after 90days instead of a year. Split sick days and vacation days into two separate pools but keep the same amount of vacation and add 5 sick days. Incentives for wellness are amazing!

      I have been working at Independent Health full-time for more than 10 years

      Pros

      The people are terrific. Everyone is generally very friendly and helpful. The organization really lives its core beliefs. The Health Care and PTO are particularly good benefits.

      Cons

      The pace can be overwhelming at times. The range of systems and data can also be overwhelming, especially to a newcomer. There are always a large number of project in motion at any given time, necessitating nights and weekends for some in IT.

      Advice to Management

      Management is doing a very good job (IMHO) guiding the company through rough waters due to the Affordable Care Act (ACA). They are very good at communicating the status and direction of the company.

      The management actions and decisions to the employees are suggested to enhance the employees job duties.
