    I have been working at Marathon Health part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Work/life balance. Time spent with pts. Being able to focus on patients health without the billing or production part. Culture is great, employees are considered ambassadors and there’s a sense of belonging and inclusiveness.

    Cons

    Occasional conflict with contractors expectations with managed health . Although the company offers great support, being remote to main office may feel too remote to connect with others.

    It is so rewarding working for an organization with a strong mission and value system. They care about us as employees and I really believe that our voice matters.

    I have been working at Marathon Health part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The company has a great concept of what healthcare should be. It’s demonstrated in how they treat their employees.

    Cons

    Growing too fast which is good but still working out the kinks and growing pains. Understaffing is an issue in some health centers.

    I have been working at Marathon Health full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The people are AWESOME! From the top down, people are approachable, caring and smart. I like my team and can say I have fun at work. I'm proud to play a small part in changing healthcare!

    Cons

    Seems like there is some friction related to flexible schedules and working from home. This has caused some coworkers frustration. Given what I know about other organizations in Burlington, the environment seems a little old school sometimes. The pros far outweigh the cons though.

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

    Pros

    Concepts like "culture" and "mission" aren't just lip service here--it's the real deal; true passion for the goal to improve healthcare, not just for customers but across the nation; wonderful people--no politics or backstabbing; focus on reliance on our own merits and achievements, not putting down the competition (in fact, it's not allowed)

    Cons

    Salaries could be better. Internal promotions are good and a lot of work has been done on career advancement (i.e. "career levels", etc.), but the company has reached a point where serious thought about career tracks and succession planning need to not only be in place, but openly shared. This was the norm at other organizations I've worked for, and with most of the executive staff being in their late 50s/early 60s, it's frankly a bit scary not knowing what the succession planning in place is (or if there is any).
