    Pros

    Motivated and skilled coworkers. I have the good fortune working with an amazing team. My Senior Director, Executive Director and the CMO are really knowledgeable and hardworking. They inspire me at work, provide timely feedback, and support me to take on new challenges. I truly enjoy working here.

    Cons

    Information Technology/ MIS should work on offering more competitive technologies within the organization and a possibility to work from home.

    I have been working at MetroPlus Health Plan full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Genuine compassion from hardworking, excellent co-workers, managers and up - there is an altruistic streak that is rarely seen these days; diverse and stable environment; advancement is certainly possible and encouraged.

    Cons

    Not for everyone; high level strategies can sometimes not make it all the way to the worker level; New York City bureaucracy can be challenging to deal with at times

    Advice to Management

    Work on differentiating MetroPlus from the rest of the City infrastructure; this includes how it can best be integrated to work with the rest of the City infrastructure as well.

    I have been working at MetroPlus Health Plan full-time

    Pros

    Besides the access to great benefits, and job security. One of many pros for working at MetroPlus Health Plan is the career development and succession planning. This organization is great for an individual, very much like myself, who is always up for a new challenge. Here at MetroPlus there is an intellectual challenge that many people seek when looking for a job/career. There's also flexibility in moving from technical roles to project management roles. At the same time, if you'd like to become an expert in something , this is a great place to start! The leadership genuinely cares about your growth, and wants to shine as one. The work environment is extremely diverse, and makes you feel like you are apart of a blended family.

    Cons

    Compensation isn't based on market value. You may like doing a job everyday, but may not be compensated for it.

    Pros

    I've been at Metroplus for 3 years, and it's been a pleasure the entire time. I'm a testament to the opportunities for career growth and training that are available. It's one of the most diverse work environments I've ever been a part of. Just like with any other employer, there are certain benchmarks and goals that you have to reach; but they're all attainable. I have supportive management to help guide me, and my staff does an amazing job every day.

    Cons

    Payroll is archaic and outdated. It would be a lot more simple to do electronically instead of on paper.

    Pros

    Benefits. Some great people

    Cons

    They treat the business like a mom and pop shop although they have over 500000 members. One person in the company can make decisions that impact the entire company negatively with no true input. The systems are antiquated with no hope of changing. Nyc government agency utilizing monies on outside of the state vendors. People hired and promoted based on race and personal relationships with no attention to skill setting

    Advice to Management

    Review hiring practices and promotion decisions. Utilize the skills of those most experienced. Stop relying on senior management to make decisions which can be decided and enacted by lower levels who understand impact. Update systems. Work on the totalitarian behaviors of management.
