    I have been working at Milliman Care Guidelines full-time

    Pros

    Challenging problems, generally positive atmosphere with attempts at transparency from the Executive Team, some training and/or opportunities for career growth depending on your team/manager

    Cons

    Some positions without growth opportunities for years at a time (by nature of the jobs, perhaps), poor conflict resolution/mediation and HR presence for some of the satellite or remote-based positions

    Advice to Management

    Check in with employees in a non-threatening, ongoing basis (open door policy) and work on adding conflict mediation programs or skills

    Pros

    The ceo is great, humble man.

    Cons

    Horrible quality of work is produced here. Management is woefully incompetent at their job. From the director level to many below or above they are clueless on the very departments they head lots of empty heads and afraid to hire more competent people. Their benefits suck!! You are paid health insurnace not on the day you join but next month. You have to give them your marriage certificate to prove you are married or they delay the insurance. You pay for insurance through your paycheck. 401k match happens only after a year. There are no vacations but they give you pto which if you use you end up paying for.
    Go elsewhere, you can do better than this.

    Advice to Management

    really?

    Pros

    Core product - guidelines - is a great asset in a great market, if only leveraged well

    Cons

    Inability to move to where the market is going and improve operations to enable this change

    Advice to Management

    Get out of old habits

    Pros

    The company holds frequent employee events in an effort to boost moral. As long as you are not looking into it too deeply - this can be enjoyable! If you like that sort of thing.

    Cons

    The leadership does not seem to prioritize the development of their employees. It might be a tough place for young people to develop their core skills early on.There was a lot of focus on making things look nice versus actually producing quality outcomes - and a lot of re-work as a result of not investing the time upfront to make sure the strategic planning is on point.

    Pros

    Mission of the company is rewarding, helping improve healthcare quality and efficiency. Acquired in December 2012 by Hearst Corporation, a giant media and information conglomerate.

    Cons

    Moving from independent small company to a piece of a very large company. Culture and methods are changing greatly. Financial rewards may be diminishing. Management is slow in responding to market needs. Expect more management turnover over next year or two.

    Advice to Management

    Stop promising that the company will not change because of the acquisition. Get in front of market changes, if possible.

    Pros

    * Great people to work with.
    * Pay and benefits are excellent.
    * Nice offices
    * Proud of the work we do
    * Company has learned and grown
    * Good work-life balance
    * Well resourced
    * Hearst bought the company a year ago and has been a dream partner, left the company culture intact and respects the strengths we bring to the table.

    Cons

    * Agree that the review process needs work, but I think it is getting attention and should improve.
    * Very little career growth, folks have to go somewhere else for a promotion. This also seems to be getting some traction and could improve near term.

    Advice to Management

    Doing a good job. Keep focused on continuous improvement. Thanks for the transparency.

    Pros

    They did pay well across the board and were not shy about spending money on things like company parties, resources, and such.

    Cons

    The company was bought by Hearst in October, and separated from Milliman Corporate as a result. The most incompetent executive management team you have ever seen. In-fighting, backstabbing, greed, complete lack of understanding how to manage people or processes or projects. This was from the CEO on down.

    Advice to Management

    Resign. Every one of you are worth zilch as humans. Take your precious money from the Hearst acquisition of MCG and leave.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, monthly parties, two fancy holiday parties, pretty relaxed about deadlines.

    Cons

    Sometimes wish for more attention to delivering higher quality product.

    Advice to Management

    Ask employees what they want for benefits. Some would rather have better equipment and tools than parties.

    Pros

    Pay is above average
    Bonuses
    Benefits package

    Cons

    Annual reviews are not helpful, concise or efficient
    Leadership is a revolving door
    Leadership team does not get along and its very obvious to all the employees
    Unhealthy work environment, not knowing if you will lose your job from one day to the next.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the dedicated hard workers you have working for you and do what you can to keep them. Your company is only only as strong as your weakest link.
