    Pros

    1. People are very willing to help
    2. Off the Grid .. 2 day workshop to bring in new ideas
    3. Use of cutting edge technology
    4. Good Location .. 5 mins walk from the Train Station , 1 min from the bus stop
    5. Work Life Balance
    6. A lot of extracurricular activities including chair massage and chair yoga
    7. Pizza Lunch Fridays and Beer nite Fridays
    8. Culture and Vision is amazing. Best I have seen in my entire working career.
    9. Exposure to a lot of free training sessions
    10. Very Very communicative about what is going on , new products etc.

    Cons

    Training Sucks.. They do not invest in training unless it is from a college. Sometimes you get stuck with legacy that can bring down the Morale. Only upper management get all the accolades and the worker bees are left with nothing

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and the communication!
    Take time to go deeper instead of just scratching the surface
    CEO needs to meet every individual and get to know their names on a more personal level .... at least once.

    "Don't Expect a Salary Increase"

    Star Star Star Star Star

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at NaviNet full-time

    Pros

    the company has many good pluses and otherwise treats its employees fairly well.

    Cons

    Don't Expect a Salary Increase

    The company is selective about who gets an annual salary increase. Not everyone does. Even if you have a very good performance review - it is no guarantee that you will get an annual raise.

    The company has an undisclosed policy that only some individuals will get an increase from the pool of available funds and others will get nothing.

    Otherwise, the company has many good pluses - this is just not one of them.

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

    Pros

    The culture, vision, and mission of the company is amazing. I feel privileged to be part of something that is changing the health care industry in a positive way. At the end of the day I truly feel like I am helping sick patients by facilitating better communication between payers and providers. Hard work is recognized and opportunities are provided based on your hard work and attitude. People are generally nice and smart but still willing to challenge one another resulting in high performance.

    Cons

    As this company transitions from a professional service company to a product and professional service company, growing pains are felt and to be expected. New lines are being drawn and it is not easy to clearly identify who is responsible for what.

    Advice to Management

    Require a sufficient amount of research to be conducted before giving the green light. Not enough market research into what the providers and payers need/want is being conducted.

    Pros

    They were very communicative about the process to interview, set it up at opportune times especially since I was not really looking so didn't want my current place to know. Still, after going through it and the interview I felt it was a really great place and took the job!

    People were helpful and the work is well structured and well documented, I have never seen a company with so many wiki pages.

    Cons

    About the only con I can think of is there can be too many pizza lunches (as if!)

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and the communication!

    I have been working at NaviNet full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    walk from the T, or park your car, plop right down in a comfy chair and attend a town hall meeting in the laid back lounge setting, and submit a question (or two), nominate a coworker, have an idea? there is open door management, pizza Friday after a long week, summer outings, training sessions, webinars, benefits to keep your teeth aligned, massages, (ping pong, too, people!), corporate recess, heck no, don't trek through the snow, work from home, and pick from a pile of vacation days!

    Cons

    I cannot think of a single reason why you wouldn't want to set your alarm, rise and shine, and go to work at NaviNet.

    Pros

    Great culture and benefits. Very smart people most of whom are very happy to help you learn and grow. Lots of opportunity for growth. Management listens and tries to keep employees happy.

    Cons

    Critical phase for the company where all of the company's hopes and dreams are tied to the launch and success of its flagship platform, NaviNet Open. Not sure if it's a con but it would be interesting to see how the payer / provider market reacts over the next 12-24 months.

    Advice to Management

    We NEED to increase our speed to market. There are a lots of great ideas inside the organization but a lot of them end up dying a slow death, because they never the see the light of day.

    Pros

    There are so many things wonderful about NaviNet. The company has a great corporate culture and sense of community. Everyone works hard and helps each other to get things done. Plenty of opportunities to jump into projects you're interested in. There is also a lot of food. Pizza Fridays, Beer Fridays, Monthly Cupcakes, and ice cream socials. There's also an employee-run group focused on charity which is great to be a part of.

    Cons

    I definitely think having a standard for making sure new hires get up to speed on what NaviNet actually is and does would be great. Communication can also be an issue, but usually people I talk to are always willing to make time.

    Advice to Management

    Everything is pretty great so far.

    Pros

    Culture, work-life balance, friendly co-workers. Every time I talk about NaviNet to my friends they say "what is this-- Google?" Free coffee, pizza, beer, and ice cream. Monthly chair massages. Volunteer opportunities. Casual dress; flip-flops and hoodies are regular office wear here. Ping-pong, basketball, ladder ball, and people only mildly make fun of me for sucking at them. People are awesome and welcoming. Lots of time off and flexible work-from-home time. Great location, especially for transportation and lunch options (sushi, chinese, and hot-pot, oh my).

    Cons

    Work is challenging, but in a good way!

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up. If you continue to feed me pizza and beer, I will continue to produce awesome results.
