    Pros

    Good resume builder, free flu shots

    Cons

    Negative culture, work is not challenging, micromanaging is rampant. Some management is unprofessional at times.

    Advice to Management

    Make development of emotional intelligence among management a priority. Actually empower people to make decisions rather than just giving it lip service.

    I worked at Peoples Health full-time

    Pros

    The insurance benefits are really good.

    Cons

    Leadership is not the most trust worthy. Example: They made someone create a management plan as a part of the interview process for a manager position. They didn't give the person the job but implemented the management plan they created.

    I worked at Peoples Health full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Sometimes they do a lottery that gives incentives to employees, such as football tickets or tickets to different events in the city, although they were slowly phasing this out before I left. Pretty reasonable benefits pricing for employees, although the pricing doubled before I left but they did give you an opportunity to participate in health activities for a significant discount.

    Cons

    There was a lot of miscommunication and mismanagement between various departments. Management often did not address "bad behavior" exhibited between employees. Drastic cuts to benefits and programs affecting employees and members. Work culture declined drastically under new CEO. There were often and drastic layoffs in which employees were treated very poorly.

    Pros

    The best thing about this insurance company are the benefits. Once the past CEO passed away the best perks went away.

    Cons

    Management needs to learn to value and appreciate employees. Please stop micromanaging employees.
