    Pros

    Good pay, and good colleagues

    Under staffed, not really a department that provides obviating trying or any growth opportunities, keeps employees working to less than their potential.

    I have been working at Security Health Plan of Wisconsin full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Solutions are well documented and supported making it easy to learn and adapt.
    - New solutions are always being introduced as well as a push to keep current solution current: this push keeps you on your toes as well as in a constant state of learning.
    - Coworkers are understanding and accommodating if circumstances, both within ones work and ones personal life, come up.
    - Security Health Plan is apart of the greater Marshfield Clinic Health System meaning discounts, access to discounts and resources and the ability to transfer to a variety of roles, if desired.
    - Tuition assistance as well as financial support for advanced training is provided via perk spot discounts right away as well as tuition reimbursement for those who've been around for at least a year.
    - Vast majority of coworkers are extremely knowledgeable and easy to work with, with little to no backstabbing nor any motivation to throw people under the bus for a promotion.
    - Health System and SHP are non profit
    - 401k can either be regular or roth and contributions are matched up to 6%. Also, another, pretax account is created and added to by the clinic, so long as conditions, like contributing 3% of income are met.

    Cons

    - Massive shifts and departures have placed an intense strain on many teams, resulting in inconsistent workloads as well as anxiety about getting projects completed on time. There is also some uncertainty about a few solutions that were pushed by coworkers who are no longer present.
    - We're forced to rely on the now, probably defunct MCIS for our hardware needs, resulting in a lot of frustration as requests are ignored, incomplete, and just flat out wrong.
    - A large swath of former MCIS employees were brought over to assist with projects and their interactions and overall attitude have been mixed. "Mixer" events have not worked too well as each group of people - the SHP people and the MCIS people, just clump together at opposite ends of the room. Furthermore, some of the unprofessional attitudes that MCIS is known and disliked for throughout the health system have taken place both in and out of the office.
    - There's been a heavy push on self funded, third party administration. For anyone who is familiar with Oshkosh Corps attempt to do this in the 2000s, when they attempted to run their own insurance company, will know why this may not only be a bad move, but may tarnish the image of Security Health as well as the entire health system.
    - An additional charge was added to the health insurance plans for spouses was added, except in cases where household incomes are below a certain point. This caught a lot of people off guard. Also, a copay was added to maintenance medications for the indemnity and none indemnity active plan, even though these were available free of charge the previous year.
    - The somewhat unexpected, early retirement of the head of SHP IS has some on edge especially as the future of MCIS is up in the air.

    Advice to Management

    - Be more proactive in trying to recruit new people. Add perks and benefits that werne't there before, like signing bonuses and paid relocation.
    - Try to improve documentation and implement a shared note system of some kind. While a lot of people are knowledgeable, not everyone keeps notes on what they know. This has lead to major issues with some solutions when a certain individual, who is either the only person or one of two or three who know something, resigns.
    - Be careful on how far the Security Administrative Services TPA thing is pushed. I still have yet to hear from someone who can explain the plan of action if a company fails to dedicate enough cash, upfront, only for the year to be filled with excessive sickness, maternity care, epidemics, etc. Because of the risks, I am glad the the clinic has decided to partake in this, because if these problems come up, there will be a push to put in place any protections that may be needed.
    - Expand on the employee involvement programs and find a way in which they can be funded ahead of time, so that employees do not always have to pay to partake in an onsite fitness program or any other activity.

    Pros

    Security Health Plan is a honest and ethical company to work for. They give back to the community. Great place for entry level people to start their careers. Great benefits

    Cons

    Not a lot of advancement opportunities for people with experience. Entry level individuals have opportunities, but then it ends. Need to reward top performers and connect with staff at all levels of the organization. Too many levels of management.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure senior management is connected with the people doing the work...too many levels of management.
