    I worked at Health Net full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Generous pay and good benefits. Very flexible work locations and rather flexible work from home options depending on Managers reporting to.

    Cons

    Company is divided into silos and the mentality prevails in the teams to a huge extent. There is talk in higher management about talk of breaking the silos but haven't seen it in reality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is a good company. A good change in the management in reducing team politics and turf wars and fostering an understanding that we are working for the benefit of the company is highly necessary.

    Pros

    People are dedicated and want to help people be healthy. Opportunity for professional growth and development if you ask for it.

    Cons

    They want to do more than they can, so sometimes over promise and can't deliver.
    Very flat organization, so while you will get pay raises, getting title promotion is more rare.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stick with what you do well.

    Pros

    Great coworkers, leadership was okay. Good benefit package. Appeared to be opportunity for advancement depending on the department you are in.

    Pros

    People are nice. Salaries competitive. Education reimbursement. Option to work from home a couple days a week.

    Cons

    Right now there is a lot of uncertainty as many departments are being in process of being sold to Cognizant. Layoffs expected in the coming months for some, others will be offered to rebadge and work for Cognizant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too much process to follow. Job becomes more about following overabundance of process rather than getting job done.

    Unprofessional Supervisors

    I have been working at Health Net full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work hours
    Gain experience
    Better than no job at all

    Cons

    Unprofessional supervisors
    Departmental favortisim
    Un-qualified trainers
    Dishonest supervisors

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Before advancing employees to supervisory positions, instruct them on leadership ettiquite. Department Managers, supervisors, etc, should NOT gossip about lower level employees...to other lower level employees. Instead of evaulating employees on hearsay and gossip..evaulate them on what YOU actually witness!!! Stop playing OBVIOUS favorites, at least pretend to be subtle with favortisim.
