    I have been working at Humana

    Pros

    It's not just a place to work, it's a support system. The pay is above what most companies offer. Four weeks of paid time off and 8 hours paid volunteer time. Ever expanding company filled with opportunity.

    Cons

    It's not the easiest to stand out, especially with the amount of hiring, strong performance and networking is a must.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to engage all associates in every level and within all departments to push the business to greater heights. Acknowledge all efforts and find ways to distribute new responsibilities to hardworking associated to avoid burnout.

    Former Employee - Nurse Care Manager in Saint Petersburg, FL (US)

    I worked at Humana full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Work from Home, a great program for getting in shape or maintaining your health (Vitality), pays up to 6.5% above what the employee contributes to their 401K

    Cons

    Senior Leadership is only focused on quantity not quality although they claim quality is of utmost importance. They also pride themselves on being military friendly but do not make allowances for military related disabilities. (and yes, I know a couple of former employees who have filed ethics complaints)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    work more closely with HR and the disabled vet to try to find a way to accomodate their disability so they can retain otherwise hard working, dependable and ethical

    Pros

    flexible hours, great pay, friendly environment

    Cons

    not challenging, felt like more IT work than finance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have the interns get more involved with the rest of the team, rather than giving them side-work.

    I have been working at Humana

    Pros

    Humana is a very large company that can either be a career or great to build your resume'. The opportunity to advance in the company is always there. The work environment is nice and most facilities have a workout area. The salary is decent and can give bonuses in most departments based on performance. Benefits are OK but Humana pushes for a healthy lifestyle and promotes it well. Management pushes for success and are always willing to help. Working from home is encouraged after 6 months.

    Cons

    The specialist jobs can be very difficult, not the actual work, but the how much production you must work with in a day. Some of the departments have a high turnover rates due to that situation. Working Saturday's is very common along with holidays. Raises can be difficult to get unless you get promoted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay non-bias and positive.
