    I have been working at Humana

    Pros

    There is much room for lateral, promotional, and career-changing moves within the company, making it a good place for a career.

    Cons

    Silos in certain areas and departments can cause serious delays in getting things done in a timely manner, especially in tech.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HR is heavily contracted out for job process, generally inefficient. Move this in house ASAP.

    Former Employee - Medicare Customer Service in Tampa, FL (US)

    I worked at Humana full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great training program. Starting salary was great at the time I started my position in the company. More of a family atmosphere in the company. Managers and Supervisors and other higher ups were very accessible. Taking calls for the Medicare side,

    Cons

    I wasn't a fan of the time off policies, where all vacation and sick time is rolled into one. Part of the reason I left was due to the fact that I felt I could not advance. There is room for advancement within the company, don't get me wrong, but certain departments would not even grant me an interview, even though I received good reviews for my work in my primary department, and other projects I were assigned to. It felt like to advance, you had to be chummy with certain people higher up. When I did advance, the position was phased out months later.

    The health insurance benefits were ok at best overall. High deductible health plan. Paying out of pocket for prescriptions.

    There were times where Customer Service Reps received additional duties without any additional compensation for their work.

    I have been working at Humana full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Salary is good and the work environment and the people are great. Humana has a strong focus on well-being and promotes the wellness of employees with great programs, on site gyms, healthy foods.

    Cons

    With a big company and many processes, sometimes the red tape gets in the way of addressing issues quickly. Luckily the people truly care, it just takes awhile to get things done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Empower associates to have more authority to get things done because it's the right thing to do. Tear down the barriers that slow things down.
