    I have been working at Network Health full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - The company culture is very positive, constructive, and friendly.
    - The company puts its employees first, and makes you feel like you matter. There's plenty of health/wellness programs, investment in training, and employee rewards.
    - There's lots of potential for advancement! Hard work and good ideas matter more than hierarchy or office politics.
    - It's a non-profit that makes a positive contribution to the community.

    Cons

    - Sometimes things are done in a messy, slipshod way. You might find yourself stumbling over lots of outgrown bandages.
    - It can be very confusing to get a handle on proper procedure. There's a lack of documentation, with too many policies left unwritten or written vaguely.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company needs more communication and information sharing between departments. It needs a better focus on long-term solutions, instead of just getting through the next crisis.

    human resources had to much power in work-life and because it was bought by two companies once before i started and one before i left - things really changed

    I worked at Network Health full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    By and large open lines of communication between business groups. Flexible scheduling and remote workforce encouraged. Operates with a nimble attitude despite the size of the company.

    Cons

    Some silo-ing and political turf depending on the department. Parent company dictates a lot of policy and process without the benefit of being in the trenches.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep moving towards a mobile/remote workforce, and stand up to the parent company to defend the right course of action.

    Pros

    Best Times when Christina was the CEO. There was good benefits and treats that made this non profit organization very appealing to work.

    Cons

    No more free Coffee, reduction on vacation accrual, terms to get your 401K fully vested is more rigid. The benefits are now terrible since the Tufts acquisition. Bad and negligent management. They would keep you working with a LOT of work even if you are not the best employee ...only if you accept to be paid under the average. Once you raise your voice for an increase then you will feel totally ignored. The company doesn't have money and they prefer to hire TEMPS even if they have to pay more for a contract

    Former Employee - Marketing Contractor in Medford, MA (US)

    I worked at Network Health as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    * pay was ok
    * workload was dry and easy

    Cons

    * Disrespect from many folks in mid-level management
    * Ignored as a contractor (put in corner and never had chance to engage in social activities)
    * No communication until last day (which was unexpected and not announced)
    * No learning. Not the work I was promised

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To the management that deals with contractors: You may have power over a contractor since they have no say in a company, but they are human beings too. I asked for a confirmation on my contract to an employee instead of my recruiter and as a result was punished by early termination. I didn't receive a goodbye or a thank you. I had to pack my things and simply disappear. It was the most strange and most disrespectful thing I have ever faced in a company.

    Pros

    Some of the most dedicated people working to help the most needy frost the poisoned cake of private health insurance.

    Cons

    Everyone is very nice, even when they are nasty

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is no unified goal - sharing work and blame would go a long way. And Christina Severin is not the president - she is at BI now

    I worked at Network Health full-time

    Pros

    The benefits are nice and the majority of the people are friendly.

    Cons

    There is a distrust of HR which really affects everything. If you have a problem with a manager, there is NO ONE to go to. My boss was the golden boy because he did all the crap work nobody else wanted to so he could do no wrong. He had awful people skills - he was awkward and didn't understand basic empoyee/manager relationships.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean out HR - provide a way for employees to provide feedback about managers and supervisors. Those people work in a vacuum and they know it.
