    I worked at Health Net full-time (more than 3 years)

    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.

    Unprofessional Supervisors

    Current Employee - Capitation Department Employee in Woodland Hills, CA (US)

    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.

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

    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.

    Overall, I have had an extremely positive experience at Health Net, but many jobs are being outsourced at this time.

    I have been working at Health Net full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Pleasant work environment where no one is brow beaten or beat down. People are allowed to be comfortable and happy at work. I think this is where Health Net shines strong. Great Benefits. Nice pay. Promotional Opportunities for the stand outs..

    Cons

    Huge outsourcing endeavors are underway, I may be out of a job this time next year. Not a very good organizational structure, meaning the departments are silo styled, but also my department is reorganized every 2 years or even more often and it just goes in circles until everything is back where it started. Top level management does not seem to have an understanding of the actual work that goes on in it's departments or it's value. This is a company that used to be awesome to work for but has slowly deteriorated over time and appears to be about to deteriorate at a much sharper level in the future. The new system they are implementing completely sucks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get a new job, you are about to be laid off.

    Pros

    The pay was the best, they are competitive. I was there for 7 years. They also have weekends and holidays off most of the times.

    Cons

    Play favorites, a lot of brown noses. and its do as I say and not as I do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Its sad because they already know who will be Management, just go through the steps of interviewing employees, raising there hopes. Its a joke. How hard they work or put time in, does not matter. And the person already knows there getting the position, so of course its all over the office . Very unprofessional.
