Terrible management.16 Nov 2021 - ManagerRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Few employees who care about each other. A paycheck. But honestly, nothing.
Horrible leadership. No respect for employees. No reward for hard work. No work/life balance. Constant restructure and layoffs. Do not work here if you value job stability.Continue reading

Very Poor Management25 Mar 2021 - Data Analyst in Baltimore, MDRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Decent benefits and 401k but definitely can do better
very bad management, no work life balance poor communication through higher management constant layoffs every other quarterContinue reading
Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback. Inovalon is a large and growing company, and we understand that communication from the leadership is invaluable. It is disappointing to hear that lack of communication was an issue for you. We also understand you felt there was a lack of work life balance. Inovalon is working to implement initiatives to encourage employees to unplug during off hours. This kind of shift begins with our managers, so we will also be building in manager training to encourage employees to unplug when they are off the clock. If you’d like to provide further feedback or ways that we could help implement better work/life balance, please email us at GlassdoorFeedback@inovalon.com. Thank you!

"Simply, not a good company. Do not compromise integrity for money. I regret it."17 Jul 2014 - Manager in Bowie, MDRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
- Decent Salary - I'm trying -Oh, room for advancement because of the high attrition rate. -If you get a decent manager, you will survive.
The bearable Cons: -No work/life balance. None. There are some people that I am positive are not seeing there family. -Horrible ELT except for CPO/COO (C.G.) who should be CEO and just change the culture of the company. -Attrition rate is extremely high. The talented leave fast. The very talented leave like they are breaking out of a bank! I have never seen so many people quit like this at a company. -No Professional development What actually is truly unbearable: The company absolutely cares Nothing for you; whether you bust your tail or not. It is blatantly obvious the CEO is not a good person and must be avoided at ALL times. CYA mentality companywide. Throw a man under the bus and put a cement block on the gas pedal. Smart people that ONLY like to talk...list to the echo of themselves talk...then talk some more. Everything is a Fire Drill/Emergency. How can every request be a Fire Drill? Such poor character being displayed in much of leadership. Such poor integrity; a business model that is built on disorganization and squeezing money out of every client, with very little concern for truly impacting the lives of people.Continue reading

Skilled Human Resources Management Needed25 Mar 2013 - Of the People in Bowie, MDRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Inovalon will hire/promote anyone, no matter how inexperienced you are at the position. The location is not bad if you live in the Wash DC area.
Management has a "do as I say, not as I do" attitude. This company is plagued with inexperienced VPs, Sr. Directors, and Directors. Too many over paid chiefs, and unfortunately skillful “associates” who are not valued. Bonuses are given to “associates” who are close friends with the ELT (Executive Leadership Team), unless you’re the only “associate” within a department getting an equity increase. Specialty teams are hired to clean house within the company, and when the idea of an investment opportunity dwindles, the team disburses and moves on the next investment. Attempts at being “employer of choice” are not met, because leaders and the champions of change don’t have a clue as to how to accomplish this objective. Management does not communicate with the line staff; associates are placed into roles/positions they have no interest in fulfilling. Expectations are unrealistic, you are expected to work long hours, weekends and there is no work/life balance. This company experiences a lot of Department of Labor compliance problems.Continue reading

Make Inovalon Great Again23 Jan 2019 - Anonymous Employee in Bowie, MDRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Non-Executive Associates are great and work very hard. Multi-cultural company
still looking for minorities being represented in the C-suite and on executive team. Probably never going to happen as they have had very capable candidates, however they were passed over for promotions in favor of less qualified associates who better fit the "look" of Inovalon. It is a good ole' boy company as evident in the leadership. It is the most toxic company I have ever worked. There is NO work life balance. You better come with your own phone and once you give your number out, it's a wrap. Everyone will have it and you will be expected to respond to text messages outside of normal working hours. It's literally like a sweat shop without the textiles. Beware....layoffs happen every February/March. Like clockwork. So if you need stability.....DON'T APPLY.Continue reading

Meat Grinder2 Dec 2015 - Anonymous Employee in Bowie, MDRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
If you are looking for a pay check you will receive one. You will wear multiple hats and be pushed to the limit. A good place to see how long you will last before you will second guess your whole life existence on how the Hell did I land here.
If you are looking for a career, this is not the place. If you want to see how long can last before you mentally break than this is the place for you. There is No Work Life Balance, Management will run a good employee’s into the ground. High Turnover, Very Low Morale. If you take a job there ask your peers how long have they been there.. Most likely less than 2 years. If they have been there for over 2 years they are probably in management or have some strong connection to management. Ruled by the Iron Fist that you will lose your job if you don’t sacrifice your personal life for the company. Bonuses is an inside joke they tell future employees to take less for their current salary.Continue reading

I finally left this company that treats you like a number7 Jul 2014 - Anonymous in Bowie, MDRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
I have had great relationships with coworkers. Great people keep leaving the company and the cool-aid drinkers remain.
This company has been going downhill fast. It starts at the top and the culture does not promote the people who stay late and work so hard and that give up time with their families. No work/life balance. I have sacrificed so much working here. There is no leadership direction or valuing of the employees. I had to endure abuse from the CEO and officers who shouldn't be in those positions. They treat women poorly like they have no value. There is no diversification, just white men who try to run the company. They don't want your opinion. They tell clients what they should buy and don't listen to the client's needs. They don't appreciate their sales people, their client service people or product departments. They keep losing clients and I am embarrassed to work for such a company and that is why I finally left. Really consider if you want to work at Inovalon. You will regret it.Continue reading

Cronyism, Chaotic, Un-ethnical21 Nov 2014 - Director in Bowie, MDRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Salary, majority of the people
AAll of what you have read about MedAssurant/Inovalon on glass door is true. I have been an employee here for over 5yrs. This has to be one of the worst companies I have worked for in my career. The company does not value its employees and the attrition rate is horrible due to the lack of leadership and good management. The management from the CEO down to some of the Managers levels has no clue on how to manage. There is no true management training where the managers can learn how to manage people. If you get stuck with a bad Director or Manager, then your job and career path with be severely hindered. Some Directors and Managers constantly undermine you, even if you are a Manager, and do not allow you to have autonomy with managing your team. Coaching and mentoring is only done for those who are in the group that are taking advantage of the system. There are several people in management positions just because they have been there for some time or they are good friends with the upper levels. For instance, you have Vice Presidents that have risen to this position even though every product he has worked on or managed has eventually failed. I have never seen so many individuals get promoted when their performance was sub-par. In addition, they would make up positions crafted specifically for individuals. MedAssurant/Inovalon is ethically bankrupted. Clear and defined roles and responsibilities do not exist. Since there are not clear and defined roles and departments and individuals are constantly pushing work off onto other teams. The departments and units do not receive a clear vision or mission from leadership. Lately, the only thing that seems to matter is the bottom line, trying to make the company look good to go public. It’s a very chaotic environment and everything is a priority. Depending which client is threatening to leave is what client issue you are working on. This happens because leadership sells the clients on how much revenue they will generate to them with pie in the sky analytics. There is no true strategic planning and no proactive actions to improve the products or systems. The company never takes to time to improve its existing products or IT infrastructure before they move on the next big thing. Employees are constantly working more than 40 hours a week and there is no work/life balance. It is expected for you to have not work/life balance and if you are not at their beckon call, they you are not going above and beyond therefore you are not exceptional no matter if you solved a problem saving the company millions of dollars. The cronyism and family connection is rampant. There is so much backstabbing and tearing down of employees making it difficult to be successful. Instead of providing support and coaching to employees, they ignore you and try to find a way to diminish your role and eventually fire you. They work with other departments to work around you and keep you out of the loop. This is no way to provide an employee with the tools to be successful. Also, some Directors and Managers taint your reputation across the company telling others that you are incompetent, never providing any assistance or knowledge sharing, only with people in their select circle. The management also blocks employees from moving from teams to other teams. If you are either unhappy with your role, management, or you just would like to do something different, if the management believe there is a greater need for you to stay where you are, they will do everything within their power to block your move. Although there are serious issues with management and some of the practices of this company, there are some great people who work there. People who strive to do better day in and day out. People who work to improve the products and processes the company sells. Many of these people go unnoticed and are acknowledge for any positive impact they have had. There is also a Foreign National problem where they are hiring under qualified Foreign Nationals, friends and family members. Once they are in a management position, all others are not given the opportunity to obtain key positions. They mainly work with each other and exclude others on their team. In addition, they are manipulating the system by changing job descriptions in order to improve the Foreign Nationals status for a green card. There are least 5 Foreign National couples working there that I know of. I believe the Office of Inspector General and EEOC need to investigate. There may be some laws being broken which why I believe a human resource employee who was responsible for this process up and left when the company switch from contracting the legal services to in house. It’s a very toxic department to work in. If you are not a mentally strong individual you will not be able to last a week. In the last two months at least 20 individuals have left the company within two weeks of working here. The company pays well, but what you have to deal with on a day to day basis may not be worth it. I would strongly recommend not working here if you have options.Continue reading

The pros include compensation package, gym benefits, morale events (although inconsistent across the company), location, training, career advancement, and experience.
Culture, working from home is at a manager level and becoming rare, unrealistic demands on workload, unrealistic expectations, no work life balance, young managers with little experience, etc.Continue reading
